Marceleno Jay'deon Mozzion Tillman was born October 11, 2022, in Albuquerque, NM to Michael Tillman and Jodeci Smith. Marceleno entered the spirit world on January 4, 2023, to SIDS at just under 3 months old.
Marceleno loved being held and snuggled close. He loved kisses from everyone and would only fall asleep while laying close to your chest. His big brown eyes would look directly into yours as you talked to him. I loved to smell him and just snuggle up close to him. I'd dress him up and just show him off. He brought everyone a lot of love, joy, and happiness in such a short time. He will be truly missed.
