Elyjah Jenkins Obituary

"God gave us an angel, A sweet, smiling baby boy. Whose smile could light the dark. He gave him to us, to hold deep within our hearts. God gave us an angel, In the form of this ideal baby boy. He gave him to us, to change our whole world. God gave us a perfect angel, A special gift he gives very few. He gave us an angel, to touch the lives of many. God gave us an angel. Though we could only keep him for a while, He let us keep the memories that will always make us smile. For the only problem with having an angel, Is they're too perfect for this world.
