No more illness no more suffering just peace as someone so kind so thoughtful and so caring is deserving of. The world has lost a great soul and I have lost a special friend . Our family of friends is going to feel this loss forever. After all Eb who the heck is going to pick the Superbowl numbers

In life we are lucky to find good people with whom to surround ourselves.
There are so many of us that are beyond fortunate that we had Ebby as a huge part of our lives.
She brought so many of us together and was such a huge cornerstone in making us the incredible family that we shall forever be.
Eb, you helped lay the foundation for such an extraordinary and strong family of choice. For that we shall endlessly be grateful.
Though your soul no longer inhabits your body, it shall live endlessly in the hearts and minds of every soul you touched.
Rest in peace dear friend and sister of choice knowing that your spirit is everlasting.
Vicki and Laurin

Ebby had a gift for photography-- especially of the natural world ... hike trails and state parks were favorite places to grab snaps and share them with friends. She often made the picture frames as well. The puzzle of the Beach House was completed put together and the frame constructed by Ebby -- she said that if she could have anything, it would be a big house at the beach, with enough rooms for every friend and family member. This is what Ebby's Beach House would look like ... 
Rest Well, Eb and I'll see ya the waters edge.
