Laughing, Weeping, Living

Life happens. You laugh about it or cry about it, sometimes both.

Agnes Will Live in Our Hearts

on January 27, 2014

Here is the official obituary notice that ran in the local paper.

100_1955Agnes Maria Schwager (2013 – 2014)
Our precious angel, Baby Agnes, passed away in the loving arms of her parents, on January 24, at Akron Children’s Hospital. Baby Agnes was born on June 17, 2013 to her parents Jeremy and Judith Schwager. In her short life, Agnes struggled with chronic health problems and was an inspiration to many people. Her support network reached around the globe and was a source of strength to her and her family. Agnes inspired many people to turn to God and pray on her behalf. We will always remember her beautiful smile.
She will be forever missed by her parents, Jeremy and Judith; and brother, Stephen, all of Cuyahoga Falls; grandparents, Michael and Kathy Schwager of California and Tim and Donna Kniss of Cuyahoga Falls; aunt, Sarah Kniss and uncle, David Schwager; cousin, Isabel Schwager; as well as many other family members and friends.
The family would like to offer their sincerest thanks to everyone at Akron Children’s for the compassionate and loving care given to Baby Agnes and family.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday, from 5 to 8 p.m., at the Anthony Funeral Home KUCKO-ANTHONY-KERTESZ CHAPEL, 1990 S. Main St. in Akron. A funeral liturgy will take place on Thursday, at 11 a.m., at the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church, 1866 Brown St., Akron. Memorial contributions may be made to the Palliative Care Unit of Akron, Children’s Hospital, 1 Perkins Square, Akron, OH 44308.
[As an additional note, I would especially like to commend the Palliative Care department at Akron Children’s Hospital. If you feel at all called to make a donation in Agnes’ memory, they are beyond worthy of receiving such a gift. Jeremy and I will never, ever forget the compassion and concern they showed to our family, at the end of Agnes’ life and throughout her entire life.]

    My heart broke reading this. I know you don’t know me, but I have been following your blog and the story of Agnes. I am so sorry…I can’t even imagine what you are feeling and going through as a family. You are in my prayers.

    The angel wings sleeper put the tears over the rim. I don’t know you except I prayed for comfort for you over the weekend. A friend posted your story and I was drawn into Agnes’ besutiful life. May God give you peace during this time. May the Heavenly angels take Agnes on a grand tour of our hope for eternity!

    I stopped by ages ago after seeing your story on Facebook and then came by today, just randomly, because I suddenly remembered your little Agnes. I’m so sorry for the loss of your beautiful girl.
