Giana Marie Merrill

Our little angel Giana Marie Merrill was called to heaven on August 23, 2011. Although baby Giana didn’t get the chance to spend time with us, she will forever be in all the hearts of her family and friends.

Giana is being greeted in heaven by her great-grandfather, Richard J. Edgar Sr.; great-great-grandmothers, Gladys Laws and Blanche Stevens; and cousin, Carolyn Merrill. Giana is survived by her loving parents, Joe Merrill and Monica Mireles; grandparents, Lisa and John Mireles Jr., Jack Merrill and Debra Goins; great-grandparents, Norma Merrill, Karen Edgar, Rafaela Mireles and John Mireles Sr.; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

There will be a dedication service on September 30, 2011 at The Bread House Church, 1518 S. Washington Ave., Lansing, MI at 6:30 p.m. All are welcome.

You were born to be a wonderful mother, Monica, so please do not ever forget that fact. It breaks my heart to imagine the pain you are in right now, but the Monica that I know always overcomes the obstacles put in front of her no matter how challenging they may be. Give my love to Joe and please do not hesitate to turn to me for anything, because despite our differences over the years, I still love you like the close friend that you have always been and I will forever be here for you.

We love you dearly,
