Cruz Alexander Aguirre

November 9, 2020 — June 27, 2024

Cruz Alexander Aguirre was welcomed with excitement and joy by parents Baylee & Ricardo Aguirre and big brother Leo on November 9, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas. Though born into a tumultuous year for the world over, it was clear from his birth that part of his life’s mission would be to bring love and healing. As an infant, among the first glimpses into his unique character was his innate gentleness in how he loved others, and a calm self-assuredness in how he moved through the world. He is a very special soul who had so much to show us. 

We often think we understand our true passion and potential by answering questions like “what would you attempt in life if you knew you couldn’t fail?” Cruz’s life showed us how limitless we truly are if instead we ask “what about you shines brightest when you welcome and nurture your truest nature and divine gifts?” Cruz’s nature and gifts were defined by his capacity for love and learning. 

He loved openly, and showed affection with a warm, calm demeanor that struck caregivers and those close to him. While many children seek arms to hold, secure and comfort them, Cruz naturally sought to give and grow as much and more than he received from others. If he fell or failed at play, he was quick to hoist himself up and reassure those around him with a quick, “I’m ok” and return to play. He loved and was loved by a wide and deep tribe built off of his strong foundation at home with his parents and his big brother Leo. He profoundly affected the lives of grandparents, extended family on both sides, and close friends. Cruz’s gift continues to show us, with the tremendous outpouring of love and support at his passing, the profound impact of an open heart. 

Cruz was also marked by his incredible intelligence. He was not simply mimicking or just quick to learn, but showed a personal drive and passion for learning. Left to his own devices, Cruz could almost always be found playing with his ABC blocks. He would wake up early or steal away to play quietly with them alone or with whomever would join him. By 2 it was clear he was doing more than mindlessly stacking blocks: he had taught himself to read, spell, and count. And he could connect ideas to language, letters and numbers with ease. Counting backwards from 100 was another recent self-taught accomplishment. The joy of how words and knowledge help us connect to each other and to the world was so clearly tied to his divine nature: it was simply the way he experienced his daily life and moved through the world. 

Though only offered 3 years and 7 months and 12 days, Cruz brought the world love, healing, and showed what is truly possibly for all of us by simply and beautifully living as our divine, unique and perfect selves. And he did it so perfectly, so beautifully that our Heavenly Father welcomed him Home on June 27, 2024. He has more plans awaiting him. And we can’t wait to hear them when we see him again.
