Angel Mercydez

Our dear friend, Mercydez Haws, passed away this morning. She was such a beautiful spirit and her parents have been such an example of faith to us. I first met Ashley at a lunch for the parents of children in the NICU at Primary's. I remember the first meeting, finding out that they lived in Springville and that both children were born with heart defects and variations of clefts. Ashley was so upbeat and positive about life, even though Mercydez's challenges were far greater than Nathan's. Mercydez was also a g-tube/nissen baby like Nathan and it was so nice to be able to get advice/ swap reports of how to deal with a feeding pump and all of its quirks.

The world lost one of its most valiant spirits this morning. We mourn her loss, but know that she was welcomed without hesitation to her Heavenly Father's arms. She will be missed greatly.

We love you Nic, Ashley, and Mercydez!
