Amara Patricia Mary Ward - Sacred Heart Spiritual Society
After Dad passed I had found several of those mass and prayer cards from the Sacred Heart Spiritual Society, blank ones, that Dad had in his dresser (showing he must have liked them). Therefore I enrolled him in the Society, as of June 16, 2013 (Father's Day). So I will be enrolling Mum in the same, was going to do so as of July 31, but have decided to enroll her starting from her birthday, November 26, 2018. The card says "To hallow the memory and bless the soul and to implore God's tender blessings, (their name) is hereby enrolled in the Sacred Heart Spiritual Society, and will share in the daily Mass and prayers offered for all members of the Society. At the request of: ... " And it has a beautiful picture of Jesus and Psalm 23 and other prayers.

Amara Ward
For my birthday, July 22, I started a Birthday Fundraiser on Facebook for the ASPCA in Memory of My Mother, Audrey Ward. Our mum cared a lot about animals and in recent years whenever she saw the advertisements on TV showing the ASPCA rescuing abused and neglected animals, it was upsetting to her to see such cruelty, and we were thinking about giving a monthly donation, but somehow never got around to it. My goal on FB is to raise $100 or more. In addition to this fundraiser, I plan to hopefully start giving a monthly donation in her memory. ♥

Amara for Bobbi Bird
Oh my gosh, silly me. I forgot to add to my last candle memorial - my parakeets Nelly, Moondance, and Sundance, all so precious and loved. And any other animals or birds I may have forgotten. So sorry.

Bobbi Bird (our Congo African Grey parrot)
Hi Nana, I love you and I miss you so much. Since you had been living with Mummy Amara and me, I always liked when Amara would take me into your bedroom to say hello, and you were always so happy to see me and said how beautiful I am. But then when you recently went to hospital and the nursing home, and Amara took me in and you weren't there, I wondered where you were. Mummy Amara told me but I didn't understand. And before that, Mummy Amara and I thank you so much for all the many years you and Papa took such good care of me and taught me all the cute words to say, and whistles, and songs, and some I heard on the TV. And I also loved at bedtime, when you Nana would rub my head, and Papa would tell me a bedtime story about what we would do the next day. And then later after Papa went to the hospital and nursing home, and then much later to Heaven, Mummy Amara would come to take care of you Nana and me, and I loved how you both would tell me the prayer each night before I go to sleepy. They had told it to Papa many times and it always made him smile, about how everybody loves me, including Papa, Nana, and Amara, and Jesus, Mary, and St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Anthony, and they always ended it by saying "And Papa says, God bless you, and Good night, Go bless!" Amara loves that and so do I. And now Amara tells me every night the same prayer, and also how much she loves me, and what a good bird I am, and thanks me for everything, and ends it by saying, and Mummy and Nana and Papa say dear little one Bobbi, have a good cozy sleepy, and good night, go bless. Now Nana you are in Heaven with Papa and all our Ward family dear bird and animal companions, including Skippy, Lassie, Chelsea, Muffin, the Joey birds, Mr. & Mrs. Chippy, Misha, Molly, Emmett, Bailey, Emma, Mush, Geegee the guinea pig and the Japanese Nightingales, and all the Ward family birdies and animals, all very much loved. Thank you dear Nana, and Papa, and Amara, for all your love and care. And love to Uncle Jim and Uncle Steve too. I love you all very much. "Doo doo do do doooh" (the PC Richards whistle). from Bobbi, your parrot. xxx
