Little Ivy was born with a host of serious health complications and spent only two of her 13 months of life in her family home.  Wishes & More was not able to grant a wish for this little angel; however, our Memorial funds were given to the family immediately after her passing.  We share the poignant words from her obituary as an additional tribute to her and to those who love her. “In her short life, Ivy left the footprint of a giant. She impacted and stole the hearts of everyone fortunate enough to care for her.  She defied the odds many times in expected outcomes and prognoses, providing the opportunity for her doctors to learn from her.  Despite her many challenges, she persevered and did the impossible every single day, earning the moniker of the Little Engine that Could!  It is said that ivy grows where other plants can’t – and that was Ivy; the fire in her soul did not match her earthly broken body and there were many times when things would look very grim and yet Ivy pulled through.  Her spirit, her blonde curls, her gentle smile were the epitome of the angel that she was and hid the ravages that her body possessed.  She brightened the room and the lives of those that she touched.  Her family exceeded the bounds of her biological family and became all who cared for and loved her.”  We ache with the family during their time of loss but hope that our financial gift will support them and serve them in memorializing their little girl.
