Ezra Gotham Chamu April 3, 2018 born 2:04pm became an angel 4:30pm

Ezra Gotham was born to his parents Alexis and Armando Chamu at Rush Copley Hospital in Aurora, IL. Ezra was born too soon at only 18 weeks, measuring 8.7 inches long and weighed 8.8 ounces. Ezra had his mothers lips, ears, and toes and his fathers nose and shoulders. In his short life he was able to reach out his little arm and hold on to his mothers finger as he laid on her chest. He also had a chance to be held in his fathers arms until he took his last breath. Ezra Gotham will be buried at Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery next to his great-grandfather Jose Terriquez. Procession to the cemetery will begin at Woodlawn Funeral Home (7750 W Cermak Rd in Forest Park) at 11:30am.

“An angel in the book of life wrote down our Ezra’s birth then whispered as she closed the book... too beautiful for earth.”
