Evan Parker Cornett was born on Aug. 26, 2012, at 10:50 p.m. to his loving parents, Chris and Lauren Cornett, at the Women's Center in Tupelo. He weighed 4 pounds, 10 ounces, and was 18 inches long.
we knew his life would be short, everyone who knew him during this time
was most certainly blessed by his presence. We anxiously awaited his
arrival and once he joined us in this world he visited with us for four
and a half hours before leaving his mother's arms and was carried away
by the embrace of our Lord. “There is no foot too small to leave an
imprint in this world” and he did just that. He walked into our lives
and touched our hearts forever.
We are honored and humbled by
the charity and selflessness of those around us. We give very special
thanks to Mary Meghan Mabus and Stephanie Rhea Barcia for documenting
our time with our precious little one and Will Rambo for his continued
support and prayer.
Evan is survived by his parents, Lauren and
Chris Cornett; grandparents, Jan and David Rowan, and Charlotte Walton;
great-grandparents, Katherine and Royce Hill; aunts, Leigh-Ann Corder
and Camille Rodgers; uncles, Denny Corder and James Rodgers; cousins,
Kelsey and Ethan Corder, and Adam and Ellinor Rodgers; and many
great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins and family friends. He is preceded in
death by his great-grandparents, Annie Lois and Byron Fitzgerald,
Jamison Rowan, and Argie Guy Cornett.
There will be a private graveside service at Pontotoc Memorial Gardens today, Aug. 29, at 2 p.m.
angel in the Book of Life wrote down my baby's birth. Then whispered as
she closed the book, ‘Too beautiful for this Earth.’” As we carry on,
you will never be forgotten.
Please pray for this family today.
