Mia was the most beautiful, energetic little girl who loved to sing and dance. She had a contagious laugh and a willingness to learn and help people. Mia loved her brothers and sisters very much. She was a great student, loved to draw and color, and always saw the humor in things. She left us way too early and will be missed forever.
She is survived by her father, Douglas Martinez (Sarah); mother Neysha Candelaria; brothers and sisters Shawn, Andres, Noah, Angelo and Ariana; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and grandparents. She is preceded in death by Shawn Martinez who passed Feb. 16, 2002, grandparents Ferris and Martha Martinez and great-grandma Susie Candelaria.
