“An Angel in Disguise”
On July 21, 2008, Miss Raniya Zy’Nea Wright entered into this world, as the daughter of Ms. Ashley Wright and Mr. Jermaine Van Dyke. A cherished jewel, and loving child, she was a fifth grader at Forest Hills Elementary School. She was an athlete and played basketball for the Recreational Center. She exercised what she knew to be her faith, and attended the Aimwell Presbyterian Church with her family. While attending, Raniya served as a junior usher, and loved to praise God in her own way. Raniya was loved by her family, and was just a lovable child. Soft spoken in demeanor, radiant in her ways, and continuing to display affection at all times, Raniya’s favorite words to her family were, “I Love You.”
On Wednesday, March 27, 2019 while in MUSC, the angel that was loaned for just a little while, was called back home to be with her heavenly Father. She has left a void that can never be filled, but we shall forever honor her life and cherish her love shown.
