"Gianna can fly" - my big brother said to my little brothers.

It was a warmer day than usual for October, but Mom & Dad had to take me to CHOP because I had an unusually low temperature and everyone at Bayada and CHOP did everything they could to keep me healthy. I left my mom and dad's arms in the afternoon on All Saints Day, and of course I had to be a little reluctant to leave so we could have a proper goodbye. I loved how all my brothers were there. All my Aunts and Uncles sang songs to me. My grandmothers lead the prayers and everyone was there with me as I entered heaven as a true angel. All of my family wanted to hold me, and shower me with lots of love as I became an angel. I received so much love. I was wrapped in a pretty pink warm blankets. I heard my mom and dad's voices... you can't mistake my Dad's voice...its soo masculine with a deep tone. Mom told me she loved taking care of me! I had the best team of nurses and doctors on earth.
My brothers said goodbye to me and stayed with me, mom & dad, all day. They gave me lots of kisses, and sang me a song. I have three of them, we all put paint on our hands and put our hands together on a canvas. And soon after, I went home to heaven.
Before I was born, I was in my mommy's tummy and on Nov 1, 2007 my parents were both at CHOP when the doctors told them I was to be an Aicardi Angel .
3 years on earth with endless support, care, & Love, I told my parents and brothers that I am going to be an Angel in heaven. My mom & dad told me that I am came to them peacefully and now I am leaving them peacefully. I am always with my family, with Love.

The family that God chose for you in your short time on earth was truly amazing, Gianna. You were loved with everything they had to give. I know you enter your happiness in Heaven with understanding of how many hearts you touched. You and your family are an inspiration to unconditional love. Linda Solorio

Ann Marie and Family,
There are no words I have that can make you feel better or express how I feel. I am sorry and I know you will be comforted with the warmth of Gods sunshine and knowing she will be free from all her limitations she had on earth. She is beautiful! If there is anything you need please do not hesitate to ask.

You were placed with the perfect family here on earth. AnnMarie you were the truest example of living life to its fullest with your dedication and devotion to Gianna. My heart aches for all of you in your loss. How very appropriate that she left this earth on All Saint's Day. Much Love,

Even though I did not get to see you but a few times since I left CCH, I have always held you and your precious daughter in my thoughts and prayers. I can see her running and laughing in heaven, dancing with the angels, and sitting on Jesus' lap. You are such a strong woman, please remember to let others provide you with a shoulder to lean on for a while. She went to heaven on All Saints Day...all in God's plan for her. My deepest sympathies to your family...Love, Donna Rea

Ann Marie and Dana,
My heart is heavy for you right now. Gianna was special. God sent her here for a reason and now that the reason is over he took her back to his graces. I know she knew she was loved so much by everyone, evn those who never had a chance to meet her. She is in God's hands now and a much better place. We will all miss her. And I know you will all have a special place in your hearts for her.
She IS and angel of God now.

Anne Marie, Dana, Henry, Stephen, Brendan, and your entire family, words can't express how sorry I am for your loss. God couldn't have sent Gianna to a better family. There's no doubt that she always knew how much she was loved by all of you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you will find some comfort in knowing that others care and are praying for you. Love, Larisa LaBuda
