Ellianna Esamae Wirtz was born still and into the arms of her Creator on the 9th of August 2022 at 2:00 AM. She weighed 4lbs 2 oz, was 18 ½ inches long, and was absolutely perfect. She will be eternally beautiful. Her precious life was the answer to years and years of prayer. Ella was the long-awaited daughter of Chanda and Levi Wirtz and the highly anticipated little sister of Sterling, Callan, and Emmeric of Manhattan, MT. And even though her worldly time was brief; she made a vast impact on those that love her. They will hold her in their hearts until they can embrace her in heaven.
With her passing we also deeply grieve the loss of our hopes and dreams for ourselves with her, the future memories we would have had with her, and the things we would have watched her accomplish as she grew. We will always be longing for her, wondering what would have filled her eyes with curiosity and her heart with joy. To us her loss is immeasurable, but so is the love she left behind.
Ellianna, you are not just a star in the sky, but the whole sky in a single star and we miss you so much precious angel.
A Tribute From Mommy ~
You danced to the beat of my heart and kicked to the sound of daddy's voice and wiggled around your brothers’ kisses as you awaited earth, as we awaited you through a beautiful birth. The joy and love came from above, just not lasting long enough. But, before you came and before we knew you grew wings, so precious, you were made for heavenly things. Your life took place without a finger's embrace; you were like the ripples I blew as I labored to meet you. Born still and yet still born, eternally missed. Our hearts are shattered and tell the tale of how much you mattered. They cry out for you-dancing among the stars now-we really needed you too. And when you flew back to the Creator, you took a piece of us with you leaving a depression that none of us knew. Our prayers and dreams taken back to the sky, the smell of your soft skin and the sound of your silent voice; you were gone before we even got to say goodbye. Your memory will be woven through all our remaining days, forever a part of us and here to stay. © Chanda Wirtz, written on her due date 8/15/22.
