Goodbye Lily

In the Autumn we mourn

One who left too soon

Lily, November born

Bid us ‘bye neath the moon

Full of joy was Lil’ Lily

Happy baby elephant

Playful and sweet was she

In spirit, confident

Though illness took her away

From us and her family

We honor her today

For her sweet memory

Elegy

I am saddened by this news as I remember when Lily was born and everyone in Portland got the opportunity to vote on a name for her. I voted for the name Lily and was so happy it was chosen for her. It fit her perfectly. She was so sweet, lively, joyful and happy. She would have been 6 years old today 😪
