Kayley DeFrees, beloved daughter, was called home by Jesus on Thursday, January 28, 2016. She entered this world on November 24, 2015 in Albuquerque, NM, born to Reece and Melissa DeFrees.
She is survived by her parents and two brothers, Klayton and Karter.
Kayley struggled mightily with congenital heart disease, ultimately succumbing to a stroke from surgical complications. Her brief life was a blessing to her family and the world, and she passed peacefully at home.
