In her American home on July 4, 2018, Zoey peacefully passed away.
Her parents knew they could have some beautiful last moments together, despite the fact that their family was inevitably devastated by her impending death.
Up until her final minutes, Zoey continued to spread joy. Her parents asked all relatives and friends to come home to them and see her before it was too late.
Now, her mother has bravely decided to share the family’s last moment together on Facebook.
“I shared it because even though it’s a painful moment, it’s a beautiful moment in our eyes,” Casey mentioned.

They’d sat down on the couch with the family’s dog. They’d spent the day to singing Disney songs. A Harry Potter movie played on television. And amidst the peace, the calmness, Zoey was suddenly gone.
The world is going to learn about Zoey. We will keep giving back and spreading love and light to the world since she has given us so much of it.j
After about half the movie, Zoey’s heart stopped beating.
“I had seen a handful of families sharing moments and originally I didn’t think I was going to share it. ‘But I thought: “I want a photo like that taken”. I want those moments captured so I can remember them forever even when my brain is gone,” she explained.
On the Facebook page Zoey’s Light, the family now wants to spread the hope and light that Zoey gave the world all those years before her death. They want Zoey to inspire others to help each other, and to love each other fully, gratefully — one ordinary day at a time.
What Caseby and Ben got to experience, no mom or dad would ever have to go through.
Casey and Ben, you have been the most amazing Mom and Dad ever. My prayers will continue forever. Zoey is now an angel looking over all of us.
