Memorial held for Jayden Allen

ALABASTER, Ala. (WIAT) — Teachers and daycare workers who took care of Jayden Allen at Noah’s Park Day Care in Alabaster held a special memorial service for him Monday morning.

The rain and cold weather didn’t stop the small crowd from gathering outside the daycare around 7 this morning. They said prayers, told stories about Jayden, and offered each other words of comfort. Someone passed out blue balloons and at the end of the ceremony they released the balloons into the sky.

“He had the sweetest giggle. That’s what all his teachers remember the most about him,” Center Director Madeleine Mims said.
