It truly breaks my heart to make this announcement.

Shi (Mr. Squeaks) passed away at 1:30 this morning.


She called me yesterday afternoon about 1 stating she was feeling quite ill.
I was with my husband who was having a chemotherapy treatment and told her I would come over as soon as he was settled.

When I arrived at her place she was very short of breathe and had clinical signs of a possible heart attack.

I called 911 and it was determined after an initial exam that she be transferred to the hospital immediately.

From the emergnecy room she went straight to the cardiac cath lab to check her arteries. A blood clot was discovered in one of her arteries and it was confirmed did suffer a heart attack. She was transferred to ICU from there.

I spoke with her this morning ( actually yesterday morning) to see how she was doing. She said she was very tired and felt worse today then she did yesterday.
I spoke with Baya (her daughter) later in the day and she said she was doing OK, but not wanting to eat and just very tired.

I received a call around midnight from Baya stating that her Mother was not expected to make it through the night.
Between the afternoon conversation with Baya and when she called at midnight Shi had gone into cardiac arrest twice.

Chuck and I and Kim (KIPPY) along with Baya, her friend and daughter were at her bedside when she passed away.

My apologies if I seem to be rambling. I'm just pretty much at a loss for words right now.

Shi loved all the members here. She will be missed greatly.

Ive not been a member here for long, but Shi was always very welcoming to everyone, had a great sense of humour,and will be sadly missed by many.
My thoughts go out to her family & her pigeons who will all miss her terribly.

That's awful news to have to bring, Cindy, but thanks for letting us all know :(

She was indeed a popular member, and it'll be a long time before her banter with the 'nosey members' is forgotten

Oh no! :eek: I am truly shocked. Shi was one of my favorite people on this forum. She always had the nicest things to say with lots of encouragement. And she always knew how to make you laugh. I can't believe this :( We've lost a wonderful member, person, and pigeon lover.

Typical of our newest Guardian Angel, Shi's last post was welcoming a new member. The loss of this Lady leaves a void. I am so glad she lived every day to the fullest. I will miss her.

This is heartbreaking! Shi always seemed so full of health and energy I expected her to be around forever.

Shi, we will miss you so much. I have been weeping for my lost babies, specially Littlewood, Poppet and My Little Angel...I know that you will find them now and that as their Guardian Angel you will take loving care of them.

Oh my God. I can't belive it. I didn't think Shi would ever die. I know you all understand what I mean.

This may be the single saddest thing I can remember. Like Charis, it never occurred to me there might be a time without Shi around. When I first came to PT with questions because I had found a pigeon, Shi was the first person to really take an interest, and over the years we became long distance friends. She emailed me regularly, and was like a mom, seemingly always worried or concerned and asking me for news and updates about everything. She genuinely took an interest in all people, and cared about everyone. I am not making much sense so I will stop now, but I am so sad and I miss her presence so much.

Unbelievably sad news, totally unexpected. Like everyone else, I couldn't imagine there would be a day when Shi wouldn't be here, sharing her love for all creatures and her sense of humour. I'll miss her more than I can say.
I hope she's flying high and free.
