IN MEMORY OF
EBONY NICOLE HEARD
born July 10, 1998 and
died August 2, 1998.
by Regina Heard-Williams, her mother:
My sweet little Ebony was only 3 weeks and 2 days old when she
died. Ebony died of septicemia/sepsis. Ebony only weighed 2 lbs. 4 ozs.
when she was born. She was the most beautiful baby girl that you could
have ever seen. I really feel that Ebony knew that I was her mother. In
the neonatal intensive care unit, when I sang to her, she would hold on
to my finger on my left hand, but she wouldn't hold on to other people's
fingers. Ebony always had a smile on her precious, little face. She
looked so angelic, even before she died. I wish that she was still here
with me, but only healthy. I had so many hopes and dreams for Ebony.
Now they'll never come true. I know that she is in Heaven waiting for
me. It has been 2 years and 16 days since she was born, but I still
grieve for her. I know that I will never stop grieving for my sweet
Ebony, my little angel!!!!!
