TO HONOR THE LIFE OF HEAVEN CAROL PHIPPS, INFANT DAUGHTER OF TONYA PHIPPS AND STEVE NELSON, TO EXPRESS PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SENATE UPON HER UNTIMELY DEATH, AND TO EXTEND DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HER LOVING FAMILY.
Whereas, it has been five years since the death of little Heaven Carol Phipps in 2008; and
Whereas, Heaven Carol Phipps was born premature on January 24, 2008, at Laurens County Hospital to Tonya Lyn Phipps and Steven Wayne Nelson; and
Whereas, almost two months old, on March 17, 2008, she suddenly developed a fatal infection and sadly passed away despite the efforts of so many; and
Whereas, Heaven was deeply loved by her parents, step brother David Nelson, step sister Trinity Gittens, and grandparents Frankie and Ronnie Phipps and Verna and Frank Nelson; and
Whereas, during her short life she brought so much love to her family, friends, community, and church; and
Whereas, Heaven was a child of God from birth and her life will forever be cherished as a treasured gift from the Creator; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate would like to celebrate her memory and offer heartfelt joy for the beautiful gift of her life. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the Senate, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the death of Heaven Carol Phipps, infant daughter of Tonya Phipps and Steve Nelson, and to extend deepest sympathy to her loving family.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the family of Heaven Carol Phipps.
