Serenity For Shinbee Yang

Our beloved Shinbee Shoua Choua Yang passed away at 9 AM on December 5th 2014. She was only two years old. Shinbee was the light of our lives and the sunshine to our cloudy days, she always had a smile on her face that could brighten anyone's day. She loved everything and everyone around her-even strangers. She had one of the biggest hearts a child could offer, she was kind, tender and patient, with that she has taught us all so much in so little time. Her purpose in life was to show us all to never let a day go by without loving one another.

What she only wanted most was to be surrounded by her Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, and all of her Aunts and Uncles, and so did they. When she was surrounded by loved ones, you can see her big black eyes twinkle, her cheeks pucker as high as the sky and her nose cringe. Her smile and laugh was so contagious, it would melt ones heart and can mend anyone's bad day.

Shinbee died of Meckel's Diverticulum, She was born with the unknown disease at birth. Meckel's Diverticulum  is a disease that affects a pouch to grow at the lower part of the intestines which soon causes it to burst and spread to the blood. Shinbee never showed any signs or symptoms of the terrible disease but rather kept strong for her Mom and Dad. Prior to her death, Nurses and Doctors misdiagnosed her with constipation and could only do so little. Unexpectedly her intestine burst causing it to spread bacteria throughout her body. Autopsy record showed that her intestine also was wrapped around her colon. This explains why Shinbee lately had a decrease in her bowl movements from three times a day to one. By the time shinbee was rushed to the ER, her heart already stopped beating and her eyes rolled back. Doctors tried resuscitating her for more than 1 hour. Her heart beat came back for only 1 minute but it was not enough to keep our little angel alive. Her little fragile body has already given up. 

Shinbee is now an angel watching from above. She is smiling down upon her family. Today and so forth- her family will remember not her death but the memories of what Shinbee has given. 

We can now say she is free of pain. She is dancing and singing in heaven like she always did before. 

We ask for your donation to help with medical bills and funeral expenses, as little as you can to help her family during this hard time.

Thank You in advance-

Shinbee and the Yang Family
