For a brief and fleeting moment, an angel touched the ground; with tiny wings and halo he blessed this place.  Blessing the lives of others, in beauty and in grace; Those who saw the tiny angel, knew God had kissed his tiny face.  The angel came for reasons we may never understand;  A journey brief, with gifts so great, and guided by Godís hand. 

So, rest now tiny angel, your work on earth is through, for Aerian Joseph Michael is now in Godís view. 

Aerian Joseph Michael, son of Allison Brandt, of Rockford, born still, at Lima Memorial Hospital, was guided by the tiny angel to Heaven on Wednesday, December 14, 2016.  He was the little brother of Averie Margaret Kaye and Abel Perry Wayne, both at home. 


The family will receive family and friends on Wednesday, December 28, 2016, at 1:30 p.m., at Ketcham-Ripley Funeral Home in Rockford, Ohio, with a prayer service taking place at 2:30 p.m.,  officiated by Father Ken Schnipke.  Burial will be at the convenience of the family at a later date.
