Who knew that later on Kena would get<br> the surprise of her life when she found out she was expecting twin boys.<br> Mason Neal Clegg and Maddox Dean Clegg were born on July 7th 2019. With<br> two additional boys, Kena kept her love for pictures flowing, sharing<br> the life of herself and all three children to the world through photos,<br> all throughout each day, on all social media outlets.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>With a loving memory left to cherish, Kena Janaee leaves behind her<br> precious boys, Keiden Andre “Kebow”, Mason Neal “May May”,<br> Maddox Dean “Bugs”; her parents, Denna Clegg-Newton (Anthony) of<br> Benton, AR and Arnold “Lamont” Rose(Carla) of Dallas, TX; Four<br> sisters, Brittany Paxton, Marquisha Moss, Tiara Rose and Destinie Moss;<br> Three brothers, Jashun, Jamarion and MJ; Godparents, Stephen Booth and<br> Synthia Littleton-Simpson; Host of aunts, uncles and cousins.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p>Kena will truly be missed for her big warm smile, daily phone calls and<br> random FaceTimes, encouraging words, kind heart, loving spirit and<br> loyalty.
