Obituary for Maximo Raphael Flores Fernández

Maximo Raphael  Flores Fernández
Maximo Raphael Flores Fernández, 6 months and 29 days, son of J. Marvin Flores and Lilia Flores Fernández, brother to Rodrigo, Damian and Eliza of Platte, SD, passed away Sunday, September 30, 2018 at Children’s Hospital of Omaha in Nebraska. Memorial Services are 2:00 P.M. Thursday, October 11, 2018 at Mount Funeral Home in Platte.

Máximo nos cambiaste la vida.
Fuiste un gran guerrero, peleaste cada batalla que la vida te
dio, nos enseñaste de valentía y amor.
Fue tan corto el tiempo: seis breves meses que se fueron en un
abrir y cerrar de ojos, miles de cosas que planeábamos para ti
se quedaron pendientes, tu primer diente, tu primera palabra,
tus primeros pasos, tu primer día de escuela, tu primera
novia… ¡oh nuestro pequeño ángel tantos sueños sin cumplir!
Sabemos que, aunque te dimos muchos, nos faltaron millones
de besos y abrazos más que algún día te daremos.
Hoy ya no sufres, nadie lastimara esas manos con agujas, ni
abrirán ese pechito de nuevo, no hay dolor donde tu estas.
El dolor nos lo dejas a nosotros, que, aunque nuestro corazón
se detuvo junto al tuyo tenemos que seguir aquí, cuidando a
tus hermanitos que tanto te aman y extrañan.
Algún día nos volveremos a encontrar pequeño y prometemos
que ese día no te soltaremos más.
Besos al cielo ángel nuestro.

Maximo, you changed our life.
Our big warrior that fought every battle for your life, you
taught us about courage and love.
Your time with us was so short, six brief months that went
away in a blink, thousands of things we planned for you that
are still pending, your first tooth, first word, first step, and first
day at school, your first girlfriend… Oh our sweet angel too
many dreams to fulfill!
We know we gave you so many, but there are still millions of
kisses and hugs that we will give you someday.
Today, there is no more suffering, nobody will hurt you with
IV’s, nobody will open your chest again, no more pain where
you are now.
The pain is ours now; our hearts stopped along with yours that
day, but we had to stay to take care of your brothers and sister
that love you so much and miss you so very much more.
One day we will meet you again and that day we promise we
will never let you go.
Kisses for you in heaven our sweet little angel.
