Here is the entirety of Simone's message

How do a Mother & Father begin to express the pain that is felt throughout every cell of their body when the hopes & dreams you had for your newborn son are gone in an instant...

Our Son, Elijah Jedidiah Aguilera, was born and has passed into Eternity on July 8, 2024.

My heart physically hurts so deep I have no words but so many tears full of love. So so many tears.

Ivan and I are mourning for our son Elijah but we are also rejoicing for him, for we know exactly where he is, with our Lord and Savior, our Heavenly Father.

I'm rejoicing for Elijah but crying for this earthly pain that aches so deep. Every cell of my body wants and aches to hold him and have him home with us. My body aches to be without him. My arms are empty. My heart hurts. My body has every sign of my son but I can't feel him anymore. Who do I hold and comfort now and cuddle to sleep.
My arms feel so empty.

I love and trust God with everything that I am. Everyone who knows me knows the love I have for our Savior and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will never question His Ways or His Will.

God is good. God is good. God is so so good.

I love you Lord and I Trust you. Give me your strength in this time because I am so weak I can't bare to stand. Help us Lord and strengthen us. We need Gods Strength more than ever.

Please pray for my heart, my husbands heart and the heart of our children, Ivan & Florentina.

We need a moment to be alone with God, and we will soon have an announcement for our sweet Sons funeral.

Mommy loves you my sweet little Elijah. Sleep with the Heavenly Angels my sweet boy.
