Caden Christopher Lucas

— The exciting moments of pregnancy have turned to sorrow and heartfelt loss with the passing of our precious baby boy, Caden Christopher Lucas. He passed from this world, cuddled lovingly in the arms of his parents, Chris and Elizabeth Lucas, into the awaiting arms of Jesus on June 24, 2014, at UAB Medical Center in Birmingham.

Caden leaves behind a loving family who will cherish and miss him dearly: Parents, Chris and Elizabeth Lucas; grandparents are John and Kem Jinright, Peggy Lucas and the late Fred Lucas and Robin and Mona Turner; great-grandparents are Carol York and the late Von York, Johnny Jinright and the late Judy Jinright and Teresa Turner and the late Robert B. Turner Sr. Caden was also extremely loved by his very special aunts, uncles and cousins.

Graveside services will be 2 p.m. Sunday, June 29, at Roselawn Cemetery with Donald Terry officiating. Visitation is 1-1:45 p.m. Sunday at Limestone Chapel Funeral Home.

A life so brief, a child so small, you had the power to touch us all.”
