On Wednesday, April 19, 2023, Rome Brandon Smith, our beautiful baby boy, returned to his Heavenly Father and family in Heaven. He was born on Tuesday, April 18, 2023, to Brandon Scott and Heather Ashley Smith, with an unanticipated early arrival at 24 weeks.
During his short but impactful life, he brought his Mom, Dad, big sister Rossi, family and friends immeasurable joy and happiness. His arrival was the celebration of our lifetime. He arrived with a strong spirit, kicking his little feet and moving around as he heard our joyful voices around him. He showed us that he was willing to defy the odds against him.
Unfortunately, his strength was just too much for his fragile little body, and we lost him due to pulmonary complications. He passed away in the loving arms of his Mom and Dad, who, along with his big sister Rossi and many others, will cherish and love him forever.
His life will be celebrated on Friday, May 12, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at 1749 DiGiorgio St. Ogden, UT. Please come and let us celebrate Rome, share our memories and remember him.
We ask that you “come as you are”; dress comfortably, Rome would encourage casual dress.
