Amaya Marie Larson
Funeral services for Amaya Marie Larson, 10-month-old daughter of Dr. Christopher and Melissa Larson were held Friday, Nov. 2, 2012, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church with Pastor Jeff Whillock officiating. Burial was at Riverside, Aberdeen. Amaya died Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Faulkton Area Medical Center, Faulkton, SD, as a result of an accident.
Our beautiful little angel sent from Heaven brought such joy to our lives. Her smile lit up the room, and her big brown eyes stole our hearts. She adored her big brothers, her five-year-old brother Kalen and her three-year-old brother Talon. She was always excited to see Kalen and so overwhelmed with Talon’s loving touch.
She by far was mommy’s girl, but also completely in love with her daddy. She wanted Daddy to take her outside and only Mommy to tuck her in bed. Amaya loved sitting in her closet and touching her pretty clothes. She was Mommy’s little avid shopper, but not so much a traveler.
She loved the lake, sitting in the sand, splashing in the water, and riding in the boat. Amaya loved the farm with all the animals, tractors, and Honda rides. Amaya was saying so many new words every day. Her favorites were dada, hi, papa, pretty-pretty and bye-bye. She loved being sung to and snuggling in your arms. She did so many things before her time, maybe knowing she had only a short time with the ones she loved on this earth. She touched so many lives, and we will miss her every day.
A memorial has been established in the name of Amaya Marie Larson at Dacotah Bank.
