Junior was born at 21 weeks on June 5, 2017 with a strength that many wish they could possess; as he tried to stay with us as long as he could, we all knew that he was needed in heaven. The Lord blessed his parents and attending family with 3 hours of the greatest blessing, his life. He weighed almost a pound, and was almost a foot long; he couldn't open his eyes, but he could see that he was loved very much. He looked like both, his mother and his father; from his mouth, to his hair, to his strong arms and legs, and back to his head and ears. Our beautiful angel was surrounded by love when he was carried to heaven by all those that have preceded him.
Jr is survived by parents, Cory Gibson Sr. and Ebony Jackson, Paternal Grandparents - Rickie White Sr. and Emily Gibson of Springfield, IL, Paternal Great, Great Grandmother Sylvia Penny of Sparta, IL, Maternal Grandparents - Jaimie Jackson of Springfield, IL; and Anthony (Tiffany) Jackson of Chicago, IL; Uncles, Rickie White Jr and Micah Jackson both of Springfield, IL, Great-Grandparents - James (Linda)Dumas, and several Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins.
A memorial service will be held on June 24, 2017 at 1:00pm; please email Emily Gibson at for details.
