In Loving Memory of Baby Kelson

On May 10th, 2017, John Kelson James Boneventure, was born to Jori Lejeune and Justin Boneventure.  In the early morning hours of July 2nd, at 7 weeks old, Kelson was found unresponsive while visiting friends in Houston. Due to the quick actions of his parents and EMS workers, he was able to be transfered to Texas Children's. The tough Angel he was, Baby Kelson spent his last day in the Children’s ICU at Texas Children's Hospital fighting for his life.

Baby Kelson passed peacefully and warmly in the arms of his loving mother surrounded by all those who loved him on July 3, 2017.

Baby Kelson’s love and warmth was the answer to his family’s prayers and will forever live in the hearts and memories of those who had the opportunity to meet this little angel. Baby Kelson’s time on earth was spent being kissed and hugged by Ayden and Fisher, gardening in Lot 5 Farms, cuddling with his favorite soft toys and blankies, and being held caringly by his mother, father, grandparents, aunts, uncles and his loving brother and sister.

We thank all for the support and love Baby Kelson has received from friends, extended family, and our community members.

An indispensable amount of gratitude is extended to the doctors, nurses, and first responders who did everything possible in their attempt to save this little angel’s life and for the comfort they provided him and the family from the moment Baby Kelson walked into their lives to the time of his passing. 

Your prayers, thoughts and assistance in any manner is appreciated as Jori and Justin's angel makes his final journey into heaven.

Fly high beautiful angel, and be the brightest star at night for your loving family. We all love you so much, Kelson - you will forever be in our hearts little man. 

** I am a family friend of this precious family that has just experienced the unexpected and sudden loss of their seven week old son. Due to this circumstance and the extravegant medical bills and unforseen expenses, I have set up this GoFundMe (with their permission) in order to help ease these financial concerns for this young family so they are able to morn without any additional stressors. 

Any donation, big or small, will help ease this financial pressure. If you don't have the financial means to donate, prayers and support for this family during this difficult time will be greatly appreciated.
