Christian ran into his Heavenly Father’s arms on Sunday March 23, 2014. No longer limited by Spina-Bifida, he is free to run on the beach, play football and baseball!!!! Christian was born in Atlanta, Georgia and was sealed to his family in Memphis, Tennessee.
Christian loved playing on the beaches in Israel, Miracle League Baseball, watching the Dallas Cowboys, playing with Thor his standard poodle, seeing his friends at Jenny P. Stewart Elementary, relentlessly teasing his nurses and most of all spending time with his family and friends.
Christian is survived by his mother, Heidi Lyn Edens, Centerville; father, Brandon (Jacqueline) Edens, Ogden; brothers, Jory Edens, Rexburg ID; Gabriel Edens and wife, Kelsey of Twenty-Nine Palms, CA; Paxton Edens, St. George; sisters, Alexanderia Edens, Edmonton Canada Mission; Adriana Edens, Centerville.
A celebration of life will be held during recess, his favorite class at 12 noon Saturday, March 29, 2014 at the Centerville 9th Ward Chapel, 1475 N. 50 East, Centerville. Family and friends are invited to say goodbye to Christian from 10 to 11:45 a.m. immediately prior to the Celebration of life.
The family would like to thank the nurses at Ivy Lane Pediatrics; Everyone at Primary Children’s Hospital; Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital; and Mike and Ernie of “Ability Found” The miracle of Freedom.
The family requests in lieu of flowers or gifts that donations may be made in Christian’s honor to “Ability Found” www.abilityfound.org.
