CONSIER On January 6, 2015 Jonah ]ames Consier made his well an- ticipated entrance into the world. Starting from his very first moments, he was all smiles, especially while being held by big broth- er Boaz (Bo). Whereas Bo would do everything with his father ]on, Jonah was always in his mother's arms. People often mentioned the looks of adoration that he would constantly show Marisol. Jonah was the perfect addition to Jon, Marisol, and Bo's family. At three months old, after a trip to the emergency room due to a rash and fever, his family was notified of elevated levels of liver enzymes. This eventually led to his diagnosis of Glycogen Storage Disease Type IV. It was quickly made known that a liver transplant was his only option. Over the next six months, Jonah's life consisted of countless doctors appointments and multiple hospital stays, yet there was never any outward appearance of illness. Marisol and Jonah were together constantly as she nursed, held and slept next to him every night. His contagious smile and exciting hand gestures made the thought of this disease disappear. After a routine appointment at Texas Children's Hospital in late January 2016, Marisol and Jon were notified of an available liver. In preparation for surgery, initial evaluation showed complications with the organ and, as such, surgery was cancelled. Jonah's condition quickly became worse. Since Jonah always showed signs of good health it was unapparent of how sick he actually was. In the early morning of February 14, 2016 the Lord entered Jonah's hospital room and embraced him with open arms. Jonah is survived by his loving parents Jon and Marisol; big brother Boaz; grandparents Nelda and Archie Montemayor, Brenda and Bruce Consier; Aunt Caridad Montemayor and Uncles Archie Montemayor, Josh (and wife Kirby) Consier and Austin Consier. The family welcomes friends for a visitation period on Friday, February 19 from 6-8 p.m and a memorial service celebrating Jonah's life will be held on Saturday, February 20 at 2 p.m. Location for both services will be held at Harrell Funeral Home, 1715 Kirby Lane in Kyle, Texas. In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations be sent to the Association for Glycogen Storage Disease. www.
