Aleigha Lynn Vernon-Hewlett, of Burgaw, infant daughter of April Lynn Vernon and Justin Ryan Hewlett, was delivered into this world on Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015, remaining in the care and arms of Jesus.

In addition to Aleigha’s parents she is survived by her siblings, Luis Martin Perez, Aubriana Hewlett and Brayden Hewlett; grandparents, Jesse and Karen Vernon and Rick and Janet Hewlett; great-grandparents, Martha Vernon, Mavis Barrett and Ronald and Carolyn Batts; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.

Aleigha said to us, I was but a tiny babe growing in my mom’s nice warm womb. I looked forward to being your little one and growing up on earth, playing and being a happy and loving daughter, sister and granddaughter. But I soon found out that was not to be. Instead of being born on earth I was born in heaven and what a glorious place heaven is. God took me in his loving arms and cares for me as I hear the angels sing lullabies to me. Mom and Dad don’t worry about me. I will grow and run and play with all the little angels and God will take care of me. God will take care of you, too. A day will come when we will meet again. Love, smile and remember I am fine and you will be too. Most of all remember I love you.

Aleigha entered into the hearts of her parents and many loved ones, bringing a great amount of joy to them even before the day she was delivered.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015, at Burgaw Baptist Church, with the Rev. Nathan Morton officiating.

Please leave online condolences for the family at Quinn McGowen Funeral Home.
