Stephanie F. of NJ

"We are friends of April and we just wanted to send our love and prayers to you and your special little girl. I wrote a poem for her................. !!!!!!!DEJA!!!!!! You don't know us and we will probably never meet But we have a mutual friend and one day we'll sit at His feet. You haven't been in this world for very long. Yet you have dealt with more than many. You are very strong. You will never ever be alone because there are so many people who care. Mommy and your sister and so many more that are there. But there's someone bigger that will always hold your hand. Maybe at your age you might not understand. He owns the cattle and a thousand hills. He's King and Kings, He's the one who says, "BE STILL." He knows everything about you and has a very special plan. We may not see it yet, through the eyes of man. But know that everything you must endure is for a reason. He promises to care for you and never leave, not even for a season. We love you Deja with a God sent love. Without even knowing you, it must have been sent from up above. When you get scared or when there is some pain. Just hold onto your mommy and remember His name. Jesus is there with an outstretched hand. Saying, "Deja, I'm here and your pain, I understand." GOD BLESS YOU DEJA and we will all be praying. For a miracle from the ONE who's love is never swaying. Love: The Fortuna Family"

Debbie K. of AZ

"I liked your website and especially all of your pictures! What cuties you and your sisters are :) I heard about you from my sister Meredith and have been saying prayers for you and your family for a while. Ya know, I wondered why you got sick and even thought that it was really unfair. But then after Meredith told me about your website and I looked through it all, I felt really different. Especially when I saw your pictures. At first glance you look just like a regular cute little girl, but if you take a second look you can see that you're really an Angel in training. Yep, I could tell especially in your princess dress. That one is a dead give away that you are for sure an Angel(in training). I bet your're gonna be really good at being one and will be a big help to your momma, sisters and grandparents once you get to heaven. I do hope that while you are still in training down here on earth that you enjoy every minute of it. Angel training can be hard but then It gets really easy and fun . . . so I've heard. Anyway Angel girl :) thank you for sharing about your life. I think its very important. Oh yeah, and tell your mom she's doing a great job helping you with your training and let her know that she and your family will be ok. Ya know I also heard that Angel training can be pretty tough for moms and families to. But again, I think you might already know that it's gonna be ok because they are gonna have the best Angel in heaven looking out for them."

She taught me to enjoy life, love like I'm not afraid, dance like no one is around and sing like nobody is listening. Over the past few months, I realized that I still fear. I have gotten over the fear of the lake, thank you for sharing that with me, but I find myself afraid to take chances. I pray I fulfill the life long purpose of meeting your wonderful family. I found an awesome and strong woman in your Mommy. I can learn from her Deja, Thank you for bringing us together. Rest sweetheart and do not fear for the kingdom of heaven is yours.

"Deja, I only met you once, at the car wash on Deja Day. I have heard a lot about you and your special mom. I was also the teacher for your sister Olivia at Sunday School two days ago at church. My prayer for you today, Deja, is that you would see Jesus clearly today. That God would surround you with his deep love and keep you safe from pain. I pray for your mom that she would know God's peace in a special way today, and that she would have a vision of you held safely in God's arms."


Holly B. of AZ

"Dear Angela, Deja and family,
My family(3 boys and hubby, David) and I have been truly blessed to have gotten to know you all through Margaret and Epic Christian Church. Deja's story has helped me to see my own children through God's eyes and to appreciate them as gifts from God. I also see God living in you, Angela, as you go through this incredibly difficult time of suffering with your daughter. I hope these verses will bring you comfort...2Corinthians 12:8&9'Three times I begged the Lord to take it away.'(a thorn in Paul's flesh) 'Each time he said, "My gracious favor is all you need. My power works best in your weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may work through me.'
The fact that God's power is displayed in our weakness, should give us courage and hope. As we recognize our limitations, we will depend on God more for our effectiveness rather than on our own energy and effort. Our limitations not only help develop our Christian character, but also deepen our worship, because in admitting them, we affirm God's strength. I know that you could not be doing all that you do each day with your precious child without the help and grace of God. He sees every tear that you wipe away, every hair strand that you lovingly brush from her face, every labored breath that you hover and listen over. All these things you do in love are for the glory of God and He sees all. You and Deja will receive your just rewards some day. Take heart and know that there are many in prayer for you and yours. Love In Christ, Holly"

I must say -- although I don't know you personally -- I am so glad that I had a chance to know of you and your story. You are truly an angel and I know that you have so many wonderful things to look forward to when you are in heaven with Jesus. Your mommy and your sisters are so blessed that they will have such a beautiful little angel to watch over them for their entire lives. Tell your mommy and your sisters to kiss you on the inside of your right hand -- and you kiss them on their inside of their right hand -- that way if you ever miss them or if they ever miss you -- all they have to do is kiss their hand -- and you just have to kiss your hand -- and then you guys can always have each others kisses with you. They can even hold the kiss to their heart -- and you will be together. God bless you and your beautiful family -- wishing you the very sweetest of dreams and journeys!"

