Important! Darra needs your support

Postby Judy C. » Sat Dec 16, 2006 5:34 pm

I just got off the phone with Darra. As you know, her flyers and lovebird live out in the office that Jerry built for her, and where she spends all of her time. Last night the heater out there malfunctioned, and came on full force. The heat killed Clancy, her lovie, and all but one of her flyers. She was able to save one of the flyers, and I just hope and pray that he is going to be OK. I will be seeing her next week, and am taking Lefty and Punkin, (two babies that I have), up to her if she wants them. I would write more but am crying too hard. Please send her your love to help her through this.

Darra I am so sorry to hear what happened, It seems we are so careful to feed and raise these babies and it is always something we never saw coming that harms them, I know what a good HOF you are and I know you are beating yourself up over this but please don't blame yourself, If there is anything I can do to help please let me know, My prayers are with you and if I could be there to give you moral support I would.

Darra, I am so sorry to hear about this. It is just awful, but it is not something that you could have controlled. Please, try and keep that in mind. I hope that you are able to save your last flyer. Sending prayers.

I just spoke with Darra and Ricky seems to be doing well ... curled up in her shirt. One of Darra's boys buried Clancy the bird, and Ripley, Rainy & Jole' the flyers. The thermostat on the heater malfunctioned and turned it on full blast in a VERY well insulated room. Darra's not sure she can (emotionally) go back into the office where they lived.

Oh Darra, I'm so sorry. (Hugs) My heart goes out to you, I can't imagine how devastated you must be. As everyone is saying though, please don't blame yourself for this. Ripley, Rainy, Jole', and Clance wouldn't, they all knew how much you loved them. My thoughts are with you. I'm sending my love and prayers that little Ricky will pull through.

Darra, my thoughts and prayers are with you right now. It is such a sad thing to lose something that we've loved so much. They knew that you loved them though and it wasn't your fault. I'll be thinking of you and hoping that Ricky does okay.

DARRA! OH NOOOOOOOOOOO! My heart has shattered with yours. I haven't been able to control the tears. Honey, don't know if you will be back on here to read this message any time soon, but i have changed my screen name for saftey reasons, a bit over a year ago my screen name was The Boo's Char, I was having trouble with my husband. I had Mrs. Lil "Bitsy" Boo and Mr. Boo Too that came from Mrs. Judy C. I have updated my profile with my current e-mail & etc. PLEASE call me if there is ANYTHING at allthat I can do.I wish that I could take all of that hurt away for you, if I could I surely would. God Bless you and Little Ricky. I will have you put on our prayer line.

Heartfelt condolences on the passing of Ripley, Rainy, Jolé, and Clancy. It's always especially painful to lose beloved companions in a tragic accident. I hope Ricky will be able to help you recover from this dreadful loss, Darra, and hugs to you both.

A lesson for all

Postby judy483 » Wed Dec 27, 2006 2:43 pm

Nothing can make up for your loss, but it might make you feel better to know that all of us just learned a lesson. I imagine heaters and thermostats will be double-checked in many flyer homes from now on. Your loss might save many others.

My computer crashed so I'm just now hearing about this. Darra, I am just sick for you & Ricky. Thank God you have each other to get thru this. Hopefully in time you will be able to go back into your office where you both had so many good times together. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
