Alexis (Lexi) Rain Henning, a beautiful sweet and loving 9 year old angel was called home to heaven on Sunday, April 30, 2017.  She was preceded by Debra (her grandmother) and Bobby (her great-grandfather).  She is loved and survived by Stephanie (her mother), Joshua (father), three brothers, her sister Kayden, Richard (her grandfather) and other family members and is also loved by many others.


Lexi's light always shined a little brighter, her heart was a little bigger and her joy was a little sweeter than all the rest. She was a "borrowed angel" only meant to stay for a little while. Just long enough to show us how to view the world from a different point of view, not to see the bad but only take in the good, not live with anger or greed but to only give joy and light. We didn't get to keep her as long as we wanted but through her we've learned no matter what the world throws at us to always return it with love and joy. She was the light in the darkness, unjaded by anger or fear, always bright always willing to give love without expecting anything in return. Words can never describe the beauty in her soul.


Her smile and laughter was infectious, no matter whom a person was and their state of mind, she was able to make a person smile and instantly touch their heart.  People say the eyes are the window to one’s soul and everyone could look at Lexi and see great joy in her eyes because that was her joyful soul sparkling through. 


A Celebration of Lexi’s life will be held in June. Details will be forthcoming through this website.

    My heartfelt sympathy to each of you .  No other pain will ever be greater than the pain of  losing a child. Our heavenly Father knows the difficulities you are facing. Through his Word he helps us to understand why death occurs and what he will in the near future do to rectify the grief that we undergo due to losing our loved ones to this aged-old-enemy (death).

    Romans 5:12
    Isaiah 25:8
    John 5:28,29
    Psalms 37:29

    My family wishes to convey our deepest condolences for the loss of your dear Lexi. Jesus comforts us with the promise that all those who have fallen asleep in death will be resurrected. Jesus proved just how he would do this when he resurrected his dear friend Lazarus! (John 5:28,29) May this promise bring you comfort in this time of great loss.

    My Dear Sweet Niece. I love and miss you very much already. Your beautiful spirit and glorious hair will be forever in my heart when I think of you. I don’t think that there has been anyone who took such joy of things that we normally take for granted. You have always been a Heavenly treasure. I’ll never meet anyone like you again. You sweet angel are very much loved by many. Send lots of love and comfort to your mom, sister (Kayden), your brother (Bubby), your grandfather (Ric/aka: Dragon) and the rest of your family. They are; and will be having a hard time for sometime. It’s very hard for us to understand why you had to leave us so soon.
    Hugs and kisses to you. I love you, your aunt Rita.

    P.S. Hey little Lexi, I watched your YouTube videos. They made me laugh and then I cried. You are such a cool person! You will always be in my memories. I’m so glad that you made the videos. Because of them, you will always be with us and we can see and hear you.

    Stephanie, my heart is breaking for you. There is no way that I can understand what you are going through. But know that I am here to listen or to cry or even laugh with you. I have enjoyed seeing how you are such a very cool mom and you did so much with your children that made some awesome memories. Lexi knew she was loved and cared for. It was a blessing to see. May God bless you and continue to hold you in His arms.
    I love you, aunt Rita.

    Always remember that God truly does love you even more than we can. That’s why He will always pursue you and when you are being cradled in His big arms like a little child; He will wipe away your tears, and you can feel His love. Let Him carry your burden for you.

      Dear Sweet Kayden, you are so precious and kind. I know that you love Lexie and will miss her so much. You are such a treasure and you both were blessed to have each other. You had such a big part of Lexie’s happiness and some great memories.
      You are deeply loved, never forget that. I’ll be here if you need me for anything.
      May the Lord Jesus keep you.
      Love you, aunt Rita

        I know that I do not know you or your family but I seen the video, The Other Side and your beautiful niece was in that video along with Annie’s brother. That song has such a wonderful meaning and it’s my all time favorite song. I was wondering what happened to Lexi. My heart breaks for the family because I know the pain you feel. I lost my son April 29, 2016. He was in a motorcycle accident. My thoughts and prayers are with Y’all always…

    Lexi was my best friend for 3 years. I loved playing with her. She would always pretend to be mad but would chase us during tag. I miss her so much! I won’t be there for her funeral because we moved to South Carolina but your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
