Franklin Boaz Rhodes
Jesus said, “My Father, Who has given (Franklin) to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch (Franklin) out of My Father’s hand.” John 10:29 NKJV
Heaven couldn’t wait and was rewarded with Franklin Boaz Rhodes, infant son of
Ethan and Jessica (St. Hilaire) Rhodes. Frankie was born August 22, 2018, and on October 27, 2018, at the age of two months, five days, he passed of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. He left an elder sister Adeleigh (age 4) and brother Timothy (age 2).
Frankie was trusting and secure in our love. Even as an infant he showed a remarkable ability to receive and give love. He was a happy baby and smiled constantly. He loved being held by everyone, especially Mom and Dad. He looked up at us with his big blue eyes, and we could tell he loved us, too. He will be greatly missed by his siblings who were so excited to have a baby brother.
He was an amazing blessing to all privileged to love him, which includes his maternal grandparents, Matthew and Melony St. Hilaire; paternal grandparents, Mark and Martha Rhodes; maternal great grandparents, Reagan and Elaine Couch and Shar St. Hilaire; paternal great grandmother, Lois Rhodes; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and distant family members.
The LORD “…heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3 NKJV
