Zaydan Elijah Johnson                            

Wrens, GA  –              Zaydan Elijah Johnson, 2, precious son of Selean Diane Johnson and Lavar Beard, went to be with Jesus due to injuries sustained in a house fire Friday morning, April 26, 2019. Funeral services to celebrate his life will be held in the James Funeral Home Chapel at 3:00 P.M., Friday afternoon, May 3, 2019 with Rev. Dewain French officiating and Rev. Kara Pringle presiding.  Zaydan will be interred with his Nana following the services in the Mt. Moriah Cemetery.  

The joy of his mother and “Nana”, Zaydan was outgoing, friendly to all, and loving. He was all “boy” and had a dose of rambunctious, mischievous behavior. A beautiful child, inside and out, he was beloved by everyone who met him.

 Zaydan was joined in death with his Nana, Deborah Diane Kendrick Johnson. Those left to cherish his memory also include his three sisters, Zykeria Johnson, Anyia Johnson and Kierra Johnson; great aunts, cousins, and many, many friends.  

The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 6:00 – 8:00 P.M. Thursday evening, May 2, 2019.

Because of the sudden, tragic circumstances of their loss, the family respectfully requests that memorial contributions be made directly to James Funeral Home, P.O. Box 588, Wrens GA 30833.


Don’t think of him as gone away—
His journey’s just begun.
Life hold so many facets—
This earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
From the sorrows and the fears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away.
And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost—
And he was loved so much.
