I married the guy that is Michael's PaPa!
Jess saw Michael at the pet store looking very sad when his pet shop pal, an Umbrella cockatoo left to go home with a new family. Michael went home the next day with Jess.

it still pains us to know that you are no longer here on this Earth with your family, but I knew the time would come where you would re-establish contact with your loved ones in their dreams. I know they can feel your presence, because it is only your earthly body that left [your soul has joined theirs and has become one]and your memories will forever live in their hearts.The Rainbow Bridge is a wonderful place as it lets all residents keep in close contact with those left behind. I am sure they still cry now and then because they miss your physical presence, but slowly they will find out that now you are everywhere...you are the angel on their shoulder. you are the whisper in the soft breeze and you will be the delight in every snowflake that gently coats the ground in virgin white as winter approaches. You are ALL and EVERYTHING now [an entity of infinity]

Michael of feathers gold and blue----thief of heart and soul and undying love------a love untainted, always faithful, always true------a love that now touches all from above--------a ray of sunshine brightening every day------a twinkling star that lights the way.

Hi all. I just wanna say that Mom & Dad are doing better.Momma was crying when she wrote this though. We see each other in ours dreams and faith keeps us going. I've been working very hard to teach my new younger brother, Alan Michael at Mom & Dad's house. I give tips to Alan every day and he is learning fast how to behave. He's a good kid and I hope Mom & Dad keep up beautiful way they take care of him. My flowers and pictures are there with everyone and I'm very happy and healthy here at The Rainbow Bridge. I know I'll see Mommy And Papa someday. Alan's picture will show up soon right along side me. Love to all, Michael

This is a very tough note for me to get through and I could not even tell you on what page I read about Michael's passing. Everytime a winged creature is called home everyone here on BC feels the loss.We never had the pleasure to meet that gorgeous fellow, but I am a slave to a blue and gold macaw myself and just the thought of loosing him is unbearable. I hope that your pain eventually eases a bit and you will find comfort in the happy memories that he left behind in your hearts. Michael traded his birdwings for angel wings and I am a firm believer that is what he lives on as....to watch over you from a place where he was needed as a helper of a special sort. Please know that your pain is shared and deeply felt:(

  (~> Michael & I say 'Hi" from The Rainbow Bridge
Hello Mama & Papa. I am Rosalie Hale Bopp. And I have recently had the pleasure of meeting your Michael up here at the Gates of The Rainbow Bridge. Now mind you, we don't usually have the standard 'BoyBird/GirlBird' kind o' relationships up here at The Bridge, but I gotta admit, when I spied that Blue & Gold wingin' his way in my direction, I had one o' those "WOW" types o' reactions! What a looker!! ~~ But I'm gettin' ahead o' myself here. (That happens when ya get distracted by a hunk like Michael, I guess.) I'm comin' up on two years at The Rainbow Bridge myself, and my job up here is a kind of a self-appointed 'Welcomin' Committee ChairParrotson'. Interestingly, I hail from Michigan originally too. Hatched and raised there for 10 years, then moved to South Carolina with the flockily where My Boss (The Big Guy, The Head Honcho, The Big Kahuna...uh...er...yes, Sir...that is Heavenly Father) decided that I'd make my journey to The Bridge up here shortly before my 11th HatchDay. ~~ But, I digress...AGAIN. I'm so thrilled for you that you were able be in the spirit company of your Wonderful Michael during your return drive on that Sunday afternoon. And you're absolutely right, all of the BirdChannel Flockily Fids who've made the journey from the planet are Angels here at The Bridge. And it was all of us that helped Michael show you that gorgeous rainbow to let ya's know that he's okay. That was our way of cappin' off the festivities that centered around his arrival up here. Let's see...we had a yummy buffet, featured menu items bein' Cheez-Its, Pistacios, and Toast with Peanut Butter & Jelly! And that silly Michael, ate every tidbit with his LEFT FOOT!! Then, o' course, his accomodations were abundantly decorated with fleece blankets of all colors, patterns, and thicknesses. (Since we didn't have a lot of advance info on his parrotsonal preferences, we thought we'd just cover ALL the bases!) He met the entire Rainbow Bridge Flock, My Boss (of course!), and got the '25¢ Tour'! And now we're all just kickin' back gettin' to know each other and adjustin' to the Perfect Life we have here whilst we wait for our reunions with those we love still down there on the planet. But no rush; the time'll come. And it'll be like it was before...only BETTER! ~~

  ~~ I gotta run. I've about used up my alotted time on the HeavenNet for the day. By the way, you can reach Michael any time ya want or need by leavin' him a note. We all check our BC pages reg'lar like. (But I suspect you already know that.) But cooler than that, Michael can be with you ev'ry time the breeze blows. When ya feel that gentle caress of air movin' across your cheek, that'll be him strokin' ya with his wing tip or sneakin' in a beak kiss. And if ya listen real close, you'll be able to hear him whisperin' in your ear too. But he's always around, watchin' over you and his fiblings, whether he lets ya know it or not. He loves you and is missin' you just as much as I love and miss my mom. ~~ Someday...

  From Michael at The Rainbow Bridge
On Sunday October 4th, Michael's Mom & Dad were driving home from Sandusky,OH. We were 100 miles from home. At the beginning of our trip back a beautiful double wide rainbow came down so bright that we were speechless at the beauty, the brightest widest rainbow we've ever seen. The brightness stayed for just short time but the double wide rainbow wing lasted a very long time and faded far away. We drove home quietly, thinking this must be the sign we needed to help our hearts. Just as we turned onto our street here in MI a very soft lovely rainbow came down again. Michael had followed us all the way home safe and sound. Our hearts and souls miss him so much. Thank You for all your prayers. Please send more and know that all of our angels are there at The Rainbow Bridge.

Come visit me, Jimmy, Michael & Patches.

I am so sorry for your loss! He was a very beautiful boy and I'm sorry we never made it over here to meet him.. I read about his passing on Vinnies page. I have 2 memorial pages for all the BC friends that we have lost over the past 2 years and I would be honored if you'd let me put Michael on my memorial page. Please let me know and again, I am so sorry for your loss.
You and Michael are in our prayers.

  Michael's family --
My heart is breaking for you. I am so sorry that Michael could not find a way to stay on this plane of existance for you -- I'm sure he would have if he could have.

He was a beautiful bird, and if tears will help him find the way to a happier place, be assured that he has ours.

  Hi, Jess, Kathy, Patches and Jimmy
My friend Dewey told me that Michael had passed over the Rainbow Bridge, and I wanted to stop by to let you know how sorry I am to hear that...it is always such a heart-wrenching thing to hear, and even though I had not met Michael before, Mom and I know that your loss has to hang heavy on your hearts. He was a beautiful fellow, too...and we want you to know that we are saying prayers for all of you. I know that he is flying free and has been welcomed by so many others who have gone this year...Codie, Turk, Pebbles, Ruby, Aries, Rosalie Hale Bopp...As long as you keep Michael in heart, he will always be with you.

Our deepest sympathy,

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Michael! Since I already met Patches I had to fly over and say hi to you! You are a handsome fellow! Glad to meet you. Do you and Patches and your other flockmate all get along? I am an only bird, I'm not sure if I'd like to share my household. I even had my own cage at the Bird Park where I lived for a while, because I didn't seem to like other birds much. Hope you're having a great day...Cya...
