Our Teacher, Our Friend, Our Maggie

The classy gentle spirit that we know as Maggie is at peace and wrapped in her Savior's arms.

I will miss her more than you know, but when I do, I will always find her at her best in the fabric of the threads on this site.

I Love You Dear Friend.

This in indeed very sad and shocking news.

I expressed my condolences earlier to Lewis and his family via the online guestbook but also wanted to post here acknowledging my sincere condolences to all the Pigeon Talk members on losing one of our long time members.

Maggie you will be missed.

Let us find safety where we are welcome to stay.

I am shocked to see that!

She was indeed a fine lady, and a wonderful friend to the birds

I was shocked and saddened to hear the news yesterday.

Maggie was one special lady, who always had a kind word for everyone and never tried to intimidate anyone, even though she was one of the most knowledgable and caring persons on our website. She was one person who gave this website class, and I will miss her dearly. Even though I didn't know her personally, she would send me a PM now and then...and let me know she was there for me and had my back.

My heartfelt condolensces go out to Lewis and the rest her family-including the "Pigeon Talk" family, and of course.... her special feathered friends, who will also miss her dearly. I'm sending prayers for them.

May you rest in peace, Maggie.

May God bless her entire family during this very trying time.

I have been so shocked and stunned since I heard of this devastating news. Dear Maggie was such a very special and caring person to everyone and all the birds she has nursed back to health over the years. It was such a pleasure to have known her through this pigeon-loving community. I will miss her greatly.

I can't believe it!
I'll bet she had a Grand,
Feathered Escort when she reached the Rainbow Bridge. Can you just imagine?!
Poor Lewis. My heart goes out to him.

SHE died,—this was the way she died;
And when her breath was done,
Took up her simple wardrobe
And started for the sun.

Her little figure at the gate
The angels must have spied,
Since I could never find her
Upon the mortal side.

Emily Dickenson

If all the beasts were
gone, men would die
from great loneliness of
spirit, for whatever
happens to the beasts
also happens to the man.

WHAT!? When I read the title, I figured something was up...then when I read that she had passed...I was in total shock. I guess after being here so long, you start to feel like the members like her will be here forever to talk to and get advice from. Like they're too great to die. Although we all know better than that, you still can't help but feel that way.
She was so close! Or at least, compared to most members here. I just wish I could have actually met her
Rest In Peace, Maggie.

I was absolutely heartsick to hear this terrible news.

Maggie was an absolute sweetheart, kind and helpful to all...humans and animals alike. Just a simply wonderful caring person. And I will miss her so very much.

Thank you for posting this thread, Feather Wings! You, too, are very special to me!

Maggie and I joined PT around the same time. As many of my family site members know, Maggie was very special to me. So much so that I, at times, referred to her as "my sister separated at birth!" I so admired and respected her and Lewis and thought they epitomized what a loving rehab couple should be.

I don't believe the soul/spirit ever "dies." Maggie's spirit will always be with us.

I had the oddest thing happened this morning. My good friend, Vera, called and said she had found a young pigeon in her back yard who was missing tail feathers. She caught the young one and will be bringing over to me. Laugh if you will, but I am positive Maggie had a spirit hand in this!

I have had this poem for a long time and these words say how I truly feel. This is the original version written by Mary Frye.


Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.

I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the star shine of the the night.

I am in flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room,
I am the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there. I did not die.

Love and Hugs Maggie and Lewis...always
Shi and Mr. Squeaks

I just don't have words to express my absolute sadness. Maggie was so very special. I will miss her so, so much, her huge kind heart and vibrancy and wisdom she brought to all of us.

We mourn this unspeakable loss that leaves such a hole in our lives, as God takes back one of his favorite angels.
A rescuer's work is never done
"You can judge a society by the way it treats its animals" -Gandhi

Talk to me,
Coo to me,
Bow to me,
Listen to me.
And I'll teach you
To fly with me
And I will love you
Like no other....
