“But Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of Heaven’” (Matthew 19:14).

Amenia Rose Hart was born July 13, 2020, to Jacques Purvis and Tyler Derell Hart and Lavonte Bates. She departed this life on Friday, July 9, 2021, at Our Lady of the Angels Hospital in Bogalusa.

Her time with her family may have been short, but her impact was huge. She was born an angel, always happy, loving, and full of life. Our family has our own Sleeping Beauty. Sleep in Peace, Amenia.

Amenia leaves behind a loving mother, Jacques Purvis; fathers, Tyler Derell Hart and Lavonte Bates; five sisters, Ty’Laysia, Tylasia, La’Mydriana, Lakyn and Layla Bates; one brother, De’Vontrae; aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and a host of other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by grandparents, Toy and Roy Purvis and Barbara Cooper; two uncles; and one cousin, Autumn Cross.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, July 17, from 10 a.m. until noon, followed by funeral services at noon at Crain and Sons Funeral Home in Bogalusa, with Pastor Michael O’Ree officiating. Interment will be in Bogalusa Cemetery.

Crain and Sons Funeral Home of Bogalusa is in charge of arrangements. Sign the guestbook online at
