Adayah Lyn Colon

Lyons: Born on September 16, 2017, at 12:45 PM, weighing 6 pounds, 8 ounces, and measuring 20 inches in length. Sadly, Adayah passed away on the same day as her birth.  She leaves her mother, Kirstyn Gay; 3 year old sister Amilyah Brantley; 12 year old brother Omariyan Colon; father, Matthew Colon; grandmother Lynn Steingraber; step-grandfather Ronald Brantley; grandfather Jackie Gay; great grandmother Rose Steingraber; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family.

"As you kicked me throughout the night, all day long, when you felt the comfort of a warm hand you would go crazy.  You hearing me sing to your sister holding you as we danced around the room.  Your sister kissing on you and saying 'mommy baby'! Your kicks got stronger.  It was inexplicable.  From the moment I found out I was expecting you, my first thought was 'oh I am in for it raising two girls'.  The thought of you, and your sister, fighting over stupid situations, sharing toys, who got what & who didn't get what, your first heartbeat, the meaning of me being your shoulder to cry on when you needed me, not to judge you, listen to you about everything, and most of all would be seeing you become your sister's best friend and protecting each other. From the moment I was told that you did not have a heartbeat, I had two weeks to show you the world.  My heart sank! When I first laid eyes on you I thought you were the most beautiful little girl I've laid eyes aside from when your sister was born. All I could do was think to myself how I had made two beautiful girls.  I may never know why you were taken from me.  But I will always remember everything about you. I promise I will never forget about you. I will remind myself about you and forget nothing. The feeling I got when I held you, rubbed my fingers up, and down, your face, your smooth skin, your dark hair.  I will always remember the touch of your fingers against mine.  You are going to leave me with unanswered questions that I will never be able to have answered. But from you watching from above, maybe you will answer them for me. From down here, to up there, I will continue my journey with your sister.  Maybe at the end of the journey we will all meet again.  From your kiss, to my touch,  you'll never be forgotten in any way. I will always love you and wish you had stayed. "
