Bird, Stone Everett, - of Ocean View,NJ, Just six months into his life, passed away peacefully in his sleep during the evening of February 8, 2021. Although his stay was brief, he was ever so loved and gave love twofold. A joyous baby who was happiest when he was surrounded by his family, Stone loved cuddling with his mommy, watching the birds with his daddy, and being played with by his many brothers and sisters. He wore a smile that melted your heart, a giggle that filled the room, and eyes that looked deep into your soul. When you hugged and squeezed him he hugged you right back, always. There was a special love, peace and healing that always surrounded and expended from Stone, and everyone he met felt it. His cuddles, his playful kicks, and his sweet smile will be deeply and forever missed. Stone is in the arms of many angels that passed before him; his sister Chelsea Bird, his uncle Jeremy Becotte, paternal grandmother Debra Bird, and many other loved ones that are holding him close until we are reunited again in heaven. He is survived by his mother and father, Ryan and Jessica (Becotte) Bird, brothers: Josh, Michael, Jayce, and Phoenix and loving sisters: Eva, Dylan and Talula, his paternal grandfather Craig Bird, maternal grandparents Jim and Jan Becotte, and countless aunts, uncles and cousins. Services were private and intimate, with a celebration of his precious life to be announced at a later date. Thank you to all who have called on the family and to all of the first responders for their efforts. "And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed." - Maya Angelou For condolences to the family please visit www.godfreyfuneralhome.com
