I know her grief. We own a Lavender Crested Amazon that we inherited from DH's mom (may she RIP) but before "Cletus" we owned a Quaker parrot named "Clovis". He was the most amazing little guy I've ever seen. He spoke in complete sentences, I kid you not, and had a vocabulary better than many 12 year old humans.
We were dog sitting my aunt's doxy...the rest is tragic history. DH and I grieved bitterly over the loss of our little guy and could not bring ourselves to bury him. He resides, in a place of honor, preserved and sealed with his favorite toys, in DH's former cigar humidor, on a book shelf here in the great room.
BTW, Cletus is approximately 20 years old now, but it's common for this breed to be 70!
I'm considering bringing him camping with us on a trial trip soon. I have a Lexan like "Wingabago" bird carrier that would make that easy for all of us.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:
