Mara Kay was born on June 13, 2013 in Dickinson, the daughter of Atilano and Erica (Pender) Crespo. She started her life ahead of schedule, anxious to meet her family she arrived three weeks early. Her parents called her their little peanut who weighed just 5 lbs. 1 oz. at birth. Mara may have been small, but with her big heart and contagious smile she spread great joy to those she shared her life with. She was loved by many, and brought much happiness to her family in the short time she was here. Mara was our little miracle, our first love, our everything. She will always be in the hearts of all who knew her. Most people only dream of angels, we have held one in our arms
