You have a kind heart. Wish everyone had a neighbor like you.

It may be worth it to contact a pet cremation place. Explain the situation to them and they may be able to offer some assistance. Possibly a grief counselor. The one year aniversary may be a good time to get the bird cremated, have a little ceremony, and move on.

Get a small box at a crafts store with a picture frame. Either place a small picture of the bird or place a couple feathers under the glass. Place the cremains and seal the box shut. It might be worth a few bucks for a kind gesture.

Actually, I do know exactly what it is like to love and lose a pet. I am offended by your comment, and take it personally. I am merely pointing out to the poster through the use of humor that by owning a pet, one must be able to deal with the fact that they will undoubtedly outlive the pet, and as such they must be emotionally equipped to handle it when said pet passes as opposed to leaving it in a neighbor's freezer for an indefinate period of time.
