There are no words that can come close to describing the pain a parent and family feels after losing a child. On May 30, 2017 Audyn Deja Barajas unexpectedly passed away, leaving all of our hearts in pieces. Audyn was born December 30, 2011. Born perfect in our eyes, Audyn had a rare condition called Optic Nerve Hypoplasia. This condition caused many developmental delays and the need for around the clock care, not to mention many many specialist visits. At 20 years old Danyelle not only took on the roll of Mother to Audyn, she took on the roll of a special needs care giver. Danyelle's life revolved around her son Audyn, their love and special connection was undeniable. Being Audyn's main care giver Danyelle was limited on her work schedule, only working the hours she could waitressing. This means for the time being she is out of work while she copes with her tragic loss. Now more than ever our friend/cousin/niece/ what have you, needs our love and support. There is no denying Audyn's soul was special, he inspired us all and taught us to appreciate the little things. He had the most perfect smile, a contagious laugh and a real love for music. He was a true warrior and will be so missed.
We ask you please send positive vibes, prayers and donations if you are able. Audyn is to be cremated with a memorial service being held Wednesday June 7, 2017.
Danyelle and Albert wish to plant a red wood tree in California in memory of Audyn. Donations will help with memorial details as well as help the family while they cope with their loss.
