Morgan Lynne Allen, precious newborn daughter of David and Shelby Allen, was born Friday, Nov. 9, 2018 and gathered into the arms of Jesus just a few hours later.
Although she was with us such a terribly brief moment in time, she made an everlasting impact on all who know her. We cherish each minute we were able to speak to, sing to and cradle Morgan Lynne with all the love in our hearts. Our great comfort is knowing she is now perfectly alive with Jesus and one great day we will see her again and hear her sweet voice.
Morgan is survived by her parents, David and Shelby; her sister, Allison Marie Allen; her grandparents Doug and Kathy O’Connell, Todd Allen and Clellie Allen; her uncles Coy O’Connell, Jonathan Allen and Benjamin Allen; and her aunts Caitlyn Allen and Caroline Allen. She is also survived by her great-grandparents Jan Wingo, Jasper Rogers, Sr., Polly Hart Garrison, Rebekah O. Rogers and Robert W. Allen, Sr..
She is also remembered by a great host of cousins, great-aunts and great-uncles, friends of David and Shelby and their parents and scores of family in Christ, who prayed for and loved Morgan immensely.
David and Shelby would like to thank the doctors, nurses and other caregivers at Duke Birthing Center for the incredible love and medical care they provided during Morgan’s transition of life; and Kira Atwell Grantz of Blessed Reflections Photography who did so much more than take photos. David and Shelby are also incredibly grateful to the volunteers who sewed Morgan’s Angel Dresses and sewed or crocheted all the many hats and blankets and provided precious mementos. The family would also like to thank the care team at Bright’s Funeral Home, who have been like extended family during this difficult time.
A memorial service for Morgan Lynne Allen, as well as time to visit with the family, will be held 4:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018 at Faith Baptist Church, 249 Holden Road, Youngsville. David and Shelby would welcome donations to Operation Christmas Child (www.samaritanspurse.org) in Morgan’s memory.
