Penny Ellisor Lovett
In loving memory of Penny Ellisor Lovett who went home to be with her God on 9/13/06

It has been a year. We still call her name, long for the sound of her voice and the loving touch of her hands. Our hearts still ache for the loss of her, but she taught us to smile through our tears and to live life fully each day until we see her again!
Much loved and sadly missed by family and friends!

Penny’s Song

Written for Penny by: Dawn Lariscey
Penny’s niece, God child and namesake

She is the backbone
She is the one who accepts the burden
If she staggers, it is not because she falters,
But because her great heart is only human
She has no patience with weakness or fools
She will haul them along despite themselves
Spirits like hers traveled in covered wagons
and ride in spaceships
Indomitable, She never bows
Her head is held high
She is root and trunk
She is the strong bow that prophet speaks of
She shakes her fist in the teeth of chaos
Yet, sustains, nurtures, comforts
Sing and honour her
She is Matriarch
