On June 6, 2010, I was blessed to begin my journey with my mom, Kietra Camillan King and my dad, RoShon Jerome Brown. They named me Chanel Siyea Rickella King—‘The Chosen One’.
On January 9, 2011, I was given back to God in a dedication ceremony.
The summer of 2013 was when I found out that ants were not my friend!
On January 31, 2015, at 12:01 a.m., in an automobile accident, I was put through a test for two months of my life. God showed all of us that He was a miracle worker.
On May 18, 2016, I graduated from the Sumter County Early Learning Center.
This summer, I had the opportunity to be a part of the Boys & Girls Club of Plains, GA.
On June 6, 2016, I turned 6 years old. I was so excited about my birthday, because I knew my mother had lots planned! My cousin, my friends and I had an awesome time waiting to see what was next on the list of things to do.
On July 1, 2016 we took a trip to Panama City Beach, FL. While our stay was short, I had the time of my life. In the pool that evening, I went toward the light because God was beckoning me to come with Him. He said, “Not yet” and He placed angels all around me, and allowed them to bring me back from ‘the light’. I experienced difficulties during this time.
During the night of July 6, 2016 and midmorning hours of July 7, 2016 God told me, “I need you with me.” I was baptized by the Chaplain at Shands Hospital that evening. God said, “It’s time!” My final transition home was July 8, 2016 at 8:57a.m. I’m in the bosom of God now. I lived a full life in 6 years--more than any of you will live in a lifetime.
