Vernon, It is about 17 years since beautiful Nana passed. 10 years ago my beloved pet pigeon, Max, died of old age - at 20 years old. I still miss him but we are together in spirit as I`m sure you and Nana are. They live in our hearts for ever. My two pet pigeons, Robbie and Whitey, had to leave me for Heaven last December. So as a bird lover I really feel for your loss. Perhaps my three pigeons have met up with Nana. They give us so much love: no wonder we miss them after years have passed. One day we will fly with them in the blue skies of Heaven - for ever.
