The photo of Lennon in a tiny white topless cage with a spray of millet, that was the morning of the day he passed, he was so weak. He only made this tiny squeak sound, like a baby keet.
When Lennon was in the basket, yes, that's when he was fighting to stay alive. I'd see him breathing, then he would exhale and not breathe in, and I'd think that I wanted him to hear something comforting as he passed, and I'd say stuff like "Remember when you used to feed Bijou?" "Remember how you loved to run around the floor with Scouser?" and he'd turn over from his back and begin flapping to try and stand up again. It wasnt' until the evening that I thought I should film it, just a few seconds of it. I was actually trying to film his tiny squeak sounds. The second clip of him in the basket, that was about 1:30 am, about 15 minutes before he finally passed away. I realized that I was keeping him from passing, and that I really had to let him go, even though I didn't want him to go. I'd say "I love you Lennon. I want you to live. Please, live." and he'd turn over and try to live.
Kariva: do you have Windows Movie Maker? You can upload your video clips to that, and edit them there, as well as adding photos and sound. I also have a free version of Roxio, and it's a bit more complicated, but you can also use that. I'd start off with Microsoft Movie Maker first.
