Tribute to Billybob!

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share a wonderful story about how love knows no boundaries!  My good friend Wendy is married to man named Dougie.  Twenty- five years ago a beautiful baby blue jay had fallen out of the nest and was deserted by the mother so Dougie's family took it apon themselves to hand feed and nurse it back to full strength. Now that it relied on human's for food it was unable to survive in the wild.  Dougie than decided that he would keep him as his own pet and named him Billbob.  When Dougie married my friend Wendy she was blessed with having this incredible pet.  Both of them cherished Billybob for years and he was very much part of the everyday routines.  I can tell you first hand how awe-inspiring it is to hold this beautiful bird and be able to pet him!!  Billybob passed away on Friday at the ripe old age of twenty-five.

In the wild, the life expectancy of a Blue jay is seven years. It just goes to to show you the difference that love can make in one's life! Here is a card Wendy had made me a while back with a picture of Billybob.

May he sing his song in the heaven's above, and bring the Lord the same happiness he brought Wendy and Dougie for twenty-five years!  Love knows no boundaries!!  Good-bye Billybob, you'll never be forgotten!


  1. What a beautiful tribute, Darlene! Thank you so much. Billy Bob was a very special bird and our hearts and home feel so empty without him.

  2. Darlene, this is a beautiful card. Love the beautiful bird, and you are a lucky lady to have received this.

  3. Darlene, you made me cry. Thanks to Wendy and Dougie, I was able to fulfill my dream to hold a real live bluejay in my hand. I will cherish that memory forever. Thanks you Wendy and Dougie for sharing Billy Bob. He will live on forever in your heart and memories. I am sorry for your loss. Sandra
