We don't think about it, but I've known about Chance for a long time, too. You and I first met in the late 90'sish. That's around 25 years. I feel like he was one of my own.
That's the downside of parrots. They do live long lives, yes, but having had them in your life for so long just means that you were that much more attached. It's always been very painful to me to lose parrots.
Also because they are so intelligent and interact with us on a different level.
Prayers for him, and for you as you learn to live without him. (((Hug!)))
Maybe continuing to feed the outdoor birds can now be in his memory.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
