Alana Snow Ayala

February 28, 2017 – February 28, 2017

Your memory is my keepsake, with which I’ll never part, God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart –unknown

Alana Ayala was the daughter of Anibal Ayala Jr. and Sarah Morris of Spencer MA. She is survived by two siblings, Anthony and Angelique, grandmother & grandfather Neimat and Peter Morris, as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.

She lived to a perfect 35 ½ weeks and was strong, healthy and flawless. She was taken from this world before she was born due to a fatal incident with her umbilical cord. All she ever knew was the love from her family, and sounds of her brother, sister, mother, father, dog, relatives, well-wishing friends and extended family. She enjoyed listening to music and dancing with her belly headphones, the sound of Papi’s voice when he came home from work at night, and performing all sorts of acrobatics throughout the day. She was born with her Mami’s eyes, ears, hands and feet, her daddy’s heart-shaped face, nose, and eyebrows, older sister’s mouth shape and older brother’s hair color. Alana’s name means beautiful, chosen in honor of her maternal grandmother’s islander heritage. Her middle name Snow is the English word for Nieves, in honor of her paternal grandmother’s Puerto Rican heritage.

A funeral service will take place at St. Cecilia’s Parish, 180 Mechanic Street, Leominster MA at 12:00 p.m. on March 10th, 2017. Alana will be interred alongside her paternal grandmother Carmen Lydia Nieves, who would have loved her dearly. Flowers and condolences may be sent to Richardson Funeral Home, 106 West Street, Leominster MA 01453. In Lieu of flowers, please consider sending a donation to the charity, or to the Dudley Senior Needlework Group who crafted the beautiful blanket our lovely angel will be laid to rest in.


These are my footprints,

so tiny and so small.

These tiny footprints

never touched the ground at all.

Not one tiny footprint,

for now I have wings.

These tiny footprints were meant

for other things.

You will hear my tiny footprints

in the patter of the rain.

Gentle drops like angel’s tears

of joy and not from pain.

You will see my tiny footprints

in each butterflies’ lazy dance.

I’ll let you know I’m with you,

If you just give me the chance.

You will see my tiny footprints

in the rustle of the leaves.

I will whisper names into the wind,

and call each one that grieves.

Most of all, these tiny footprints,

are found on Mommy and Daddy’s hearts.

Cause even though I’m gone now,

we’ll never truly part.

Sarah I'm sorry doesn't begin to cover it, I am heartbroken for you all. You are in my thoughts and prayers now and in the days, weeks, and months ahead. Your beautiful sweet Alana Snow will always be remembered and loved! She danced in your womb and now she dances with Jesus.

Your big brother misses you girly. I want you to know that no man on this earth could have ever loved you the way I do. Your life has impacted me ever since your first heartbeat. I want you to know that just because I can’t see you doesn’t mean I can’t love you anymore. That love will set the fire to millions of torches. And may those torches be your guide. To a second life of fullness, for now you will live your life as an angel. Your Brother (especially) loves you. Your Mother, Father, Sister, Grandmother, Cousins, Aunts and Uncles love you………….but I love you even more. When I saw you, it looked like my eyes landed on an angel sent down from heaven. I love you Snow Angel.
