On the 26th day of June, my little girl
Mikaela Hope Rangel, earned her angel wings and was welcomed by the arms of our Heavenly Father. She lived a short 4 years due to many illnesses, yet those 4 years she possessed strength, an abundance amount of happiness, with a pinch of spunky attitude, and the ability to overcome incredible odds in physical challenges. Those blessed by her presence were led by her courage to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create long, lasting memories. She had a love for music and she loved bright happy colors. Her smile was full of bright silent laughter with the ability to grab anyone's attention and fall absolutely in love with her. Mikaela's passing is a way to be reminded in celebrating her life. Although we will all miss her dearly, she will always and forever be in our hearts. I love you Mikaela, I will see you later! Love Always, Mommy
Dear Pebbles - I love you and miss you very much. There is not one day that passes by that I don't think about you. Now that you are in peace, resting in Baby Heaven, playing in the garden of happiness, it makes me happy. Since the day you were born, you brought smiles to the whole world. Now, that you have gone to Heaven, our family still and always will remember your loving ways. When you were born on October 24, 2008, I remember seeing your beautiful feet. Then I remembered crying so much because I knew that pain and struggles that you were going to have to face in this world. God I miss you, I really do. I am very proud of you Pebbles because doctors only gave us six months and 4 ½ years later, you proved them wrong. You are a fighter and you make me so proud. I love you Pebbles. Rest in peace Te amo baby Pebbles. Love Always, Your Daddy
My sister was a fighter and a happy girl.
The best thing about my sister was watching movies and telling stories. When I went to see my sister in the hospital, I prayed that she would get better. But the next day, I cried and wished that she had never passed. God took a beautiful child, a child that no one will ever forget. When my dad told me that Pebbles went to Heaven, I was crying and hoped that God never took her away. I don't know how to let her go. But somehow, I have to let go. It feels like a part of my life is gone, I will never get back. Now I am at war with myself. Every night I used to pray that I would find my sister and finally I did on the open road. We had nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired any more except to make our life into a work of art. Condolences may be offered at www.surprisefuneralcare.com (623)546-8002
