In loving memory:Declan Wilder Colianna

Declan was born on August 3rd, 2023 at 8:47am US Eastern time.

It took seven years of IVF for Declan's parents, Lani and Michael, to get him here. When he first showed up, he was one of two babies – twins – but unfortunately his sibling died in utero.

On December 27th, 2023, at some point between 9:40pm and 11:00pm US Eastern time, Declan's heart stopped. Lani and Michael found him unresponsive, and despite the best efforts of the EMTs, they weren't able to resuscitate him.

In his short time here, Declan touched so many lives – even those of people he didn't meet. So his family created this page in his memory.

Sympathy & Donations

Declan's family would like to extend their sincerest thanks for all the messages of sympathy they've received. There have been so many people who offered condolences, stories, and words of support and they are extremely grateful for it all. It would be a monumental task to respond to each message, but please know that they read each and every one.

In lieu of flowers, a simple message of sympathy is fine. If you'd like to make a donation in Declan's name, his family has provided a list of organizations that mean a lot to them. (All open external websites.)
