Timothy Justin Castaneda was born on Tuesday June 27, 1995 at 3:38pm in St. Clare's Hospital in Denville, New Jersey. He weighed 5lbs 14oz. and he was 19 inches long. Even though he was born a little early and so tiny we were able to bring him home from the hospital 2 days later. He was a precious gift from God! Timmy brought so much joy into our lives! We were so thankful for him. We were so blessed when he was born because we did not think after our first son was born we would be able to have anymore children. We were so blessed!
We know God had a plan for our precious son. We hope that his death will help save other teenagers and they will think before they take risks with their lives. We know Timmy is in heaven watching over us.
Timmy passed away on Saturday October 13, 2012 at 12:42pm at WakeMed in Raleigh, North Carolina with all of his family by his side. We will be forever grateful to the awesome staff in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. They worked so hard to care for him and our family! They are truly wonderful nurses, doctors and respiratory therapists who went way beyond the call of duty for him and us!!!
We love him and miss him so much but we know one day we will see him again!!!!!!
