Arial Renea Charles was born in Dallas, Texas, on July 4, 2005, to LaCandal Lee and Robert Charles. At age 15, with the brightest future, she passed away unexpectedly on April 24, 2021, in Mesquite, Texas.
Affectionately regarded as “Arial Pooh” by her family and “Ari” by her friends, Arial was a student at Lancaster High School where she enjoyed Science and running track. Her goal was to graduate high school and go on to major in Criminal Justice at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
At an early age, Arial accepted and professed her hope in Christ. She was baptized at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Alfredore Todd.
Among many hobbies, Arial especially loved shopping and listening to R&B and Hip-Hop music. One of her favorite artists was Adele. She also enjoyed dancing, singing, and just being beautiful - inside and out. She will be fondly remembered for her happy, funny, and caring nature. Her beautiful spirit will be forever missed by all who knew and loved her.
Arial was preceded in death by her grandmother, Lena Sanchez, and grandfather, Boston Green. Those left to cherish precious memories include her parents, LaCandal Lee-Smith (Christopher) and Robert Charles (Celina); siblings - Lela Smith, Ayanna Smith, Zoey Charles, Christopher "CJ" Smith, Jr., Christian Smith, and Jacob Charles; grandmothers - Judy Lee, Cammie Smith, and Sandra Green; special friend and sister, Kennedy Warren; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
