China was born in Long Beach, California on August 11, 1980 at the US Naval Base. She passed peacefully on February 7, 2017 in Pasadena, CA. China was a gift and an angel of love to many friends and family. In many ways she was not meant for this world. She was a beautiful soul and one of the kindest human beings. China was a voracious reader - her portal into other worlds - and she loved and sought out interesting people. She loved the innocence of dogs and children. She played at many things in her short life, but overall, she simply was an artist and a piece of art. She attended JellyBean Island Learning Academy, in nether-nether land, and she was wise beyond her years. We are forever grateful China came into our lives and it’s hard to imagine a future where she is not kitten dancing with Mikey B. Godspeed into the next world China, you are a brilliant being of light. Another time and another place will be safer. China is preceded in death by her mother (Ramona) and her biological father (Mikey B). She is survived by her siblings (Anna, John, Michael and Krissi), her adoptive father (Michael) and her step-mother (Susan) as well as her dogs (Frankie Bean and Button), and those much-loved friends she chose as her family (you know who you are). We miss you so much.
