Daniel Joseph Castillo-Griego became an angel in the arms of his mother surrounded by family on March 1, 2019 at the Yuma District Hospital. Daniel was born on October 17, 2017 to Robert and Sophia Griego. Little Daniel was born with spina bifida and many challenges in his path that we knew he would face but we blessed him with the gift of life and he blessed all who knew him with seeing the miracle we take for granted with a healthy child. Every day seeing him overcome obstacles that doctor’s said he would never do. He was truly a #SBwarrior in his short life he lived. Giving love and happiness to anyone who came around him. Never without a smile.

The family would like to thank his physical therapist Greg Collins, Jesse his speech therapist and Michelle Keiser his occupational therapist and many doctors and nurses who assisted during his life.

A special thank you to Richard and Mary Munoz and daughter Victoria Munoz of Thornton, Colorado for being by his side until parents could make it for travel on the many trips to Denver.
