March 4, 2021April 4, 2021

Ava Rose Stone, born March 4, 2021, passed from this life on earth into her life in heaven on Easter Sunday April 4, 2021, surrounded by her family at Egleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta, GA.

Ava leaves behind her parents, Christopher "Noah" Stone and Alexis Noel Evans; grandparents, Manuel and Tammy Stone Sr., Steve and Andrea Evans; great-grandparents, Madison and Louise Smith and Roger and Martha Evans and numerous other relatives and friends.

In one short month here on earth, Ava made an impact on her family, friends and a community of people; some of which we may never know, but we do know she was loved and prayed for by so many in the faith and family of God. Ava was and is truly a beautiful Rose that came in our lives, and she will forever live on in our hearts and minds until we see her again.

Ava, the impact you have had on us cannot yet be penned, neither can it really be explained or comprehended at this particular moment in time, but rest assure, as we told you before you left this earth for heaven, there will be a day when we will be together, never to be separated again, and the story, your story, can then be told. Together, we will enjoy the splendor of the King, the beauty of that heavenly city you now call home, and the companionship of all the family and friends you now know, and those of us who will be arriving one day soon. We can only imagine what you are experiencing at this very moment, right there in his presence being complete, and perfectly made whole. Mommy and Daddy, Pops and Mimi, Grand and TT, and all of us here are looking forward to us all being together again.

What a day that will be, when our Jesus and our sweet, sweet Ava Rose we shall see; oh what a day that will surely be.

A celebration of Ava's life and her one month birthday will be held Saturday April 17, 2021 at 7:00 P.M. EST. The celebration will take place at 402 Hunt Rd.; a private lake and pavilion where we all can enjoy the outdoors and each other's company.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Ava's honor to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta or the Ronald McDonald House. These two organizations were such a tremendous blessing to our family and are to so many other families as well. Ava would like that.

Oh sweet Rosie! We were so blessed to have you for 1 month. We were able to see God's handy work through you and those lives you touched. You brought people closer to God. Your life mattered. Even though, we will not get to see you grow up, we are beyond thankful to God for giving you to us to love. You will always be in our hearts. We love you and your precious mommy so much. Until we see you again!

I never knew your family, and never got to meet you, but I followed your story. Something about you, sweet girl, just brought me so much joy. Hearing your story, and watching how God worked through you was simply amazing. If anything, you were such a blessing to others, and I know you were able to open the eyes for others to see God more clearly. There was a purpose for you here on earth. God was ready for you to come home, so that you would be completely healed. It broke my heart to hear the news, just as much as your family's heart was broken. Thank God they will all see your sweet precious face in Heaven one day. I know you're having the time of your life with Jesus and family that have gone on before you. ❤

Ava Rose, Mimi couldn’t have asked or been more blessed to have gotten to hold you or talk and sing to you. Our family will never be the same. We will forever hold you in our hearts. We can’t wait to stroll hand in hand with you in heaven eternally. We love you so much sweet girl. Love you for ever and always, Mimi. ❤️🌹
