A Tribute To Ebony
Ebony, you came into this world as a part of us.
God blessed us with a loving daughter and you
existence here on Earth has changed our lives.
The memories of you we will always treasure.
Your departure was so unexpected, which makes this
pain ever harder to bear.
Ebony, you were always there for your brothers and
sister when you were needed.
The time that we spent together, all those special
moments, the walks, the talks, will live on forever until
we meet again in Heaven.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me
to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still
waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for
thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine
enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth
over. Surely goodness and mercy shallfollow me all the days
of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
