David Cross Obituary

David Jeremiah Cross, 6 yrs old was born January 21, 2018 in Galloway, NJ.  On this day our lives were forever changed by the arrival of a precious soul we lovingly named David. His presence was a beacon of light, radiating joy through his infectious SMILE and captivating round eyes that could warm any heart and illuminate the darkest of rooms. David found solace and delight in the adventures of Mickey Mouse, his loyal companion in moments of joy. Despite being born with a challenging heart defect, David's spirit shone brightly as he courageously battled through every trial and tribulation that came his way, earning the name “Giant Slayer”

In his six short years on this earth, he proved to be a true warrior, overcoming obstacles that would have daunted even the bravest souls. 

David's journey was made brighter by the love and companionship of his 12-year-old brother, Dustin. The bond between the brothers was a source of endless laughter and joy, with Dustin's funny antics never failing to bring a smile to David's face. Through all his pain, Dustin stood by his side, offering comfort, love, and unwavering support. In moments of darkness, Dustin's reassuring words and loving presence provided solace to David, reminding him that he was never alone in his struggles. With a heart full of love, Dustin promised his dear brother that he would be by his side and love him no matter what.

David's legacy is one of resilience, love, and unwavering strength, enriched by the bond between two brothers.  May their bond continue to shine brightly, a testament to the enduring power of family and the unbreakable spirit of brotherly love. Rest in peace, dear David. Your smile will  forever be in our hearts. 

David leaves to cherish his loving memories of his mother Shareda Cross, brother Dustin Hill, grandmother Gloria Griffin, grandfather Michael Cross, Great grandmother Esther Cross and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

Special acknowledgments and thanks to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, David’s Cardiologist, Dr Chitra Ravishankar and his loving home nurses Lisa Cruz and Beverly Watts.
