Sarah Lydia "Junior" VELEZ

Citizens Cemetery
Coconino County,

To my beloved daughter. We'll always remember the time God gave you to us. Your mom nicknamed you Junior and it stuck. I would tell your mom you are a girl and I will never forget driving home when the name Sarah came to me in a song.
I will always remember when your mom told me you were coming. Your mom has dinner ready for us everyday and on this day we were saying how good the food is! Mom, "Good food, " I said "Ah ha mom the vegetables are good for you." I said "Ah ha!" Mom, "and the baby too." I was so happy I hugged your mom and we rejoiced!
The doctor said you were a boy, I said what? I looked and showed the doctor you are a girl.
Our cousin Angie said in a dream that you were a girl. I also had a dream saying my first two children would be girls. Your grandfather Jose Samuel Velez and Diana first child was also a girl. The name Junior stuck, your mother and I would laugh, the only girl named Junior. I'm sure we would have shortened it to "June".
Right before you were born your mother and I said what if you're a boy? Name? I said "Withgod" would be your name. With God is where you are. Love, Mom and Dad.
