Oliver Glenn Mendez

March 8, 2011 - March 17, 2011

Oliver Glenn MendezMarch 8, 2011 ~ March 17, 2011Our sweet angel returned to his Father in Heaven’s open arms after a brief stay with his earthly family. He passed away peacefully at home, due to Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. While his mortal life was short, his wonderful spirit left an impression on those who loved him which will be felt for an eternity. Those who were touched by him understand that the quality of one’s life far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. We rejoice, knowing that he is no longer burdened by his condition and know that he lives on, his earthly mission completed. He is survived by his loving parents, Oscar and Story Mendez, as well as each of his grandparents, Keith and Charlotte Williams, and Eduardo and Estrella Mendez. Also living are his aunt and each of his uncles, in addition to great grandparents, great aunts and great uncles, second cousins and many other family members. Preceding him in death are his great grandparents, Prudencio Juarez-Velazco, Ofelia Ramirez-Navarro, and Virginia Williams. Graveside services will be held Saturday, March 19, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park, 836 36th Street, Ogden. In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made through America First Credit Union under Oliver’s name. Online condolences may be sent to the family at

Story & Oscar,I did not hear about the passing of your son until Bishop Astorga announced it in church Sunday. We are still 6 months away from the birth of our next baby, and this news touched me deeply. Oliver must have been very special to have been needed so soon by his Heavenly Father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.Steve & Lisa Smith family, 8th Ward

Our Heavenly Father has trusted you with such an important duty to ensure that this spirit received a body and a whole lifetime worth of love in such a short time. Please know that we care about you and your family so much. The whole ward is here to support you in any way we can. I hope your family can find some comfort in each other and the Lord. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Story,I read in the newspaper about the passing of your sweet baby Oliver. It is heartbreaking to lose someone so young. He must be a very valiant spirit. We lost a son 13 years ago, just before I went to teach at Horace Mann. He was 21 years old and had just been home from his mission for 10 months. He died in a car accident. I know he has continued his mission on the other side, as will your little Oliver. We don't understand all of what the Lord has planned for us, but we must continue the journey. You are sad now, and you will have days ahead when you are very heavyhearted. You will never forget your little one, but I can assure you there will be happiness again.My condolences go to you and your husband and family. You were a very special student and I just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you.With love,Beth V. Maughan (former art teacher at Horace Mann)

"When God calls our children to dwell with Him above, we mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love. For no heartache compares with the death of a child, who does so much to make our world wonderful and mild. Perhaps, God tires of calling the aged to his fold, so he picks a rosebud before it can fully grow old. God knows how much we need them, and so he takes a few to make the land of heaven more beautiful to view. Believing this is difficult but still somehow we must try . The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye". So when a child departs this world, we who are left behind must realize God loves children, "Angels are hard to find."
