Our sweet little angel Royce Jaiden Ward passed away Saturday July 7th, 2018 at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles surrounded by his loving family after a tragic accident that took him from this world too soon. He was born October 19, 2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah to parents Jaiden and Lindsie Ward. He had a beautiful smile with perfect eyes that only portrayed love. He loved to say “hiii” to everyone, dance to music and clasp his hands together during sacrament meetings. He was also very loving to his two dogs Sailo and Millie. In his short time on this earth he was able to travel to New Zealand, Idaho, Arizona and Colorado and spend multiple days in Disneyland.
After Royce’s death, the couple received well wishes and gifts in his honor. They decided to use those gifts and Lindsie’s passion for crafting jewelry to create a company called Rightly Royce. They now have weekly booths at the Provo farmers market where they sell their handmade jewelry. They donate 10% of their profits to the Children’s Hospital in California where Royce spent his last days. They have even started featuring other families that have suffered a similar loss on their website in order to spread hope and healing to others.
Jaiden and Lindsie Ward have a sense of purpose now in their life as they try to live out their son’s legacy. They have reminders of him all over their house and Lindsie wears a necklace with his name on it every day.
