Alexa Nevaeh Sterner, newborn daughter of David Sterner and Tracey Sinnott, passed away Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2006, at the Beebe Medical Center in Lewes.

“A person is a person, no matter how small. Unto us a child is born, a special child for a special reason. We don’t pretend to understand, only to accept and to love. But, love goes on forever. Our joys will be greater, our love deeper, our lives fuller because we shared her moment. Some people only dream of angels, we held one in our arms. What we remember lives on. Our dreams are sure gonna miss her.

“We are sad to announce the short life of our baby girl Alexa. She came and went in an instant on Dec. 13, taking with her a lifetime of hopes and dreams we had for her. We will hold her in our hearts forever.”

Along with her parents, she is survived by her maternal grandmother, Michelle Hayes; maternal great-grandparents, Marietta and Robert Giles; paternal great-grandmother, Sylvia Powers; and several loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

A memorial service was scheduled foe Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2006, at the Long Neck United Methodist Church, Long Neck Rd., Millsboro. Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in her memory to the Arrianna Rose Foundation, 133 Summit Ave, Willow Grove, PA. 19090.
