Ava Christina Shane Mueller was born Aug. 12, 2009. She weighed six pounds, eight ounces and measured 20 inches.

Although we had to say goodbye without ever saying hello, and she never got the chance to meet us, we love her deeply.

Matt and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our family and friends for your continued support. Ava would have been blessed to be a part of such a strong community. I know we are.

Thank you, Angie and Matt.
