So that he may take every burden away from your heart.Also remember all the great memories you had with maddy and know she is in great hands,and we will see her once again.So to tio mario&tia stella I'm so sorry I couldn't and can't do more to help.All I can say is "turn to christ and he'll help you through this tough time."

There are no words that anyone can say to comfort you,Mario and the boys. To say to remember the good times that you had with Maddy are just words. Just know that you have family and friends that will always be here for you, Mario and the boys. I had the pleasure of meeting Miss Maddy and I can honestly say that if there was ever an angel on earth, it was her. My heartfelt condolences are with your family and please know that whatever or whenever you need anything, Im just a phone call away. Hugs and love to all of you.

The first time I felt you inside of me I knew, That I loved you with all my heart, And as you did each day, each month My love for you only grew. The first time I saw you, I just couldn’t wait, To hold and kiss you, all over your face, Daddy was there so excited and proud, When he cut your cord, I thought he would faint. They were there from the start your Nanna and Gram, They just wouldn’t leave our side, They were there to shower you with love, Like only a grandmother can. The waiting room was full the moment they got word On that day that you came into our lives And we filled them again, while we prayed for the Lord But this time it's like no one has heard. Now the pain that we feel inside is the worst, but we treasure the short time that we had, Though many have loved you in your short little life I’m lucky cause I loved you first

Posted by Veronica Neaves Flores - San antonio, TX   March 14, 2011

Time you are not a friend to us
Our baby girl you took too soon
Leaving us without what could have been
No first day of school,
No sweet sixteen
Not even another ‘kissy kissy nite, nite’ to send us off to dream

We worried from day one
That to our precious Maddy someday harm might come
A bump, a bruise, or a band-aid maybe
Never a thought that we could actually lose our baby

Time enough did we not near get
That we did not give you the world is our regret
Time may come and time may go
But can time make us ever forget you…no

The chasm in our hearts and the emptiness of our souls
Are constant reminders
This is the space a certain little baby girl should go
Maddy, does this sound like anyone you know?

Our darling, our sweetheart, our Maddykins, our dear
We hurt so much because you are not here
When we hug your clothes and your scent fills the air
We question over and over, why
Why Maddy why did you have to go somewhere?

The need to have you near always makes us want to sleep
No sadness, no heartache, no pain, no emptiness,
Just you and us together in our dreams

If you can hear us, up there, in Heaven where you are
Just know that Momma loves you, Daddy treasures you, and we both miss you
And from our thoughts and from our hearts you are never ever far

Time is not a friend to us
Every day he makes us old
But he cannot take that which we hold
Our baby Maddy is now with God
Our special little angel and us
We will never ever be apart.

‘Who loves you Maddy?’…
Yes that’s right…
Momma loves you

‘Who loves you Maddy?’…
Yes that’s right…
Dada loves you

Maddy,
El tiempo que estuvieste entre nosotros los hiciste muy felizes Maddy tu no te fuiste..te quedaste entre nuestros corazones..Tus Abuelitos no te olvidaran y te siguen queriendo muncho..La biblia promete un futuro maravilloso (Hechos 24:15) Se los dice que va haber resurreccion . Bajo el Reino de Dios, todo el sufrimiento habra quedado en el olvido. Te extranamos Tus abuelitos Javier y Chela Castaneda.

Maddy,
You were sent here from up above, God gave us a blessing when he sent you. You made all of us smile and laugh and I know you affected all of us you opened up our hearts to love and cherish one another. When you were here you made us so happy and to see you laugh or smile or do the silly things you did we will never forget those moments! My family is so blessed that you were here with us. Thank you for loving us for sharing your smiles, laughter, and the sillyness with us. Now you are gone we hurt so much with pain and anger and ask why? But we know you are in heaven with our Lord. One day Maddy we shall meet again when that day comes we will be whole again!
Love Tia Irene & family

I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter Madelynn. All though I did not get to meet her, I know and hear from Vanessa that she was so precious. There are no words that can mend what you are feeling right now, I do believe, however, that prayers are powerful. We are praying for you. May God bring you comfort and peace that surpasses all understanding. God has much in store for you and I know that Madelynn is rejoicing with our Heavenly Father right now! She will be waiting with open arms for you, her daddy to lead you to our heavenly daddy. My codelences to you Mario and Stella, Mr. & Mrs. Castaneda, Vanessa & Jason, Frank and Faviola and Merisa... the entire family. May God Bless you and comfort you with patient endurance. God Bless...

Mario and Estella, as a parent, I can't begin to comprehend what the 2 of you must be going through, but I do believe in the power of prayer, and as you can see, there are numerous friends and family praying for peace and comfort.

What a beautiful little soul Maddy was. While her life was cut short, it's evident that she touched many. Those are the memories you need to recollect to help ease your pain as you move on. I also pray for Mathew and Mason as they continue their lives without their little princess. Continued prayers are being sent your way.

No words could ever give you comfort, when you loss a child,but know she is with the best. If you ever feel like you can't find your way or you hurt... just look up to heaven and she will be your guiding star. I prayed that God give me word of comfort for Mario and you. Here is something I read that I think Maddy is trying to say.
Sorry I didn't get to stay. To laugh and run and play. To be there by your side. I'm sorry that I had to die. God sent me down to be with you, to make your loving heart anew. To help you look up and see both God and little me. Mommy and daddy i wish I could of stay. Just like I heard you pray. I know you cried when you had to tell little me goodbye. God didn't take me cause he is mad. He didn't send me to make you sad but he gave us all a chance to love. Up here the pretty angels sing to me. The streets of gold is where I play. You will come here one day too, mommy and daddy when your journey is done, you will join me here. With each breeze you feel and see, brings love and a kiss from me. Know I am with the best. A part of your hearts came with me. I'm an angel now in heaven, so please don't cry for me. When you need me, look inside your heart, I promise to be there with you. For I will always be your precious child, as you will always be my mommy and daddy. I love u cousin and know that no one can ever take the bond we have with our children no matter how long God lends them to us.
