A Tribute to Sebastian the Disabled Duck

In Loving Memory of Sebastian... a very special duck

A Special Place

You have a special place Dear Lord
that I know you'll always keep
 special place reserved for ducks
when they quietly fall asleep

With large and airy meadows
and a yard for finding bugs,

Lord, I know You keep this Special Place
And so to You I pray,
For one Special duck who quietly died today
She was full of strength and love
and so very, very wise.
she went to join the other ducks
To Your land that is so Divine
So, speak to Sebastian softly please
And give her a warm hello.
She's a Special gift to You Dear Lord
From Sharon, who loved her so....

Oh, did I love this tribute to this special duck named Sebastian, who sadly died on December 26, 2009.  But if it were not for his human mom, he would have not had the great LONG life that he did... and what a grand life it was, thanks to her.
Thank you to Mary Shafer at Almost Perfect Pets blog for alerting us to this story and then directing us to Handicapped Pets who shared the full story... be sure to check out the full story.  It is well worth it.

This story reminded me of "Lemon the Duck" which is also another true story about a disabled duck.
