December 01, 2011 It is with great sadness that we bring you the news that our beautiful Laura. the Yellow-Naped Amazon that has lived in our lobby for the last several years, passed away today. Laura spent her first 30+ years living with a San Diego County resident. When her first owner died she came to live with the Jenkins family and eventually moved to the Hospital where she could spend her days talking with and entertaining the Hospitals clients. . Laura was the example of what a parrot should be. She was well behaved, intelligent, and funny. She had a huge vocabulary and loved everyone. Laura developed relationships, not only with the Hospital staff but many many clients as well. Her passing will leave an empty place in our lobby and in our hearts as well.
