Barron Jacob Dorr



Tupelo - The Lord, in His love and sovereignty, brought Barron Jacob Dorr, home to Heaven on October 1st, 2017. Barron Jacob, treasured son of Jake and Jamie Dorr, of Tupelo, Mississippi, passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus after battling two months of sickness at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Barron Jacob was born on August 1st, 2017, weighing 5 pounds, 13 ounces, and measuring 16 inches long. He is the answer to their prayers, and they waited for his birth with joyful expectation. During his two short months here on Earth he touched the lives of many people and was loved deeply by his family and friends. Barron experienced being held by his mommy and daddy, hugs and kisses from his family, and hearing all about the scores of the recent Alabama Crimson Tide football games, in between an uncountable number of “I love yous.” Barron is deeply loved by his mommy and daddy, his grandparents, his great-grandparents, his aunts and uncles, his cousins, and many others. Barron will always be his parents’ precious miracle and they will hold him again in heaven one day. Your prayers have been deeply felt and appreciated. Because He lives, we can only imagine the glory that is in store for those who hope in the Lord. (Isaiah 40:31)
