On the opposite side of the continent, a friend of mine was murdered by her husband, who then committed suicide. Their teen-aged daughter found their bodies. My friend was very active in the avicultural community, and bred her own flock of rare parrots. If I lived a few thousand miles closer, I would immediately drop everything to care for her flock of parrots as long as needed while her daughter and other family members sort things out. Alas, I cannot, but I am waiting to do what I can to help. Just tell me what you need and I’ll contact my web of friends.
