Last week when I read Darren's 'Farewell' I couldn't get through it without balling my eyes out. It still chokes me up and always will. I felt like I would never see or hear from Darren & Mar again, but in reality they are very close friends of mine that I have not gotten the chance to meet yet, due to the distance we live from each other. But one day we will meet, Mar & I consider ourselves long lost sista's .

They are not gone at all. Darren and Mar are just gone from the pages of this wonderful forum they and the other founding members who came here with them created for folks like us who have come along years later. Us newbies here who still hold the flame of love, companionship, a dedication for our members of our flocks, feathered and non feathered, parrot and human alike. hugu

I came to this place in Jan of 2012 after reading a sweet invite on a macaw forum that was not very active from a member of both places. I fell in love with this place and everyone here. I felt like I was part of the family, not at all like the stranger I really was to the members here. It has always been a comforting place for me and I feel like I get a hug every time I log on. Darren, Mar and all the members I met in that first year treated me like a long lost kinfolk. :twirl:

When Wendy, Debra & I decided to venture out and start a forum of our own, Wendy asked me if I would contact Darren about getting this one more active, since I already a member here and knew him. I did and he told me we were more than welcome to carry on the torch. That's when I turned it all over to Wendy"s capable hands since she knows the inside & out of the forum world. And this place took off with her hard work and dedication along with all of our members, established and new in just a short couple of weeks. thumb

I will always hold a special place in my heart for Darren & Mar for creating this place and for allowing us three ladies to continue the hard work he and the other members here began for our feathered darlings, kept going through rough times in the parrot world and can still stop by here and enjoy for years to come. grouphug
