Celebrating The Life Of Loved Ones

Vina Ivy Le

Our beautiful baby girl, Vina Ivy Le (or Paj Nra) was born on November 20, 2006. Just like her Hmong name, she was a beautiful blooming flower. God loves her so much and needed her back that he called her back home to him on Saturday, December 15, 2018. During her life on earth, she has made not only her earthly parents and families proud, but also her Heavenly Father proud. From the moment she was born, she did not gave anyone any trouble. She loved to sing, dance, and be surrounded by people she loves. Though her mom wanted to dress her like a princess, she preferred comfortable clothes. She preferred her daddy styles of clothes. Her favorite animal in the world is panda. Pandas are so soft and cuddly just as she was. She spread joy and love to anyone she met. Our beautiful baby, Vina, was also a very strong and brave girl. Never wanted to bother anyone or have anyone worry about her. She loved to help others and make them happy all the time. Her time on earth is short, but touches so many people’s lives. We wished God would grant us more time with her, but our sweet, cheerful, and innocent baby was miss and needed by our Heavenly Father so he decided to call her to her permanent and real home in Heaven. She will never have to feel pain or suffer anymore sadness and sickness on this earth. She’s now singing and dancing with the angels in Heaven. We thought we taught her in this life, but she gave us the greatest lesson and blessing. She taught us to learn to forgive and love one another so that we may go to Heaven. Her heart carried no hatred. Our time on earth is unpredictable. We never know when God is going to call us home so while we are bless with time on earth, love and forgive. Be pure like the children. In Mark 10:13-16, He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. In Matthew 18:10, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”

Vina, you keep on dancing and singing with the angels and stay with our Heavenly Father. One day we shall all meet again. Until we meet again, you’ll forever remain in our hearts. We love you, baby Vina. 

The family will hold services at Catawba Funeral Home 3060 Hwy 70 SE, Newton, NC on Saturday from 9 am until 5 pm and at Stanly Funeral and Cremation Care of Albemarle on Sunday from 9 am until 1 pm.  

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
