Shine Like Novah

Novah Zirkelbach was the happiest baby boy anyone ever knew. He was just 9 months old when he passed on June 3rd, 2013. He lit up the room with his bright smile and touched so many lives. Please Shine Like Novah, and pass this on.

June 3rd, 2013:
It was a normal day, he was happy, healthy, and smiling like always. He was getting tired so I put him in his car seat and put him in the truck so we could go home from my mom's house: I was gathering our things and put the4 girls in the truck and he had been sleeping for 5 minutes in the seat. Rylee (my oldest daughter) sat next to him and he suddenly woke up from his nap gasping for air. I ran over and took him out and handed him to my mom telling here to begin CPR because he couldn't breathe as I called 911. She did everything from checking his throat, patting his back, breathing her every last breath into him as his lips turned blue. We were all in a panic screaming to GOD, No, NO-! Ambulance came and took him away "“ when I arrived at the hospital every dr. and nurse in the hospital were working on him. My husband showed up 10 minutes later: When I came into his arms, I felt Novah's spirit leave. I knew he was gone. The doctors worked on Novah for over an hour. He didn't make it. God allowed Novah to join him in heaven that day. He did not take him from me: He just allowed it to happen.
