Jaeda Rose Simmons|
Norfolk - Our hearts are thankful to God for the precious life of Jaeda Rose Simmons, a gift of love from God. We humbly bow in submission to the Master's Plan as Jaeda joined with the heavenly angels, and passed peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.
Jaeda's earthly journey began on February 19, 2013, as this little angel was the third of three children born to loving parents, Melissa Williams and Bobby Simmons at Chesapeake General Hospital, in Chesapeake, VA. This was indeed a blessed event and evidence of the graciousness of God.
The Master endowed Jaeda with such sweetness of character, as she embodied many beautiful and endearing qualities. A close and loving relationship with her siblings was quite apparent, as they shared playtime together.
Although Jaeda's earthly pilgrimage was brief, she touched and illuminated the lives of many. Her young life was like an exquisite jewel, glowing in glorious splendor, and radiating love to the world.
Precious memories - how they linger. Will be cherished forever by: loving mother, Melissa Williams; loving father, Bobby Simmons; brothers, Malik and Jalen; sister, Jayla; grandmothers, Marjory Williams and Pearl Simmons (Robert Manson); grandfathers, Ronald Williams and Kenneth Douglas; All of Norfolk, VA; grandfather, George Bradley (Celest); aunt, Stephanie Hampton; uncles, Jermaine Bradley and Darian Bradley; All of Ellenwood, GA; uncle, Rodriguez Bennett of Jacksonville, FL; aunt, Louise Woodard; uncle, Jeffrey Woodard, and big momma, Lillian Woodard; All of Tallahassee, FL; and a host of other relatives and friends. The family would like to recognize Dana Davis as a special friend of the family.
Jaeda shall surely be missed, but we are eternally grateful to God for the celebration of her exemplary life. She now rests in the loving arms of Jesus and will forever live within our hearts.
