BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A Life Celebration and Memorial will be held on Saturday for Aniah Blanchard.
The ceremony will take place at 12 p.m. at Faith Chapel. Doors will open at 11:00 a.m.
Faith Chapel is located at 100 Mike Moore Boulevard in Birmingham.
Organizers say the service will be a celebration of Aniah’s life and will commemorate Aniah and the impact her life and “light” has on the world. One thousand balloons will be released after the ceremony.
“They’ll hear special music regarding Aniah. They’ll see pictures regarding Aniah. The family has worked to ensure that the people who knew her personally and the people who knew her distantly learn more about her,” said Jermaine Spann, Faith Chapel.
The family requests that everyone wear baby blue, black, or a combination of both.
The ceremony will be open to the public and will be streamed live.
