Tahlia "Tally-Bug" Berlyn Vuttera, 2, of Rockford, flew up to the loving arms of the Lord in heaven on December 5, 2013. Born Dec. 2, 2011 to Jessica Stuckey and Marty Vuttera. Tally was a gift from the moment she was born, the day she was brought home from the hospital, there was a halo in the sky and we immediately knew she had a very special girl. Now today, she is our angel smiling down. Tally was a bright light in everyone's life. She loved everyone and everything, especially all of her puppies, apples, her elle doll and books, or as she would say "cooks". She was a headstrong, rambunctious, determined and fearless child. She looked at everything in such amazement and awe, even if she had seen or heard it 100 times. Every time she heard a train she would shrug her shoulders high and take a deep breath loudly in surprise. She had just started to really talk and conversations with her were so fun, usually consisting of a lot of "Iono", "yah" and "you do-et"s. Tahlia leaves behind cherished memories with her mother, Jessica Joy Stuckey; father, Marty R. Vuttera; maternal grandparents, Gabriele Rita Stuckey (Earl Axelson); paternal grandparents, Rich (Donna) Vuttera and Carole Vuttera; godparents, Carly Smith, Sarah Vuttera and Jon Widell; and many extended family and friends. We learned so much in such a short time from her and she will forever be the light and love of all of our lives. Our piece of heaven, our angel up above, our light, life, and love. Rest in paradise, sweet Tally B., we hope you're dancing in the stars. Love you to the moon and beyond, now and forever.

An angel in the book of life wrote down my baby's birth ... and whispered as she closed the book "too beautiful for earth".
