Yesterday the Lord called home a piece of my family’s heart, Marlowe. It’s hard to believe that our little angel, our fighter from day one, our son “Marlito” has unfortunately died and is no longer here with us. Marlo, the joy she brought us daily, with that smile, and this energy was like heaven on earth. You will always be in our hearts. We will always remember you. We didn’t get a chance to hear your first words (It would be in Spanish too). We didn’t see you running with your brothers and sister, ran with them with your eyes daily. We know that everything we do hereafter will be with you. Every step we take will be with us. Every time we have a bad day, we will think about your smile. You already miss your girlfriend and will love you forever. Rest in peace with our sweet baby. You have won your wings
