Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart.
Psalm 24:3-4 RSV
On November 13, 2014, Justin and Vonnesha Shepherd Hervey and Diamond welcomed the birth of Little Miss Aprly LeeAnn Hervey. She was a happy bay girl who brought joy to the lives of those she touched. Smiling is what she did best. Aprly warmed easily to everyone and she loved hugs and kisses. Her trademark was cuddling.
On Thursday, April 9, 2015 she slept into the Lord’s embrace. She was welcomed home by her great grandmother’s Cynthia Ford and Armelia P. Golden; uncle, Kenneth R. Caldwell and great aunt, Linda Faye Woods.
Her precious little memory will be cherished by her parents; Justin and Vonnesha; her oldest sister, Diamond Shepherd all of Eldorado, AR; grandparents, Robert and Rebia Ford of Junction City, AR, Michael and Yvonne Brown of Eldorado, AR and Reginald and Ellen Ford of Camden, AR; her Godparents, Jalisa John and Marques McElroy of Camden, AR; and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Why God Takes Little Angels
When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child.
Who does so much to make our world seem so wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold
So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them and so He takes but few,
To make the land of heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows will always be Goodbye.
So when a little child departs we who are left behind
We must realize God loves children
ANGELS ARE HARD TO FIND!
