Kendall Marie Austin
January 20, 2004 - August 16, 2017
Palm Bay, FL
On Wednesday, August 16, 2017 Ralphael and Heather lost the first blessing that made them parents, their first born, Kendall Marie Austin. Her siblings lost their big sister and a family lost an angel on earth.
As their first born child, she gave them the greatest, most unconditional love and despite her limitation she lived her life beyond all expectations.
As brand new parents, Ralphael and Heather thought the world of their first born; they built their lives around her needs and strived to help her experience as much as possible. It was this passion that put Kendall out in the world to meet and affect the lives of others. Without one word Kendall could enamor those around her and charm anyone that met her. She was an example of pure love as a perfect child of God. Through many procedures and illnesses she won the hearts of all that met her. She rarely cried and smiled often. She taught us that you can overcome anything with the strength of a champ, the heart of a lion and the spirt of a warrior. As the family grew the focus was never lost.
Kendall was an amazing big sister. She loved her time snuggling with her brother Keagan and little sister Kinsey and they loved her too. Whenever possible they would help their mom and dad care for Kendall. They would read to her, listen to music with her and watch movies with her. When she cried, laughed, or smiled this family gave her their full attention because she was their rock of life.
Kendall's family includes her parents Ralphael and Heather Austin; brother Keagan; sister Kinsey, stepbrother Kayden; maternal grandmother Joyce Rogers-Ham; maternal grandfather Willard (Mary) Plamondon; paternal grandfather Howard Austin; uncle Wayne Plamondon; paternal great aunt Jackie (Henry) Ortiz, paternal great aunt Marcus (Russel) Wright; paternal great aunt Marilyn Daniels; paternal great uncle Lynward (Mattie) Jones and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother Barbara.
While we are all broken by the loss of Kendall we can rejoice in the fact that she shined on us all for thirteen and a half years. She made us work harder and be better because she overcame unbelievable odds. She had the most innocent laugh, the most beautiful smile, and her love would melt your heart away. God placed her here on loan and through her we learned what pure joy is; as well as, how much faith means. Kendall was an angel here on earth and now she is an angel above watching over us all.
Thank you God for all your blessings.
Services will be at 10:00am on Saturday August 26 at the Tamoka Christian Church, 344 Emerson Drive NW, Palm Bay.
