of Alexis Mae Pickering
from Jackson, Mississippi
Daughter of Dustin & Brandi Pickering
Brandi was expecting her during Hurricane Katrina

Alexis was born December 21, 2005. 7lbs 12ozs and 20 inches long. She had a full head of auburn hair, and big blue eyes. She was so beautiful. God knows I miss her so. Our beautiful angel died January 28, 2006. She died in her sleep. She had the Roto Virus and we did not know and she dehidrated. We had no clue, Lord we wish something could've happened differently. She survived the storm with me but couldn't survive in this horrible world. 
Why God chose to take her with him, I don't know, but I do know one thing, he's got a beautiful angel sitting on his knee. One sweet day, we'll be together again. She had a beautiful funeral, you know it didn't even look like my baby laying in that casket. But I'm at peace now knowing that, that wasn't her lying there, she had already gone to meet with God, and he was rocking her in his big rocking chair. Please pray that we can get through this. Her sisters, 1 and 2 really miss her, too, I can tell. So pray for them, too. We'll never forget our little Lexy and we'll always love her.

***  Note from family:  We will appreciate anything anyone does for us. We were finally on our feet, but now work has been missed and we're behind on our bills. So it's seems to be one thing after another. May God Bless You!  ***
