Your replies and thoughts after other night when kids 14 year old budgie died were agreat help, i never realised i would be so upset but was sad, kids loved messages and more would keep them happy as they keep adding flowers. For those who missed my daughter added tribute to Oz the budgie and good friend.

Hi wc

Shimmer remembers how she sobbed when her cats went ............ were part of the family. Wrote poems, has happy memories now but took time as were/still are part of family.

Son was upset too, needed lots of cuddles.

H Frosty

Perhaps a poem or something similar, helps Shimmer, puts in her memory box, reads every now and then.

"I'll lend you, for a little while, a bird of mine, He said.
For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he is dead.
It may be six or seven years, or maybe twenty-three,
But will you, 'til I call him back, take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, as all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there I want this bird to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in my search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you.

Now will you give him all your love - not think this labour vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again.

I fancied that I heard them say,
Dear Lord thy will be done.
For all the joy this bird shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shower him with tenderness and love while we may,
And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.

And should the angels call for him, much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand."

Hi Frosty hun

Have asked my granny g if can use this, think will bring great comfort to your children. Shimmer is getting house ready for sister's visit, has not forgotten poem.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal, bird, dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

Hope this brings comfort, I now know my cats are happy too.
