With great love and profound sorrow, we announce the transcendence of our beloved Samantha Danae Edwards. Born on February 20, 2005, in McAllen, Texas, her journey on Earth was a testament to her courageous, loving, and spirited nature. Mark Twain said "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." She was a radiant beacon of strength and her smile filled the hearts of those around her.\n\nSamantha Danae was a fighter, she defied all odds, inspired everyone she met, and remained steadfast in her determination to embrace life with all its ups and downs. As Helen Keller once said, "Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." Samantha Danae's life embodied this quote, proving that even in the face of adversity, one can find joy, love, and resilience. \n\nShe leaves behind an irreplaceable void, but her indomitable spirit and the memories she created will forever be etched in our hearts. Samantha Danae is survived by her loving parents, David and Adriana Edwards, and her adoring sister, Driannah Edwards. A public visitation will be held on Friday, August 18, 2023, at 4:00 pm CDT at the Ric Brown Family Funeral Home, located at 621 East Griffin Parkway, Mission, Texas, 78572. A prayer service will follow at the same location at 7:00 pm CDT.\n\nIn the end, Samantha Danae was not just a girl; she was an inspiration, a beacon of hope, a testament to the human spirit. Her life was not defined by the years she spent on earth, but by the love she gave and the joy she brought to those lucky enough to know her. We invite everyone who knew Samantha Danae to leave memories and upload photos to the memorial page as we celebrate her beautiful life and legacy.
