In Memory of Baby Zeke

Inez and Felipe have suffered a tragic loss. After five days of being born, Baby Zeke made his way to Heaven. We were able to meet, touch, and hold our precious Zeke; we thank God for that tremendously. It is with heavy heart that as soon as we met him, we lost him. He became one of God's angels too soon. We love him regardless of how long he was here and he left a lasting impression on all of us. He has joined our other loved ones, who I'm sure received him with a warm embrace.

Inez and Felipe are truly suffering and trying not to question why this happened and believe that God makes no mistakes. Although it's what they believe, the grieving process is still extremely difficult. We also know that with time, love, and God's strength this storm will settle.

We pray that Inez and Felipe find true happiness once again. They both have such wonderful spirits and exude so much life and joy that we don't want them to get lost in this sorrow. They have said that they want to live life fuller and happier for Zeke. They want to make their lives more worth living for their baby boy who did not get this chance.

We, as friends and family, can make this happen. Lets help them once again see the beauty in this devastating mess. Help us send them somewhere beautiful, peaceful, tropical. Not because it will help erase the pain of losing their precious baby boy, but to take an opportunity to relax, grieve, and hopefully be at peace with what has happened.

Also, at this moment we are unaware of the medical cost this tragic event has put them in. We aspire to help elevate their pain by helping them financially. Imagine if we could pay their bill without them having to ever see it.

We love Inez and Felipe and we know that this memory can never be erased, nor do we ever want to forget Baby Zeke. It's an opportunity to show how much we love them, support them, and believe that Zeke is still with us in spirit and their happiness will come again.
