In loving memory of our Cha-Cha who we love so much. Our little angel will be greatly missed. You will always be our sunshine.

Cha-Cha,

You came into our lives almost 12 years ago. I still don’t know if you found us or we found you – whatever it was, it was meant to be. You were born into this world as a beautiful vibrant sun. Your first couple years with your previous owners were full of misery and distrust for people. I thank god someone rescued you from that awful home. From that point on it was time for a positive change in your life. We were guided to each other and you were brought home one cold winter afternoon. We traveled far to get you and were so excited to see what you were! We didn’t know what to except – were you small, large, scary, friendly?? When we got home – you came out to me from this shoe box covered in a towel to keep you warm, proud as a peacock, all fluffed up, and curious yet scared – you didn’t know who we were. From that moment on we were bonded for life. I fell in love with you instantly! For years after this our love and patience paid off, you slowly began to trust other people and became the happiest bird around. You were our world and we did everything possible to keep you safe and happy. We loved waking up at sunrise to your call, getting you out right away and spending all our time with you – eating, cleaning, napping, showering, cuddling, playing games and gathering with friends or family – you were always with us. A lot of your time was spent in my shirt, popping your head out like a spy watching everything going on. This was where you felt happy and safe. I was part of you as you were as a part of me. I have never trusted anything as much as I did you; it was strange how in tune we were with each other. I could read your body language and your mind, I didn’t need to speak parrot to understand you! It was a delight having you in our lives! You taught me and daddy soo much about love, respect, harmony, and joy! We loved having you in our lives – you were our spoiled little girl! Who would of thought a parrot could smile!!! Birds don’t have lips right! Well you showed everyone just what a smile and joy was!!! Your expressions and constant affection can never be replaced. You were one of a kind!

When you were hurt and God took you out of your pain, this devastated us all. This was the saddest and most hurtful time of my life and always will be. It is so unfair how life could be so cruel. We did everything we could to save you and help you through but God said it was your time to go and be free. I wish that we could have been there to comfort you in your time of need. We did the best that we could for you and brought you far from home to seek the best help available. The doctors tried hard to save you, but for some reason, your little heart just couldn't take the stress anymore. When they called us to say that you had passed -  we rushed back to be with you one last time - we brought along your bed - to put you in there one last time, we know this would of comforted you. The whole family drove up with us to say good bye to you and hold you one last time. You were covered in our tears and smothered with our hugs. We still cry for you  little girl. We had pictured a life with you for years to come and looked forward to every sunrise again with you. I still look at the sun rising and think of you – the beautiful colors and warmth it brings each day just like you did. You were our little angel and you will never be forgotten; you will always stay in our hearts. A piece of us is now missing and we hold on to a million wonderful memories of you. Not a day will pass without you in our thoughts – we will miss you forever and always love you forever. Go fly free Cha-Cha and we will see you when God calls us home.

Love you forever,

Mommy and Daddy

 

 

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

Cha-Cha,

You were our big sister. You taught us soo much about having fun and how to carry our voices far! In no time at all - we sounded just like you - a loud squacky sun conure! We used to watch mommy, daddy and you playing all the time. When you would take a bath in the sink, we tried to copy you but we just weren't there yet - its scary! Whenever we go up to the bathroom to take a shower, we go on the spot you used to. We know this was your spot and we always say your name when we get there. The house isn't the same without our big sister. There is a picture of you on the fridge we kiss and say "Hello Cha-Cha". When we hear your voice on the TV or even a blue jay outside calling and think its you - we call for you.

Mommy and daddy moved us a bit ago to your spot infront of the big window - prime real estate in this house - we love the view. We carry on for you and sound just like you when people come to the house.

We miss you and love you!!!

Love,

Cherrio and Indie
