A time to be born – the story of Jerrica Lynn Marshall, affectionately known to many as “Suga Baby” or “Princess” is the true meaning of what peace, love, joy and bravery would look like in a human form. She was born on December 29, 2016 in Little Rock, Arkansas to her beautiful mother, Kabrina S. Marshall of Rison.
A time to love – Jerrica enjoyed being rocked for hours by her granny, Tammy Wainwright of Rison. She loved to be in her mother’s arms while gazing up at her. She loved getting her hair and nails done by her godmother, Molly of Little Rock. She just loved to be pampered with body massages and head scratches.
On Wednesday, March 4, 2020, Jerrica heard the voice of the Lord and while responding to his call, her mother, Kabrina Marshall said while holding her in her arms “it is okay to answer to his call baby because my God is the only one who can save.”
