On January 16, 2004, Thomas (Jayden) Galimore-Rhodes was blessed into this world by his loving parents Veronica Galimore and Thomas Rhodes. On May 13, 2023, he was given back to his creator far too soon.
Jayden was the most realist, loving, caring, funny yet very strong-minded young man who loved music. To know him was to truly love him. He was really royalty to his family. To his mother he was her love child, to his father, a true soldier. Jayden at 19 years old had a plan and was focused on what he wanted in life, stemming from a short roadblock that we all have crossed in life, but his family was so thankful that he saw that roadblock and curved it to a bigger and better blessing that was ahead. Jayden was a talented basketball player, dancer and full of enthusiasm to fulfill his life’s goals. In the short time we had our angel, he made a difference to so many, he embraced his own impact that he was working on and towards. Jayden was our angel and now he's our forever angel that will never be forgotten. There are not enough great words to describe the love we have for “Himms” and will not be a single day that we won’t miss him more than life. We will honor Jayden until we meet again. We love you “Himms”
