4 months old
Gianna Grace was born in Ogden, Utah to Kelsey Afton Porter and Antonio Manuel Sanchez-Gonzales. Gianna was an only child. She lived with her parents in Utah and moved with them to California at 2 months old. During her life she was surrounded by great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends.
She would light up and give a smile starting day one. She was always looking around and exploring her surroundings. Her smiles soon turned to coos and then giggles and then full-on laugh attacks! She was such a happy baby and brought so much joy to her parents, family members and friends. She was adored and loved by many. Everyone who came to meet her usually didn't want to ever leave her. Sweet angel baby she was. She even would talk her baby talk loud and clear and conversate with you. Lord only knows what she was saying but it was fun to talk with her! With her big blue eyes, contagious smile and sweet little dimple she easily stole the hearts of many.
On the morning of December 5, 2023 we learned little Gianna grew wings to fly. Leaving behind all of her family and friends and joining heaven. Although her time with us all on earth was short. It was incredibly sweet and is going to be unimaginably missed. Her soul is strong, and we feel her watching over us as we grieve her loss. We can't wait for the day we are all united and get to see her again. Until then we say have fun in heaven sweet angel and try not to forget us! We love you so very much!
We would like to thank everyone for everything that has been involved with us and her. We appreciate all of you for your kindness, thoughtfulness, and help.
