On November 28, 2013, at London Health Sciences Centre, our little angel entered into the arms of our Lord and Saviour at the age of 22 months.
Amaraiya will live forever in the hearts of those who love her, parents Craig and Debra David and big brother Jayden all of Kitchener, grandparents Ralph and Margaret David of Los Angeles and Gerard and Nora Alweyn and great-grandmother Tessie all of India, uncles and aunts, Fabian David (Shweta Singh), Michelle (Ian) Sandys, Jennifer (Desmond) Sandys, Conway (Lean) Alweyn as well as her godparents, aunt and uncle Sabrina (Don) Paynter and cousins Trevor (Brinell) Coelho. Amaraiya is also survived by several other cousins and relatives.
Amaraiya journeyed with her mother and grandmother through their own cancer treatments that they have recently completed. She always brought joy to patients as she accompanied her mother to treatments. Amaraiya was diagnosed with leukemia last month and passed away due to an infection she contracted during her treatment. She fought valiantly even when all the odds were stacked against her. She is the angel who brought strength to her mother and grandmother to overcome their illnesses.
