The funeral will be held in the chapel on Thursday, January 15th at 11:00 am with a brief visitation at 10:00am.

In lieu of flowers, Julie and Noah have requested that donations be made to one of the following charities that have meant so much to them.

  1. This is Melanie from March of Dimes. We also send the family aknowledgments when a donation is recieved. If that helps.

    We are all saddened by your loss.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I have been following your story since she was born, and I know how much she was loved by all. She is now at home in peace and no more hurt or sickness. She is in Jesus' arms, and I'm sure my grandfather who passed away a month ago will watch over her too.
    She is at home now with all the other babies who have gone too soon.
    Your family will stay in my prayers.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss, you are in my thoughts.

  4. I'm so sorry for you loss. Since I found your blog I have been praying for your family. The odd thing is last night during my prayers I felt it heavy on my heart to say a special prayer for Magdalena. I was very saddned to learn this morning of her passing. I will continue to pray for guidence and peace.

  5. My heart dropped into my stomach when I read about the passing of your sweet Magdalena. I have been following her story since a few weeks before her birth. I checked up on your blog at least once a day. I really do not know what to say, except that I am so very, very sorry. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you find comfort in God's arms until the day you reunite with your sweet daughter.

  6. I am so so sorry to hear about Magdalena and my heart is broken for you guys right now. It has been such a joy to watch her grow, and I know that you will cherish those memories forever. Your strength and honesty has been amazing to watch. I'm praying for God's peace to be with you both.

  7. I have been following Magdalena since birth. My sincere condolences on the loss of your beautiful baby girl. Thank you for sharing her life with all of us, she will be missed.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have no idea what you are experiencing. I have followed Magdalena 's life since she was born & have prayed for her hoping she would make it. I have a baby around the same age & my heart just breaks for you two & what you are going through. May God keep his arms around you during this very hard time.
    Kisses & hugs to heaven!!


I love to hear from you!
