Landon Jax Swartz passed away January 8, 2013 with his family close and with his parents touch. Landon was born March 31, 2011. His life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. In his short 21 months of life, he spread his infectious smile, showed us the true strength of his indomitable spirit, and his immense love for all his family and friends. Landon loved to dance and loved his cars, animals, and most of all playing with his older brother Logan. His dynamic personality and sweet embrace left footprints in the hearts of everyone he met. He is dearly remembered and missed by his mother and father, Rudi Rivera and Timothy Swartz; and his older brother Logan. He also touched the lives of his loving grandparents Donato and Jeron Ricci, Lazaro Rivera and Sue Burnham. He also holds the hearts of his aunts and uncles: Jason and Lynn Rashid, Chris, Jonathan, and Steven Ricci, Josh and Ashley Panetti, Jennifer Swartz and Christi Goss. His cousins, Aiden, Ian, Cody, Katlyn, and Nicole will forever hold his memory in their heart. His extended family who shared in his beautiful life include his Godmother Jessica Ratcliffe; his Aunt Jeanna Megaloudis, Samara and Brian McMillen, and Zoilin Blanco. Landon's also extended his heart to his loving step-father, Daniel Dotson; his grandparents Sonia and Russell; and Uncle Chris. As painful as it is for us, with Landon's passing we remind others that his life is one to be celebrated. Although we will miss him every day, he will forever remain in our hearts.
