Jesus loves the little children, all the little children of the world red, yellow, black and white they are all precious in his sight.

Since we know this to be true, we understand He only takes the very best. On Wednesday June 28,2023, He called little Princess Chanaiah Elisa Drew to come play and enjoy a beautiful life in Heaven.

A Triumphant Homegoing Service will be held on Saturday July 8,2023 in the Main Sanctuary of Edenton United Methodist Church at 1pm. with Dr. Kattie Jackson Lamb Harrell delivering the Eulogy.She will Lie in State from 12noon until time of Service. On Friday July 7,2023 a Celebration of Life will be held at Pocosin Innovative Center from 6-8pm. During these lasting moments, family members and close friends will embrace the parents, grandparents and other relatives as we trust God during this challenging time. Following the Homegoing Celebration in the sanctuary, little Miss Chanaiah will be escorted to the Atmore Holy Temple Church Cemetery in Columbia, NC for Committal Services. As pure as Chanaiah was in her short time here on earth, her family can find comfort knowing that she isn’t in the space they departed from on Saturday, however, every time they see the sun shine or see a butterfly or even feel a soft breeze it will remind them that she is right there with them.

Guests are being received at her residence located at 100 South 6th street Creswell,NC where they will also assemble in preparation for the Prestigious Horton’s Ebony Motorcade.

The Compassionate Family of Hortons Funeral Home and Cremations is there around the clock to assist this cherished family during this difficult hour with genuine love and concern.
