Briana Chi’Anne “Bri” Lewis, age 7 of Springfield, went to be with the Lord hand in hand with her siblings on December 12, 2016.
She was born on November 12, 2009 to Brandon Lewis and Brittany Crayton. She would become a dancer of the family, and the sunshine of her brothers and sisters making sure everyone had a smile on their face. She was a daddy’s girl and was excited to spend the weekend with her older sister Keaja. Briana loved going to school at Krisle Elementary, excelling in writing; she looked forward to the new school year and the new things she would learn. Briana was a “Girly Girl” through and through dressing up and spending time with Keaja and Braniiya. Even though she enjoyed getting her hair and nails done she could hold her own shoot hoops with her older brothers. Briana enjoyed going to church on Sundays with Julissya at SouthHaven Baptist Church. “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them.”-Matthew 19:14