Jesus will give you a great big hug, and He will care for your brave mommy and sisters until they get to see you again.
Angela- I am so amazed by your strength through all of this, and I know that somehow God can provide you with the comfort and energy you need to get through. I'm praying for you, and I hope to see you at Epic or MOPS soon."

"Someone I know wanted me to pass this poem along to you. My prayers are with your family.

To All Parents?.by Edgar A. Guest

?I’ll lend you for a little time a child of mine?, he said
?For you to love the while he lives, and mourn for when he’s dead.
It may be for six or seven years, or twenty two or three;
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for Me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you; and should his stay be brief,
You’ll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return;
But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
I’ve looked the wide world over, in my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes, I have selected you.

Now you will give him all your love nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call, to take him back again?
I fancied that I heard them say ? Dear Lord, Thy will be done.
For all the joy Thy child will bring the risk of grief we’ll run?.

We’ll shelter him with tenderness, we’ll love him while we may
And for the happiness we have known forever grateful stay;
But shall the angels call him much sooner than we’ve planned,
We?ll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.? "


Melissa G. of AZ

I just wanted to say that I am sorry for your loss, and cannot even imagine what this whole process has been like for you. I have had the privilege to get to know you and Deja through Deja's Aunt Patti, and my heart breaks for all of your family.

Stephanie F. of NJ

"Angela! There are no words that I can say to bring your little girl back but I wanted to write you a little something that will hopefully encourage you as you have been such an awesome encouragement to me......A poem for mom about Deja!!!!!

"Just Across the Jordan"

Just across the Jordan River is where Princess Deja now resides.
She received her crown from Jesus himself who is now physically right by her side.
If you can imagine in your mind Jesus and Deja walking hand and hand,
He's showing her the streets of Gold and the angel choir band!
Deja has her own mansion you know and I'm sure her very own carousel,
All of her favorites, it would take all day to tell!!!!
IT's amazing up there, it's always full of light.
So don't worry about her being scared or ever having a fright.
She's in the hands of her maker and He has great plans
For such a strong and brave girl who has many many fans.
You see, Deja is whole again without any pain
She's happy and healthy and playing once again.
Angela and family just hang on for a little bit more,
Because one day you will come to that golden, crystal shore.
The shore of the Jordan where Princess Deja was crowned.
A princess in Heaven and I'm sure she's looking down.
You will meet again and what a day that will be,
When you see your little girl and realize that you have her for eternity!

We love you dearly and pray for you daily!

We read your beautiful poem during her services! It is so beautiful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!


Jody M. of AZ

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family...
When you are ready, I'd like to talk to you about adding memory albums to your foundation or I'd like to do albums in conjunction with your foundation. Memories are so VERY important. I think that is the one thing you and your family have reinforced in my life. I want to use my talents to help you preserve those memories for others.
I'm so thankful for Deja. She has taught me so much about following my heart and doing the things that make us happy. I'm not waiting for "some day" anymore. I am so honored to have met you and you family. I hope the happy memories and the love you've all shared bring you comfort. God bless you all!"

"Little Princess Deja...The Lord placed you on this earth to be an example to the rest of us. You are so brave and strong. My daughter suffers from a rare disease and I know how scary that can be. I met you when you were still new to this world. Your mommie and Daddy were so proud to share your birth with all of us at Southwest Gas. Grandma Mattie was so joyful and Happy to have a BEAUTIFUL grandbaby that was you..! You are so loved by all and we will always remember and keep your memories alive. GOD BLESS THE FAMILES."

I pray for strength for her family. May they find peace and comfort in her memory. I have prayed to my husband to be there in heaven to hold her hand and guide her on her journey. She is safe in the arms of the Lord and she has left this life knowing she was and is loved."

Jennifer C. of AZ

"Just wanted to express my deepest sympathy for you and your family, from what I have learned from this website is life is too precious to count the hours or days, My the LORD be with you in this time of sorrow."


