i too am sorry to hear of your loss.
i lost a keet 11 days after finding it abandoned. it was sudden too. altho, i think he may have been suffering while we were away for christmas. a friend was caring for the birds during that time. anyway, the morning after we got home he ended up being so far gone that he went before i even got a chance to get him in my vehicle to go to a doc. i watched him close his eyes for the last time. it was hard for me, even tho i barely knew him. i felt so bad for not being able to do anything for him. i guess i got lucky with sky tho, since she did not seem to be bothered by his death. not sure they were even living in the same house when i found them anyway. who knows, he could have been sick before i found him too. i do know he is in a better place now, as are your little keets.
don't think you are being mean by saying what you did. you are just looking out for the well being of your fiance. its all good. still sad that he is taking it hard, but at least he does have his little baby still, along with the other birds.
good luck with any other birds you do decide to get.
