Destiny Castaneda was born on 10/31/2007. She was the first child blessed to parents Mario Castaneda and Yullissa Sanchez. Destiny was the strongest child I have ever known. Beautiful, quiet, and spoiled like the princess she was born to be. Her parents loved her deeply and sacrificed so much to see her healthy and happy. Every time she was given a new challenge in her life she lived to prove people wrong. She was a survivor. She surpassed everyone’s expectations. I will not go into medical details but she fought for her life for 6 years beyond the time she was given. She never complained, she rarely cried, she was just content to be with us as long as she could. Loved and cherished by all who knew her. Destiny had a gift not a lot of people know about. She could teach the one thing I was told by many instructors couldn’t be taught, compassion. She could touch even the hardest of hearts. She could talk without speaking. You always know what she was thinking just by the looks she could give you. She faced every storm in her life head on and never gave up. Make a Wish sent her to Disney World and to the Give Kids The World Village in Florida. The look on her face when she saw Minnie Mouse I will never forget. God blessed her with the most amazing family. Her family fought for her, sacrificed for her, and prayed for her without end. Destiny was baptized at St. Stephens Catholic Church where Manuel and Claudia Ortega were named her Godparents. The moment the water touched her she took this huge breath and sighed, a moment that would send chills up anyone’s spine. She deepened our faith, taught us how to be strong like her, and to love unconditionally. God took Destiny home on 05/01/2019. Destiny was our princess, she will always be in our hearts, gone but never forgotten. Destiny is survived by her parents Mario Castaneda and Yullissa Sanchez, Siblings (little) Mario and Maylanie Castaneda.
