Emilee Hope Gonzales-Dean (July 30, 2019–August 14, 2019)

On the evening of August 14, 2019, while in her mother’s arms and her brothers at her side, Emilee Hope gracefully gained her wings and took her place in heaven amongst the angels.

At 15 days old Emilee passed away from complications of her lungs due to being born with Trisomy 18 or Edwards Syndrome. Born in Denver, CO at 3lbs 1oz, Little “Em” was a miracle, with a bright spirit, lighting up the room with her mere presence. So many were inspired by her courage and strength. She gave others hope, joy, love and peace. She left all in awe in her tiny doll clothes, her precious smile and bright eyes. She is survived by her mother Laura K Raymond, father Patrick Arthur Kentopp. Siblings Matthew Gonzales, Paul Dean and Keirah Dean.
