Baby girl Zareyah Sealy's Funeral

Our beautiful radiant baby girl Zareyah Sealy came into this world with her twin brother 4 years ago.  Zareyah was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at 1.5 years old.  As hard as it has been to live with such news Zareyah was a fighter. She never let her disability hold her back.  Within the last 2 months she had a reacurring cough which escalated to her being hospitalised for 48 hours on the 2nd November 2017.  She was discharged on Saturday happy and smily again.  By Monday evening I took her back to the hospital and I expected to be in hospital like last week so she could have nebulisers during the night to help releive the coughing and help her to breath easier so she could settle and also could be supervised for her oxygen levels, heart rate etc.  It was just for peace of mind, me and Zareyah discussed going back to the hospital and agreed it wold be just for peace of mind.  There were no signs of critical or serious illness on the way to the hospital.  Just the continuous tight cough and we arrived at the hospital at 8:30pm.
However, by Monday at 9:45 pm she was pronouced dead at St.Georges Hospital.  I am in total shock! She was sitting in my arms with the nurse giving her the nebuliser when she left me and went to another place.  The nurses and doctors immediatly started CPR and continued for an hour.  I asked them not to stop, they didnt stop and continued for another 5-10 minutes.  Dispite there efforts Zareyahs pulse never returned.  All I could do was hold her and felt completly useless for my limp baby lying in my arms.  She left so sudden.

Zareyah meant the world to me, her twin brother and her family. She always had the most beautiful smile.  She lived up to her name meaning: Queen of radiance and sunshine.  No doubt she is a rising sunlight in another place.  And altough her sun has set here, she has left us warm, beautiful and joyful memories of her.  I love everything about my daughter. She was everything to me.

I have had many friends and family sending there condolences, thank you, many have asked to help in some way, thank you in advance for you help to raise money towards giving Zareyah a beautiful ceremony.
