Kaleel O’shen Love, age 21 months, a resident of Rockwood, Tennessee, passed away Saturday, April 25, 2015. Kaleel O’Shen Love was born July 19, 2013 to Keonna Shantell Garner and Shaquille O’Shen Love. There’s so much good that we can say about Kaleel we don’t even know how to begin. He was loved by everybody and a little Angel sent from God to all of us to show us the true “Love of God”. It’s not the quantity of life that matters, but the quality of life. Even though, he was only 21 months old, his love changed everyone who met him. He will always be remembered by his affectionate smile and his contagious laugh (with that one big dimple). He wanted to hug and kiss on everyone. He loved to worship and praise God and to sing in the choir, (he was the choir). He loved to beat on the drums at church. He was an honorary member of American Legion Post # 232 in Harriman, Tennessee. He could take over the room when he walked in. He was always the center of our joy. He enjoyed the times he spent with all his family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his great-great grandparents, Elder Rue & Katherine Eskridge, Deacon Charles & Lillie Mae Douglas, Rev. Bossie & Eunice Davison, Deacon Robert & Lucille Lyle, Bro. Thomas Smith, and Bro. William Ervin; and great grandfather, Rev. Ronald T. Smith.
He leaves to cherish his loving memories:
His parents: Keonna Garner and Shaquille Love
Grandparents: April Chrisco
Gregory and Keisha Love
A host of great-great grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and other relatives and friends.
