Our precious angel, Avril Rose Gestes, daughter of Garrett and Autumn Gestes, on December 20th2020, went home to be with Jesus. A service is being held Saturday, January 16th 2021, at 10a.m. at Hampton Vaughn Crestview Funeral Home & Memorial Park, 1917 Archer City Hwy, Wichita Falls. We are heartbroken as we struggle to understand. The gift of our youngest daughter arrived on June 15th 2018 - from the first moment she captured our hearts, and brought so much joy into our lives. And with her big blue eyes and heart-melting smile- so big her whole face would light up, she quickly wrapped her daddy tightly around her little finger. As she grew, so did her infectious, sparkling, happy personality – so active and inquisitive…we loved watching her wide-eyed delight with each new day. Avril loved her two big sisters, Adi and Aubrey, and they adored her. They loved playing together, watching their favorite shows- especially SpongeBob and Paw Patrol, and sharing the funny new adventures of their brand new puppy, Molly. She was in awe of her new baby brother, Brantley. Always wanting to help us dress him – handing us the shirt, and close as she could get while we fed him. She was so sweet and loveable. Though things red were her favorite, she loved any color that had glitter and sparkles…and of course her Teddy Bear to snuggle with at bedtime. She loved her Memaw & Papaw, her Lolli and her PaPaw – and they adored her. As well as all of her grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, Cousins and all of extended family and family friends. Avril was so loved by all that knew her, and the impression that she left- in her too short a time with us- will forever remain on all of our hearts. She was her Momma’s heart. She was her Daddy’s world.

We would like to thank all of the family and friends that have been helping to hold us up as we are trying to get through what we could have never dreamed. And also to those who assisted us at Hampton Vaughn Crestview Funeral Home.

I don't know you but I share your pain. I lost my seven year old granddaughter Addison on April 1, 2020. It was sudden. She was in perfect health and very active. I don't understand how it could have happened so fast. I just try to take it day by day. My sincere condolences to your family.