Tamara T. of AZ

"I don't know you & can only tell you what i've read on your page, however i can say that you truly blessed the earth with your 4yrs,you spent on this earth. And although it's hard to see now God uses tragedies to open our eyes and the eyes of others his amazing power. It is unfortunate that such a beautiful little girl's life had to be cut so short, but it is amazing to see how many hearts she touched in her lifetime. People will remember her for eternity and remember the unsurpassing strength and faith you had during this tragedy and realize that with God all things are possible. I don't know you and can't say I know what your going through but I can say thank you for allowing so many people to get to know your beautiful little girl. I too am a single mom and honestly if you ever need anything a shoulder, a prayer, a break, a meal, a ride, or just a friend I am up for that anytime any day. May God continue to bless your family in abundance and keep you safe and sane during these agonizing times. Tamara "


Tara L. of AZ

"Dear Angela, I saw your story a couple of months and I know you have had lots of support but I just want to tell you how amazing I think you are, I am 27 and have 3 girls and one one the way, and my 6 &7 yr old are 11 mo apart and I dont know what those 2 would do w/out each other, Last month my 3 yr old had a lump under her chin and I was told it was a cyst then a tumor then cancer then tb, well I guess the dr didnt really know so she was to have surgery right away the next week, 2 days before surgery it went away and the dr said it was probably a simple virus running its course, that was the worst week of my life, I felt like I could not breath, I thought of you alot that week and how you were doing it. Deja reminds me alot of myself I had leukemia when i was 2 till I was about 7 and at the time only 14% of people lived because all the drugs were still experimental, my mom said I would not give up, and deja fought till the end, but she taught me a lesson I should have already known, but that lesson was that the days go by soo fast and as a single mom I would sometimes get frustrated over STUPID things, things that dont matter, messy house, bills, life period, but believe me you and deja made alot of us single mothers dealing with every life take a step back and look at whats important, you delt with all that and every mothers worst nightmare, Deja was so lucky to have a mother like you and I am so sorry this happened to your family and just know that it wasn’t for no reason, she taught us all who read your story and read along a precious lesson. I hope you know too, that its ok to break down, you were deja rock but now you gotta be your own. We all love deja and I didnt even know her....God bless your and your family and I dont know if olivia understands everything, but being so close in age I bet they had a special bond and God knows it will never go away deja will stay alive in her heart always, I am sorry I am rambleing on, I don’t know how to put all my thoughts into words, so god bless all of you....Tara"


Judy A. of AZ

"Dear Angela, mommy of Deja. I am so sorry about Deja's passing. I will always honor the way you celebrated Princess Deja. You have made a difference in how a short life can be lived fully and remembered. I donated some toys for Deja's crown and for memories and hope to contribute again so she is remembered again and again. "


Betty M. of AZ

"Angela - There hasn't been a day you and Deja weren't included in my prayers. The strength and dignity you've had during these months is amazing. You are a very remarkable woman.

"I am so sorry when I learned last Thursday while visiting this website that Deja had passed away --- even though I never met her...she held a special place in my heart...../I just wanted you to know that I was really touched by your story and for the love you had for Deja during her last are such a special mom...god given and I know that god will never forget how you gave so unconditionally all that you had to your beautiful are amazing Angela....I wish you the best and hope that you keep us posted on your progress and foundation - "


Marlene G. of AZ

"Angela--Deja's testimony and yours is incredible. I am sorry for your loss and can only imagine the heartache without your little princess. You are in our prayers. How is Deja's Crown progressing? Do you need any help putting the boxes together or do you just primarily need supplies to get it off and running. Please let me know and I will try to help you any way I can as well as recruit women of my church (Broadway Christian) to help if we can. Hugs and Prayers as you journey forward."



"A co-worker told me about your family and I've been praying for all of you. I just received word of Deja saying goodbye to her family and was given the website. I must tell you how hard it was for me to see your little angel in those beautiful photos and to read about her demise. I too had two granddaughters who passed away three years ago from a horrible disease called Battens Disease. They too had the same Doctors, Dr. Hadden and the others as well. It brought it all back for me. I am very sad for you and wish you only the best. Keep those memories alive for your children but never dwell. Remember this, God gave you other children/angels and they're counting on you and watching everything you do and listening to your every word. That is how they learn how to survive this. "


Jennifer J. of AZ

"Hi, I just wanted to tell you how much your story has touched me. My name is Jennifer and I have four beautiful healthy children, thank God. You are so strong and inspirational, I just wanted you to know that I have followed Deja's story for a while now and I am bawling sitting in front of my computer right now, I just thought I would check the website to see how she was doing, it has been a quick summer and I have been so busy getting the kids ready to start school I don't get much time on the computer so I thought I would check your site. I just want you to know how much I am thinking of you and I hope you are doing well. Deja is truly in a wonderful place now and I hope you have so much peace in your heart knowing how much you meant to her. It is truly the measure of why God put you here on this earth. I will hold my babies a little closer after reading this and I wish you a life full of happiness and love. You truly are an inspiration to all moms and all people on this earth. What a beautiful little miracle you created. You and your family will be in our prayers."
