Born/Died on August 4th, 2022 at 2:11pm, tipping the scales at 4lbs 2.3 ounces. Branson was stillborn but was still born! He was delivered at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Jocelyn Hayes, 28, from Pasadena, Texas & Paul LeBlanc, 34, from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is proceeded in death by his Great Great Grandparents: Carrie Watts, John Hayes & Elizabeth Hayes. Great grandparents: Geraldine Rushing, Paul Rushing Sr. & Janet Brewer Potter. Branson had several siblings. He had 3 brothers, Gage, Bryce & Lincoln LeBlanc (Sebastian Diez- Graziano). He also had two sisters Lilly Hall & Brittyn Hayes (Alexandra Diez-Graziano). Branson has a very large family. Great-Grandparents: Joseph Hayes & Patsy Blair. Grandparents: Laquita Pogue, Thomas LeBlanc, & Tanya Hayes. Great Aunts/Uncles: DeShae Rushing, Crystal Price, Jennifer Hayes & Shelia Moody. Aunts/Uncles: Danielle Norris, Lauren LeBlanc, Christopher LeBlanc, Caleb Pogue, Matthew Pogue, Rebecca Pogue, & Tyler Hayes. & too many cousins to list them all. Hope Hoyt is his GodMother. He has no God Father.
Branson was called & taken home way too soon. However, he was called home before he ever knew any pain &/or unhappiness. He was born directly into the arms of the Lord & into the gates of Heaven. As parents, we are selfish & want nothing more than for him to be here & in our arms. However, being in Gods arms, he’ll never know anything but peace. He’s beyond happy, playing & laughing with the other babies & children that are no longer earth-side.
Our lives were touched by his struggle to be here/the joyful surprise that we got to know him at all. Please keep us in your thoughts as we prepare & come to terms with our lives here without him.
It is with heavy hearts that we honor & say goodbye to our precious babyboy. Some people only dream of angels, we held one in our arms.
There will be a memorial service at Seale in Denham Springs on August 27th. Visitation starts at 1. Services start at 2.
