Dreyton John William Sims was born on July 9, 2007 to Andre and Michelle Sims, in Smyrna, Tennessee. As a baby, he was always so loving by giving hugs, his special laugh, and just full of happiness. Dreyton always captured everyone with his beautiful smile and brown eyes. He made friends and touched many lives of people everywhere he went. Dreyton loved animals, fishing, motocross sports, video games, and especially his passion for football which made him so unique, and of course he was just “All Boy”. Dreyton loved being outdoors playing with his brothers, cousins, and friends. He brought so much joy to his family and friends. Dreyton played football for the junior pro leagues of Smyrna Bulldogs and Oakland.

Dreyton was always seen on the sidelines after all of his football games, cheering for his brother “TJ”, and the teams within his league. He often loved to be a special helper during his Uncle Rod and Grandfather’s games. He wanted to be a Defensive Back in the NFL. His favorite football teams were Alabama Crimson Tide and the Greenbay Packers. He also loved the University of Kentucky’s basketball team and would tell you they are going to win the NCAA Tournament every year. Dreyton attended school in Rutherford County, at Mitchell Nielson and in Bedford County, at Liberty Way.

 At the time of his transition from his time with his family and friends here to his time with God, he continued loving nothing more than spending time with his family. Dreyton will always be remembered for being so loving, happy, laughing, and always smiling.

Kirsheika Myshunta Turner entered into this life on August 27th, 1988 to bless the lives of her mother and father Sandrea Miller and Joe Kirkland Tuner. On June 24th, 2017 early in the morning Kirsheika’s Journey on earth was complete, for her wings in heaven were ready!

Kirsheika know by most as just “Sheika” Joined the body of Christ at Brandon View Baptist Church where she was baptized at an early age. She was educated in the Rutherford County School System where her personality shined bright and touched the lives of everyone she came in contact with. Her loving, outgoing and mischievous nature was one that you could never forget. Sheika marched to the beat of her own drum, played by her own rules and was a free spirit; which allowed her the opportunity to travel and live life to the fullest! She was always the life of the party, laughing the hardest, singing the loudest, swinging first and asking questions later! Sheika’s love for her children, sister and family was unconditional; and with the help of her family, her love and memory will live on. Sheika’s protective and caring nature is what got her the nickname “Harriet Tubman” because she was always trying to hide, help and harboring her friends from authority figures. To know Sheika was to truly love Sheika and there will never ever be another one like Kirsheika Myshunta Turner and she will be missed tremendously!!!

LaToya was a creative decorator and loved baking an array of tasty desserts. She put her heart and soul into everything that she did, with a level of class, sophistication, and excellence. You could always depend on her to use her talents decorating the church for various occasions. Name the event and LaToya could create a gorgeous memorable theme. Her brownies were one of her favorite dishes.

LaToya became a Certified Teacher and worked at Blackman Elementary School teaching 5th Grade Math and Science. As an educator she would take a hand, open a mind and touch a heart. She expanded her talents beyond the classroom as a member of the National Teacher’s Association.
