Megan, I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear this. I can only imagine how you feel but Bill is okay now and you cared for him in a way very few people would have. Please feel free to call on any of us here because we, above all other people, can understand the loss of such a wonderful companion and you are a wonderful person.

Dearest Megan, I have nothing more to add to the heartfelt posts above, and I have papered the various Facebook threads with my thoughts and feelings for you and Bill. You are an inspiration to all of us who love and try our best to care for these special, fragile gifts from our Creator. Bill knows he is fiercely loved by you and he loves you still, as he is always in your heart and in the hearts of all of us who you so thoughtfully shared your wonderful companion with! Rest in peace and love, sweet Bill!
((((Megan))))

Oh, Megan, I'm sorry to hear this! You are going to miss him terribly, I know, but don't despair: Bill is no longer "mobility challenged"! He can fly, run, climb, and do all sorts of things he couldn't before, and awaits you.

Hugs.
Jody

Dear Megan, I'm in tears just reading this. I have been praying for Bill these past few days since I saw the post about him on Janet's Facebook page. I'm so so sorry. I know you loved him so much and I hope you still feel his love close to you. I don't believe a cockatoo's soul is ever far away, even when the body gives up and can no longer remain here on Earth. When your heart feels so heavy, try to feel that white winged guardian angel still sitting on your shoulder.

Please know that there's someone here thinking of you who understands.

Megan, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much you loved him and how you took such good care of him. Its amazing how these little bundles of feathers can bring us to our knees, not to mention the love they share. Bill was lucky to have you, you will see him again and who knows he may be teaching you to fly one day! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Megan,
I'm so sorry to read of Bill's passing. I haven't logged on to the mytoos boards in far too long but I've been following his story through Deborah Feathered Angels on facebook. He was lucky to be so loved.

Megan,

I am so sorry to hear this as well. He was so lucky to have had you in his life, and to help him in his transition at the end.

Megan,

Bill will be with you, in your heart always. If love could have kept his body alive, I'm certain he would have lived forever. (((BIG HUGS)))

I can't say enough to express my sorrow. It's not fair that our hearts can be broken like this. I'm so sorry for your loss...
