In Memory of Marla Felix

April 8, 2009




I just wanted to write to you to let you know how much Kevin and his dad Jay have gotten so much comfort from Di Vinci. Kevin’s Mom, Marla passed away unexpectedly 2 days before Christmas and I don’t know how they would have coped if not for Di Vinci. They love that bird and play with him every evening when they get home from school and work. He gives them so much joy. The other night Jay came home from work and immediately let Di Vinci out of his cage. (Kevin and Shawn had left that morning for a camping trip.) He put him on the couch and sat down himself. Usually the bird runs up and down the couch like a wild animal for about an hour before they can handle him, but that night Jay started thinking about Marla and a tear rolled down his cheek. Di Vinci immediately noticed the tear and ran over to Jay and looked at it and then licked it off of Jay’s cheek. He then went over to the other side of Jay’s neck and cuddled into the side of his neck and loved and cuddled with Jay and never left him the rest of the evening. Jay said he has never done that before. No playing around that night for him. Who would think that a bird would be that tuned into a person. They have him spoiled rotten. It is so funny to go over when they are eating supper as the bird has his own plate and eats with them. He’s their baby. Iam so glad that Kevin got the bird. Little did we know they would need it so much.  Peg Felix, Ja’s Mom.
