Alexis Jade Redd

Six years ago today an angel was born,
No one knew our hearts would be so torn,

Alexis Jade had problems with her heart,
It wasn’t fair she didn’t get a good start,

Her big, beautiful, touching eyes,
Reached us all so deep inside,

She had her daddy’s nose no doubt,
She was a strong little fighter inside and out,

In her mommy’s arms she loved to be,
Maria took care of Alexis so tenderly,

God looked down and knew she was the one,
He wanted her to be with him and His will was done,

Now she’s in heaven in eternal bliss,
There won’t be a day that we won’t miss,

In heaven our very own guardian angel sits,
Here on earth we have her sister, in the family Jaden fits.

We miss you Alexis Jade,
Happy Birthday, six years today.

(Alexis Jade Redd - 3/5/02 - 5/18/02

Alexis, was diagnosed with an Interrupted Aortic Arch, Ventricular Septal Defect, and Truncus Arteriosis....very big words for such a small heart. After one surgery and 7 weeks in NICU and PICU, we finally brought our precious baby home on April 24, 2002. God blessed us with 3 1/2 weeks at home with Alexis before He called upon her on May 18, 2002.

Alexis, we miss your big beautiful eyes and your tiny hands. You touched our hearts and miss you more than words can ever express. Our tears of joy turned into tears of grief all too soon. We rejoice in the day that the Lord will reunite us with you, our precious angel.

All our love,
Mommy and Daddy
(Maria Claudia and Kevin))

Kevin & Cha Cha - we appreciate all of your support while our angel was in the NICU, and your continued support through our journey with Kouper. You are great friends. We'll never forget our little angel, Alexis. Love ya, Kristin & Phillip
