Sofia Genesis Castillo, 10 years old, passed away Saturday, September 5, 2020.
Sofia was a warrior, a fighter, she defied all odds; taking into consideration doctors only gave her an estimated life span of two years. She fought long and hard for her life and to continue to give us many wonderful memories. Her journey was not easy after her traumatic injury but never the less, she made the most out of each day. She was full of life and beautiful smiles and did not hesitate to be a loving, beautiful, attentive and alert little girl. Sofia has gained her wings and has left us with an immense pain but she also left our family with great memories that will be kept in our hearts forever. Sofia was cared for and loved by her family and siblings.
Preceded in death by her grandpa, Jesse that she most loved and adored as he did as well.
Survived by her mami, Maricela Castillo; daddy, Abimael Garcia ; big sister, Julissa A. Castillo; big brother, Damian X. Montalvo; and baby sister, Emma G. Garcia.
She will be truly missed. Rest in heaven my little angel, until we meet again. Long live Sofia Genesis Castillo.
