My Story

Javier, Javi to everyone and Widgey Woo to his mom, has a kind heart, beautiful smile and a personality that fills a room. What makes him the happiest - baseball, his older brother Diego and his stuffed friends monk-monk (monkey) and hippo. God walked with Javi during his time with us, marking him as special and heaven-bound. A calm and knowing soul, Javi made it through chemo, a bone marrow transplant (brother), and liver transplant (Uncle Mark), giving us more time than God required of him to help us prepare for his departure on July 31, 2009, at the age of four. We love you so my Widgey Woo and know that you await us in heaven where you watch over the other little ones who fight the good fight. Thank you baby.
