6/28/2003 – 12/24/2011
Llhee Daane Perkins, 8 year old son of Daniel & Shelly Perkins, of Edmore, left his earthly home on Christmas eve and went to be with Jesus, his gentle shepherd. He was born on June 28, 2003 in Carson City.
Llhee was born a special child, who loved everyone. He never knew a stranger as he always said, “hi” to everyone he met. He loved going to school, riding the bus and could be seen at Montabella sporting events all the time. He was very special to all of his family and although he has gone to his heavenly home, his legacy will live on forever; not only with family, but with everyone who ever knew him.
Llhee is survived by his parents, Dan & Shelly (Sprague) Perkins of Edmore, his grandparents, Dave & Gaylene Sprague of Gowen, Dave & Sharon Perkins of McBride, his siblings, Lindy DeNae Perkins of Valdosta, GA, Lance Dennis Perkins of Grand Rapids, LaNel DeRaye Perkins, Loren Daniel Perkins, and Logan David Perkins, all at home, his aunts & uncles, James & Deb Baker of McBride, Tim & Sheila Perkins of Edmore, James & Dana Fisk of Vestaburg, Patrick & Jackie Bowler of Gowen, Jeff & Andrea Sprague of Gowen and his cousins, Andy Fisk, James & Lindsay Baker, Josh Baker, Alyssa Baker, Jordan Baker, Tyler Perkins, Travis Perkins, Trista Perkins, Myra Sprague, Molly Sprague, Isabell Baker, Violette Baker, Heartley Baker and Karlie Fisk.
Funeral services for Llhee will be held at the First Congregational Church, Stanton on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 beginning at 11:00 A.M. with Pastor Jamey Nichols officiating. Interment will be at the McBride Cemetery.
Visitation is on Tuesday, December 27th from 4:00 until 7:00 P.M. at the Simpson Family Funeral Home, Sheridan where the family will meet with friends and relatives.
In lieu of flowers, memorial considerations can be left at the funeral home; the family will decide on a memorial at a later date.

Dear Shelly and Dan, I never met Llhee in person,but feel as though I knew him thru the many postings on Fb. I prayed for him when he was in the hospital, rejoiced when he came home. I know Shelly from school, my heart aches for your loss, as a parent. I pray for peace and comfort for your family. Llhee is in heaven and in a perfect little body to go along with that perfect smile he already had. Know that you have many friends who are wrapping our arms around you all and squeezing you tight. May God bless your family. R.I.P. little man. Sincerely, Patty Pixley.

: ( My heart is breaking for you all, but for Angel Boy, I am so glad he can run, skip and play! I wish he didn’t have to go, but I know he’s in the arms of Jesus right now! Jesus said, “Come all ye who are weary and I will give you rest”! He knew Angel Boy was tired of this earthly fight, a fight he tried so hard to do, so Jesus came and took Llhee hand, and took him where he could run, skip and play! :’) He no longer is weary, and Angel Boy’s smile is helping to light up Heaven! My heart-felt hugs to you all! Love, Cheryl Johnson

I’ll never forget when Llhee was first born. Shelly you would bring him to our volleyball games, and Lindy would carry him around…I do believe she was asked a few times if he was her baby :). I’m so sorry that he is no longer her physically. But LaNel said it perfectly on FB whent he angel fell from your tree…He will always be with you all. Love you guys!

Shelly, You have been an awesome example to us all in how to cherish every moment that we have with the ones that we love,not only is Llhee running and playing but he has perfect sight and hearing now see and hear. I know that is what Arabella has told me about heaven. She is looking forward to not wearing aids. I thank you for listening to me when I know you had just as much on your own plate plus more. God Bless and I will continue to pray for your family.

I see countless Christmas trees around the world below with tiny lights like heaven’s stars, reflecting on the snow. The sight is so spectacular; please wipe away the tear, for I am spending Christmas with Jesus this year. I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear, but the sound of music can’t compare with the choir up here. I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring, for it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing. I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart, but I am not so far away; we really aren’t apart. So be happy for me, dear ones; you know I hold you dear, and be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly father above; I sent you each a memory of my undying love. After all love is a gift more precious than pure gold, it was always most important in the stories that Jesus told. Please love each other, as my father said to do, for I can’t count the blessing or love he has for each of you. So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear, remember— I am spending Christmas with Jesus this year…. I MAY NOT HAVE SAID IT ENOUGH BUT “I LOVE YOU ”

Lance and I worked at Village Inn together for a few months. I remember crying for joy with Lance one day while we talked about Llhee’s latest and greatest. I never met him, but he was talked about so often at work that I felt like I did, and I am very sorry I never got to meet him for real. My deepest thoughts and toughest prayers go to your family at this time of loss. We rejoice in the Lord together for Llhee’s time spent here on earth with his loving family and I pray for healing in the hearts of those left behind for now. May peace follow you in the days and weeks to follow, and faith that you will be rejoined as a family once again with your Father in Heaven some day!
