But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them. For to such belongs the kingdom of God.”
Dearest baby, please know that our greatest blessing was having you
Rose Marie Blades born September 25. 2020 came into this world too soon and was taken too soon. Heaven’s gain was our loss when our angel was called by our Lord on July 30, 2021. Happy baby Rose loved nestling on her mother and watching Boss Baby, and always had a smile on her face. Though her life was brief, her memory lives on.
She is being greeted in Heaven by her great-grandparents Gwendolyn and Arthur Venable; 2nd great -grandparents John and Lizzie Thomas; cousin, Shadaya Carr
Rose will be deeply missed, and her memory cherished by her parents Shalona Wiley and Donte’ Blades, Sister, Suri D.M. Blades; Maternal grandparents Leslie and Michael Venable-Baxter; Paternal grandparents Robaire’ M, Long and Keith A.J. Blades ; Aunts Shanika Venable, Chadijah Roberts; Uncle Philip S.R. Blades, Great- Aunt Angela (ShaMeek) Staley; Godmother Quay Burch; God sisters Imeria, Mariah Surgick
Rose also leaves to cherish her memory a host of beloved relatives, and family friends.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, social workers, and staff at Albany Medical Center NICU and Pediatric ICU, The OHANA Foundation, and the staff of Community Hospice for your continued, prayers and loving support.
