Lacey Precious Christensen returned to heaven on Tuesday, September 22, 1998.
Born on June 13, 1996 she survived the odds and doubled her life expectancy. In her short 27 months here on earth, everyone who knew her was "touched by an angel."Lacey taught us the meaning of unconditional love. She helped us gain an eternal perspective of compassion and service. She gave us an understanding of the principles of God and gave us a desire to live our lives so we can be with her again.
Lacey will be remembered for her patience and her ability to listen to others. Support circles will never be forgotten whether they be therapists, physicians and staff at her various health and care centers, friends and neighborhood children (young and old) who stopped by to play and visit with her, and family and friends who supported and cared for all of our daily needs.
Music was an integral part of Lacey's little life. With odds against her, she learned to vocalize and "sing." She learned to share smiles, especially when she was included in stories or rides in the car. Playing games with her brothers and sisters was always her favorite and even brought a giggle or two.
Lacey leaves behind her parents, Kim and RaeAnna, and her brothers and sisters: Matt and Meshelle, Orem; Melissa, Rochelle, Megan, Kyle, Natalie, Nathan and Jacob of Provo; grandparents: Marv and Rita Robbins, Sandy; June Baker, Draper; Dave and Bonnie Hamilton, Jerome, Idaho; Medena Christensen, Bend, Oregon; and aunts, uncles, cousins and friends all over the world.
As daddy's little "sweetest heart", her memory will continue and our "little angel", "little princess" and "little bug" will live on forever through her example to us. We held and cared for her and now she's holding and caring for all of us.
The family will receive friends Friday, September 25th, from 6-8 p.m. at the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 East 800 North, Orem. Services will be held on Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Grandview 10th Ward Chapel, 1850 West 1600 North, Provo. Interment will be at the East Lawn Memorial Hills Cemetery, 4800 North 650 East, Provo.
