We returned home today from visiting John's father, to find Charlie had passed away. He was a 22 or 23 year old cockatiel, and their lifespan is about 20 years, so it wasn't unexpected. That doesn't make it any less painful to realize that his little, happy, eccentric personality won't be around to be enjoyed anymore.

He was an important and integral part of our lives. We'll miss him dearly.
