Mitchell Beaux Hatley
Jan 21, 2011 - Jan 27, 2011

"No one is ever gone as long as someone still has memories of them."- Ed Worthington

VICTORIA - Mitchell Beaux Hatley, Jan. 21, 2011 to Jan. 27, 2011 - We met you in June when you were just a speck next to your sister in an ultrasound. We watched you grow over the next few months and fell more and more in love with you with every ultrasound we received. Daddy picked out your name and dreamed of playing catch with you in the backyard. Mommy couldn't wait to for you to get here. You were a fighter and you never gave up. We watched you come into this world at 7:48 a.m. and you were as perfect then as when you left us too soon at 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 27, 2011. Even in your short time here you brought so much joy to your family. You will be remembered as that sweet little boy who fought his way into this world and you kept fighting until the end. Beaux don't be afraid. Daddy and Mommy will always dream of you and never forget what love you brought into our hearts. We will love you forever, like you always and forever and ever our baby you will be.
We would like to thank all the nurses in the NICU at Citizen's Hospital and the tireless work and care they gave Beaux during his stay with them. We know this must be hard for each of you but our memories will always be fond of each one of you ladies. We also want to thank Dr. Romeu, Dr. Gonzales, David Maddux and the doctors and staff of Texas Children's Hospital in Houston for the care they provided our little boy. We would also want to thank our friend and pediatrician Dr. Matthew Pesek at Texas Children's Hospital for being with us and providing guidance as Beaux received his care.
Beaux is survived by his beautiful twin sister, Charlotte Elizabeth; his loving parents, Micah and Erin Hatley; his grandparents, Janie and Tony Hatley, TJ O'Dowd, Merry and Martin O'Dowd; and many other loving family members and friends.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
Mitchell Beaux's body was donated to Texas Children's Hospital in hopes that they can find a treatment and cure for the rare metabolic disorder that took his life.
