For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.William Penn

This memorial website was created to remember our baby son and little brother, Daniel Alexander Perez who was born in Miami, Florida on May 31, 2007.  Daniel passed away on October 4, 2007 during his daytime nap at 4 months of age.  The cause of death is Anoxic/Hypoxic Encephalopathy and Bronchopneumonia due to Infantile Reflux and Aspiration While Sleeping.  He was 16 lbs, 6 ounces and was 25 1/4 inches long. He was very much loved and will live forever in our memories and hearts.




A thousand tears or more these eyes have cried
and a thousand more lay in wait -
I am bathed with them
and yet my heart is still broken,
and all that is within me aches
with the loss of you, the wanting of you.

There is never a time for this that is right-
never a way that can prepare the heart
for this reft -you have passed through
my arms too soon, like sand flowing through fingers
I could not hold you here, though
I would try.

I know that your spirit flies free
and in the quiet depths of my heart, I can see you still
in the rhythm of the waves upon the shore
in the crisp fall air that fills my chest,
in the iridescent gleam of each dragonfly
skimming the surface between heaven and earth.

On your baby sister's Baptism Day... Dragonfly signs are still strong and clear!

Seeing your dragonfly inside our very own house on your baby sister’s baptism day was so special and thoughtful, sweet Daniel, you are the best!! Mommy adores you!!

Daniel’s perfect timing as always.  After our daughter’s baptism celebration at home as soon as everyone had gone home and it was night fall, my husband was in and out while storing the tables and chairs into the house, when suddenly a dragonfly sneaked through the front door of the house and came inside. My oldest and I were starring at it as it fluttered by us.  Then as I was thinking that it will die if it stayed in the house, it started to flutter around our backyard’s french doors and I asked my husband to open the door to see if it would leave, and  so we said, goodbye, as it left.  I thanked Daniel so much! He knew just how much I had been thinking of him during such a special day. I hate that we never got to baptize Daniel and this was on my mind all day long.


Daniel, my sweet baby boy, thank you for all of your amazing dragonfly signs!


Please read more about Daniel dragonfly signs, there are so many to be grateful for!

Happy heavenly 2nd Birthday, to my sweet beautiful angel!                                                                            













Keep my memory with you, For memories never die; I will be there with you,
When you look across the sky.
I will be there in the clouds,
In the birds that fill the air;
In the beauty of a fragrant rose,
You will find my memory there.
You will feel me in the tenderness, Of a tiny baby's touch;
You will hear me if you listen, In the twilight's gentle hush.

When your hearts are heavy,
And you feel that you are alone;
Just reach down deep inside of you,
For your heart is now my home. I will ALWAYS be with you,
I will never go away;
For I will live on in your hearts, Forever and a day.

So many of us saw that dragonfly fly by while everyone was around grandma for all those pictures that were taken during that special moment. We miss you and your cousin, Rey!  I love you little one, you’re my special angel!

To Daniel from your Mommy,


Thank you for the wonderful 4 months you gave me. You were such an amazing good little baby.  We both had a very special bonding with one another. I'll never forget that special moment we shared and all the beautiful feelings I had as I looked at you and how these beautiful words just seemed to flow out from me to you. I will

cherish you  forever!

The Water Bug Story

Down below the surface of a quiet pond lived a little colony of water bugs. They were a happy colony, living far away from the sun. For many months they were very busy, scurrying over the soft mud on the bottom of the pond. They did notice that every once in a while one of their colony seemed to lose interest in going about with its friends. Clinging to the stem of a pond lily, it gradually moved out of sight and was seen no more.

"Look!" said one of the water bugs to another, "One of our colony is climbing up the lily stalk. Where do you think she's going?" Up, up, up it slowly went... Even as they watched, the water bug disappeared from sight. Its friends waited and waited but it didn't return...

"That's funny!" said one water bug to another... " Wasn't she happy here?" asked a second... "Where do you suppose she went?" wondered a third... No one had an answer. They were greatly puzzled.

Finally one of the water bugs gathered its friends together. "I have an idea. The next one of us who climbs up the lily stalk must promise to come back and tell us where he or she went and why." "We promise" they said solemnly.

One spring day not long after the very water bug who had suggested the plan found himself climbing up the lily stalk. Up, up, up he went. Before he knew what was happening, he had broken through the surface of the water and fallen into the broad and free lily pad above.

When he awoke, he looked about with surprise. He couldn't believe what he saw. A startling change had come over his old body. His movement revealed four silver wings and a long tail. Even as he struggled, he felt an impulse to move his wings... The warmth of the sun soon dried the moisture from his new body. He moved his wings again and suddenly found himself above the water.

He had become a dragonfly. Swooping and dipping in great curves, he flew through the air. He felt exhilarated in the new atmosphere.

By and by the new dragonfly landed happily on a lily pad to rest. Then it was that he chanced to look below to the bottom of the pond. Why, he was right above his old friends, the water bugs! There they were scurrying around, just as he had been doing some time before.

Then the dragonfly remembered the promise. without thinking, the dragonfly darted down. Suddenly he hit the surface of the water and bounced away. Now that he was a dragonfly, he could no longer go into the water...

"I can't return!" he said in dismay. "At least I tried. But I can't keep my promise. Even if I could go back, not one of the water bugs would know me in my new body. I guess I'll just have to wait until they become dragonflies too. Then they'll understand what has happened to me, and where I went."

And the dragonfly winged off happily into its wonderful new world of sun and air...

Dear God, please remember my loved one who has left the pond we live in...and remember me...
