Thoughts on Pedro
Thanks for the thoughts about Pedro. I bought Pedro as a "special" friend on September 22, 1982. He helped me through SO much. Losing him has been hard, and it is doubly hard as I see what my mom is going through. She LIVED for that bird. She sang to him every night, covered him in his "special cover" on his cage. She played with him when he snuggled up to his mirror and stuck his head inside his bell and yelled. My father wrapped Pedro's body in his cover and buried him with his mirri and bell in the backyard under their St. Francis of Assisi statue. I'm going to get some Cherry Berry hosta for next year to plant at the statue as the hosta has deep red stems -- it'll remind my folks of Pedro's red "patch" on his head.
