Len'Nyah Almajoyce Harris (affectionately known as "Princess Len'Nyah") of Toledo, OH was born on March 8, 2008, and went home to be the Lord on December 29, 2012, in Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH.
To know Princess Len'Nyah was to love her. She had an amazing personality for a little girl; when in her presence there was laughter and joy that consumed the atmosphere. Her joy was contagious, especially the way she captured our hearts with her "knock-knock" jokes and sense of humor. Princess Len'Nyah was an avid ballet dancer and a computer iPad expert. Her favorite color was pink and her most memorable words were "what the heck". The most significant thing about our precious Angel Princess Len'Nyah is that she loved her some Jesus. We marveled at the way she memorized the bible as read to her by her mother and quoted scriptures confessing the promises of God over her life.
Princess Len'Nyah was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal great-grandparents, Mabel Lee and Guy Staples Sr., Alma and Paul Ulis Sr.
Princess Len'Nyah leaves to cherish her memory, parents, Janella Clayborne and Leonard Harris Sr.; maternal grandparents Brenda Staples and James Clayborne; paternal grandmother, Vanessa Harris; brothers, Deontre' Willingham, Dontay and Leonard Harris; uncles, James Clayborne Jr.; aunts, Tamica (Forrest) Soward of Columbus, OH, Tiana Harris, Reanna Carpenter; uncle, Chris Harris; 13 great-aunts; 5 great-uncles; 6 great-great-aunts, and host of loving cousins and friends.
Our Angel Princess Len'Nyah in God's Garden
God looked around His garden, and found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine". It broke our hearts to lose you Princess Len'Nyah, but you didn't go alone, for part of each of us went with you the Saturday morning when God called you home. Yesterday you dwelt among us as a precious glimpse of love, joy and inspiration. Today you dwell in our hearts as an Angel sent from God filling us with peace, strength and courage to go on.
