Almariah died of a heparin overdose.
Almariah was the daughter of Kenya and Greggorio Duque of Dallas, Texas.
Almariah underwent small bowel, liver and pancreas transplants in December. She was making a good recovery and by early February was discharged and back with her parents in one of the hotel-style family rooms on the hospital's campus.
But she developed a virus and infection and returned to the Nebraska Medical Center on Feb. 13, her father said.
The virus caused her kidneys to shut down so she started undergoing dialysis, he said.
Her father said she was getting the heparin intravenously during the dialysis.
Almariah Izabella Duque was born April 17, 2008 and passed away on March 31, 2010. She is preceded in death by her grandmother Maria Lourdes Garcia and cousin Samuel Matthew Kaszycki. Survived by her father Greg Duque and mother Kenya Duque Grandmother Irma Marin and grandfather Salvador Marin. Almariah was a beautiful little girl full of life and joy. Her laughter would always light up the room. Almariah had the strength to pull through many obstacles in her life- Almariah loved to play with friends and toys and loved to sing and read books. She is her parent's greatest joy and they adore her and will continue to be their inspiration. Her voice will never be forgotten and her memory kept alive forever. Mommy and Daddy miss you and will never stop fighting for you. Visitation will be 2-8pm, Friday, April 9, 2010 at the funeral home. Services are 2pm, April 10, 2010 at Grove Hill Funeral .
