Amarii Jewelz Hogan

Amarii Jewelz Hogan, 16 months, "Giiwedin Anang Giiwitaa Giizhigook" which means "North Star – All Around the Sky" of Cass Lake, Minnesota began her journey to the spirit world unexpectedly from the Mercy Hospital in Council Bluffs, IA on Monday, March 21st, 2022.

A little about our baby girl..

Amarii Hogan was born October 25, 2020. She is the second beautiful daughter of Allaurah Isham and Derrean Hogan, Jr. Amarii was born in Bemidji MN, and lived in Cass Lake with her mom, dad, sister and papa for most of her infant life before recently being in Omaha. She was the younger sister, and one look from those big beautiful bratty eyes and you couldn't tell her no! She was so fun and full of adventure, even at a young age. You could tell this little girl was on a mission! She was at the age where she wanted to be picked up, then set down, then picked back up, then sat back down (because she spied something curious and wanted to check it out but also wanted to be held at the same time). Amarii was learning her independence and being a big baby simultaneously. And oh boy, if you were holding sister and she saw, you better make room on your lap for her too because she was definitely coming over and crawling up too ❤️ You couldn't do one thing without the other, anything sister could do, you can bet Amarii was right there waiting for her turn. The bond they shared as sisters, is irreplaceable. And if she seen you with food, you better just hand it over, because she was coming for that too! Amarii had that smile, where if you were passing her in Target, you would want to stop and wave and smile back. She could brighten anyone's day up, with one of her big squishy hugs from her little baby self. And man, you would melt for those dimples of hers! Contagious happiness from a chunky, bossy, lovable, smart Babygirl. Although she lived a short life, the impact she made on us all, will live on with us forever. We are so grateful for the time we were allowed with her; we are so grateful she blessed us with her presence and memories. We maintain that she was simply too beautiful for this world, that our higher power had a grander plan for this little one. We believe that she is with her Grandpa, and we forever have two Guardian Angels watching over us.

Family that will care for Amarii in the spirit world are her grandpa, Darryl Northbird, great grandma, Sara Isham; auntie, Kaelynn Isham; uncle, Daniel Isham and many other family members.
