From the Mouth of Bayla # 22 : One less family member

I know that it sounds like a human in our family died but sad to say ;it was Sylvester. He died yesterday night after he had been given medicine. I was so happy when we had saved him and we were all convinced he would NOT die but we were wrong. Now were all crying. Sylvester I just wanted to let you know I love you, we ALL love you. Sylvester, we will always love and remember you, Sylvester there will NEVER be a duck like you. All our love, Bayla, Lucy, Andrea & Mark. :-)

Bayla (Now 9!) is the youngest member of the Clan Ross-Blevis. You can read more from Bayla here.

    Awww – I'm so sorry to hear that. I was wondering about the little fella today. Hang in there – I know it's hard, but you all did the right thing in trying to help him, and I'm sure he was more comfortable with you and at the centre where they have lots of experience helping birds.

    Dear Bayla,

    Thank you for caring for the little duckling and giving him a name. Your loving care is exactly the sort of gesture that changes the world, Bayla, and makes it a better place for all of us, even the smallest most vulnerable ones. Someday I hope to meet you and your loving family. Perhaps we can share some stories about the little things in our lives that have made a difference. You are a shining star!
