Obituary of Ryder and River Saieva-Carr
Ryder Timothy Thomas Saieva-Carr: December 16th, 2022- December 16th, 2022 & River Anthony Mario Saieva-Carr: December 16th, 2022- December 18th, 2022
On Friday, December 16th, 2022 at 9:53 a.m. our hearts were filled with joy as our twin boys, Ryder and River decided to join our family at 28 weeks. Our little miracles were so excited to meet us together that they were born within seconds of each other. They were perfect in every way possible filling our hearts with so much love that we did not know possible. They were small but mighty, and both fought so hard. Ryder lost his battle later that evening and gained his angel wings. River continued to fight so strong, but he did not want to be away from his identical brother. On December 18th, 2022 after a two day valiant fight, River gained his angel wings and joined his brother Ryder. Ryder and River were always together from the start, born together and are now at peace together. Even though they were with us for a short time, we were there for their entire lives.
Ryder and River leave behind their most loving and caring parents Chelsea (Saieva) and Tim Carr whom Ryder and River made them first time Mama and Papa. Though they are heartbroken over the loss of their twin boys, they will forever cherish the memories they got to spend with their miracle babies and are so proud of both Ryder and River for their hard fought battles. Even with all the odds against them, they tried their absolute hardest for their parents to give them as much time as they could. They will be forever remembered by their first time Nonno and Nonna Tony and Chiara (Marcon) Saieva, first time grandparents Tim Sr. and Diane Carr, first time Bisnonnas Giovanna Marcon and Antonietta Saieva, great grandmother Joanne Presot, first time aunt Kaitlyn and many great aunts, great uncles and cousins. Ryder and River will also be deeply missed by their fur babies Max, Sunny, Oliver and Bosco who long awaited their arrival.
Predeceased by and welcomed at the golden gates with open arms are Bisnonnos Mario Marcon and Calogero Saieva, great grandfathers Tom and Jimmy and great grandmother Louise.
Cremation has taken place and arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. A service will take place at a later date.
