Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart…..
Kennedy Nicole Hale was born into time July 6, 2006, in Little Rock, Arkansas. She was the child of Krystal Williams and Johnny Hale, Jr. Kennedy was called home to be with our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, October 16, 2012, at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas. She was a very strong little one as she fought a good fight and ended her course.
Kennedy was a very precious child that had a smile and laughter that radiated and warmed the hearts of those that came in contact with her. One of her greatest joys was listening to her Nana's voice and her mother singing to her. She enjoyed listening to music and being with her family, caretakers and other children at the various facilities she attended such as Easter Seals, Little Rock; Pediatrics Specialists, Arkadelphia; Arkansas Pediatrics, Little Rock; and Kids First, Little Rock.
Though her life on earth was very abbreviated, we are grateful for the beauty, joy and inspiration that she brought into the lives of many. The precious memories of her life will continue to remain within our hearts.
On several occasions, Kennedy attended Second Baptist Church in Little Rock, Rev. Kevin Kelly, Pastor; Mt. Morriah Baptist Church, Rev. Vernon Moody, Sr., pastor; and Tate Temple Church Of God In Christ, Superintendent Leroy Williams, pastor. It was always a pleasure to see her enter the sanctuary with the pleasant disposition that she portrayed.
She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Gladys Owens; her great grandmother, Missionary Bobbie Williams and her great grandfather, Murry Moody.
