Allie Ry Markel

It’s the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance;

It’s the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance;

It’s the one who won’t be taken, who cannot seem to give;

And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live;

When the night has been too lonely, and the road has been

too long; And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong;

Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow,

Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose.

Our daughter Allie Ry Markel touched the hearts of thousands in a short time on this earth. We take for granted how precious life truly is, In a time of distress. The definition of a miracle is a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency. Couldn’t explain her life any better than defining her as a true miracle. 01/22/24 Allie was born to, Mother: Samantha Jo Combs and Father: Alec Ryan Markel, born in Kadlec regional medical center in Richland, Washington. Allie was born 24 weeks 5 days gestation weighing in at 0.794 pounds (12 oz) 9.8in long. Allie Ry Markel the smallest baby ever born at Kadlec. She spent 63 days of her life fighting for her spot here on earth. Blowing the minds of thousands of individuals that followed her journey on Facebook and go fund me, Radio stations, churches and prayer groups all across the country rooting for 1 little girl. Not only did we bring a baby to this earth, but we brought thousands together in prayer conversations and platforms. The life of our daughter was so precious for the short time we had but never taken for granted. After 55 days in the NICU in Richland we were life flighted to sacred heart medical center in Spokane, Washington for a heart surgery that was never achieved. After several scary days in Spokane’s NICU her fight came to an end early 03/25/24! Leaving behind Mother:  Samantha, Father: Alec, Sister: Paislyn Grandmothers: Donna & Kristina, Grandfathers: Sam & Chad, several Aunts, Uncles, cousins as well as great grandparents. We are all at a true loss for words, but this tragedy has brought our family and thousands of others together to fight something worth fighting for the life of a precious little human. God is so powerful and so willing to accept, our daughter was welcomed into the pearly gates of heaven to spend eternity. Until we meet again our precious little sunflower. Love mommy, daddy and big sis.

  • Alec and Sam,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t follow all of the posts. But the ones I did see put me to tears. No parent should ever have to bury their child. But you both have a army of strong families to keep the hard days not so hard. Remember the little moments and stay positive each day going forward know she is looking down and watching you raise her sister from above.

    Love you both.
