28 Years, 2 Months, 27 Days

I knew Sammy wouldn't live forever. I knew I would never be ready to lose him.

I wasn't, and I am not.

He had a good life, freedom, spunk and an appetite for anything and everything. He did not die alone, he did not die in pain, and he did not linger nor suffer. I guess these are things we try to hang onto for comfort at times like this.

Yet comfort is a fleeting friend and pain is inconsolable at these times.

Sammy was loved, from the beginning to the end.

I hope you will all understand if I take a few days off from writing. Thank you.

I'm so sorry R. Sammy lived a wonderful happy life with you, but it's going to be hard on you and Stryder and Coco for a while. take care of yourself and I hope you start posting again when you are feeling a little better.
Thinking of you....

Ohmygoodness, I am so very sorry Robin.
Sammy was such a beautiful tiel.

He still is flying free again.

Please take care of yourself because Coco and Strider need you.

Hi Robin. Just wondering how you're doing.
All you can do is take one day at a time.
I'll bet Sammy is up in heaven telling all the other guys about his wonderful life he had with you.
Grief passes. Loving and happy memories are forever.
Take care.

I hope you are taking it easy and reflecting on all the good times you and Sammy have had. He had such a full and rich life with you. I believe you will meet again at Rainbow Bridge,until then know that he is watching out for you and Coco and Stryder . Take care, get some sleep and come back to us soon.
Louara and Gracie-Mae
