Heaven has been graced with the arrival of its newest angel, Oakley Monroe Kirkpatrick who was just 1.5 months old when she got her wings after being called home to God in the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh at 2:20 p.m. on Tuesday, November 26, 2013.
She blessed this Earth and the lives of her parents, Charles Aaron Kirkpatrick and Megan Grace Dempsey Kirkpatrick, at 6:19 a.m. on October 12, 2013. With just one look into her twinkling little eyes, they fell in love and formed an everlasting bond with this precious little soul. Although her life was short, it was certainly sweet, as she touched the hearts and lives of not only family and friends, but strangers far and wide who felt her promise of hope and peace this holiday season.
Her sweet, innocent spirit will be carried on in her family, which includes two sisters: Kami Grace Dempsey and Journey Lenay Dempsey; paternal grandparents Susan Kirkpatrick of Glenville; and Joey Kirkpatrick of Lost Creek; maternal grandparents, MaryAnn and Barry Dempsey of Weston; and Gigi and Poppy of Mingo County; paternal great-grandmother, Genny Kirkpatrick of Glenville; maternal great-grandmother, Francis Janette Dempsey of Weston; five aunts and uncles: Tommy and Amber Kirkpatrick of Pt. Pleasant; Carrie and John Ozales of Charleston; Monica Dempsey of Butler PA; Melissa Miller and Marla Dempsey, both of Weston; several cousins; her favorite little doll; and pet zebra and monkey.
Friends and family gathered to celebrate Oakley's life at the Pat Boyle Funeral Home and Cremation Service at 144 Hackers Creek Rd. in Jane Lew on Saturday November 30, 2013 from 4:00-8:00 p.m. Funeral services were held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday from the Pat Boyle Funeral Home Chapel Reverend Mike Ford officiated.
