We have had a death in the family. My personal pet and company mascot, a yellow-nape Amazon parrot we named “Flower,” died prematurely at home in a tragic accident. Known to hundreds of local children from over a decade of appearances at public events, her picture adorns our moving truck, my yard signs and many advertisements for Golden Real Estate. Only 14 years old, she had been expected to outlive us all, and we miss her deeply.
Donations in her memory can be made to the Gabriel Foundation, a Denver bird rescue organization. Their website is www.TheGabrielFoundation.org.
