This is dedicated to all of our companions who have passed




        Pepper, I miss you so much. When you passed away, you left an empty space in my heart and home. I will never understand why God took you away when you were so young. You were full of life and personality. I miss hearing your chatter and whistles. I loved you and you returned that love unconditionally. I remember when I went away for a weekend and when I came home you were so glad to see me that you wouldn't leave my side the whole evening. I wish I could have done more for you while you were sick. All I could do was hold you while you cried and cry with you. I am just happy that you are no longer in pain. I wish I knew then what I know now about PDD. I pray that a test will be discovered to diagnosis it and someday a cure. Eventually, I hope they will have a vaccine. I don't want anyone else to experience the pain and heartache I have gone through. You will always be remembered and hold a special place in my heart.
Your mommy, Jessica.

I never thought anything like this would happen to me, but it did. Pepper was only one year and five months old. After she started showing symptoms, she passed away in a week and half. I ask every bird owner to please donate to the Stop PDD fund and to be aware of the symptoms.
