Remembering Our Goofy LaRue

The Oasis staff are mourning the loss of one of the Sanctuary’s most beloved and wonderful birds: Goofy LaRue, a 15-year-old Goffin’s cockatoo. Over the 13 years he was at The Oasis, Goofy’s antics and personality stole the hearts of all and touched so many people’s lives. He was everyone’s friend.

Enjoy this beautiful memorial video to celebrate Goofy’s life, a work of love created by Oasis Caregiver Amanda Karpa. The video says it all…….

Goofy, you will be sorely missed but in our hearts forever.

We remember and honor all of the precious Oasis birds whom we’ve had the privilege to know that have passed on.

Don’t Cry For Me Today
Don’t cry for me today,
I wouldn’t want it this way.
Be strong and smile,
for you will see me in a while.
I know you miss me,
but now in Heaven I will be.
Do not let your tears fall,
for I cannot wipe them all.
Yes, my life wasn’t long.
But I’m begging you to be strong.
Live every moment as if it were your last,
I won’t forget any memories that have passed.
Cherish life and love as I watch you from above.
As I remember all of the good things,
I come to see I have gotten my wings.
It is time to go and fly,
as your guardian angel I will try.
Don’t cry for me today,
I’m on my way.
Soaring through the sky,
I watch all of you telling me goodbye.
