Baby Stella was born on February 12, 2018 at twenty-two weeks and six days at 8:25 a.m. Our precious girl fought very hard and defied all the odds for five weeks. She enjoyed listening to her mommy and daddy read her daily bedtime stories and listening to her favorite lullabies. She liked to give her nurses a hard time by pulling at her cords. She was baptized in her catholic faith and was prayed for by many. Our Stella gained her angel wings while in the arms of her mommy and holding the hand of her daddy on March 19, 2018. She was so loved and will be greatly missed by all who’s heart she touched.
“There is no foot too small that cannot leave an imprint on the world”.

“You are my angel, my darling, my Star…and my love will find you, wherever you are.”
We would like to thank the NICU doctors and nurses at Rio Grande Regional Hospital in McAllen, Texas who cared for our sweet girl. You all are angels on earth. We would like to thank everyone who kept our beautiful princess in prayer.
The family has asked to wear white in honor of their angel.
