Little Master MiChaun Darnell Dandridge was born on September 22, 2021, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital. On the day of his birth, his parents, Dominique Alician-Marie Rice and Mickiese Trovonne Dandridge of Birmingham, Alabama were bursting with joy.
Our angel MiChaun met the eyes of Jesus on January 15, 2022, and transitioned to be with our Lord and Savior. The voices he is now hearing from the Celestial Choir are those of his great grandparents, Elois Watts, Clyde Rice, Carol Jean Houston and Mrs. Rosa Coleman and grandmother, Lisa Faye Dandridge.
MiChaun had a huge personality. He brought love and joy to everyone who met him. He was brave and had the biggest smile. Though his life was short, the mark he left on the hearts of his family will last forever.
