Miriam Lica Vences was born on July 16th 2004. She left this world on October 25th 2013 at 9 years old.
This Viejo Elementary student had an unknown birth defect in her colon.
"Miriam went to the hospital Thursday evening and was diagnosed with a burst appendix and went in for surgery Friday morning," Miriam's GoFundMe memorial site says. "When they started surgery they realized that she had this rare birth defect and her little heart was too weak to handle the surgery. She died Friday afternoon."
She taught us a lot at her young age such as how to love her. She was our strength, our Rock. She taught us how to express ourselves. She was unique.
Her mother, Maria Vences, and her sister, Arina Lica Vences, will always keep her in their hearts.
