Ariyonte Deray Grace-Holloway

Journey began on April 16, 2007

Found in heaven on September 10, 2017

On Monday, April 16, 2007, Brianna Smith and Adriel Holloway were blessed with a beautiful baby boy Ariyonte “Tae Tae” Deray Grace-Holloway. Ariyonte was found in heaven on September 10, 2017. Ariyonte was a protector with the heart of a hero and a smile that shined in the dark as bright as the sun.

Tae Tae brought joy and smiles to his 4th grade classmates and teachers at Chase Elementary. He really enjoyed participating in group activities. A true person. Tae Tae was fascinated and awaiting his chance for a place on a football team with a positive encouragement from his uncle Ralpheal Gannaway without a doubt he would have been a shining star.

Tae Tae often said he wanted to become a police officer. That’s because he always wanted to help people, save people, and make things better. “Our little Batman”, a hero in disguise. Tae Tae loved video games and music. He and his brothers and sister often made up dances to perform for family and friends. So energetic. So full of personality. His favorite car was the new model Camaro and without a doubt at his preference the color blue. Tae Tae loved to visit his family. “Can I go over my granny’s house” was a permanent part of his vocabulary.

He was a perfect piece to an imperfect puzzle. We all miss Tae Tae beyond what words can describe and we will be patiently waiting to see his delicate bright lightened and innocent smile again. We love you baby boy with every bit of heart and every drop of soul.

Ariyonte was preceded in death by great grandmothers, Alberta Grace and Emma G. Brent; grandfather Johnson Grace, and cousin Michael Grace. He is found in heaven and is patiently waiting for his devoted mother Brianna Smith; his father Adriel Holloway; step-father Neil Gross; his adorably loving brothers and sister, Arion Grace, Ariyah Green, Artavion Green, Neil Gross, Niles Gross, and Noel Gross; great grandmother Anita Gannaway; grandmothers, Theresa Grace and Cheryl Holloway; grandfather Shawn Gannaway, uncles, Richard Rainey, Ricardo Gannaway, Raphael Gannaway, and Chrystopher Holloway; great aunts, Lisa Grace, Rayshawn Gannaway, and Roberta Bishop; aunties, Brittany Smith, Breunna Grace, Breashia Grace, and Tamekia Holloway; and a host of family and friends.

    Dearest Family of your beautiful beloved Tae-Tae, we don't know what to say except that we care about you and your family. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah does and he will keep you and your family close to him. We hope that our prayers will help comfort you a little. While words fail to express the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to express the joy of having our Heavenly Father return Tae-Tae back to you. Ps. 37:11, 29. John 5:28,29 Please accept our sincere condolences, Diane and Family
