    Ebenezer the Donkey: 1979 - 2012


    On the evening of February 12, 2012, Grandview, Missouri lost its official goodwill ambassador. 32-year old Ebenezer the Donkey needed to finally rest his famous bones. For all that knew and were lucky to know him, he will never be gone. He’s just not going to physically be in a pasture just a click past Main Street in Downtown Grandview. Over the course of his life, he gave as much or more love than he received. He cheated death more than once and in all of those second chances, he carried on like nothing happened. The entire Kansas City metro believed in him enough on several occasions to both save his life and muster enough needed medicines to keep him alive. Ebenezer is the hero in the children’s book or the script to a Pixar Animated Movie production that gets to be rightfully immortalized for the rest of our days as we remember an amazingly cool animal. Thanks just isn’t enough for an animal that gave all of us so much .. but for now, it will suffice. For more on Ebenezer, go to www.ebenezerthedonkey.com
