In Loving Memory of

SCOTT MICHAEL MALONE

JUNE 17, 1971 - JUNE 18, 1971

For the love of a Child

Love never fades no matter the time.
The empty arms are never full no matter how
many follow in hopes of filling them.
The loss only fades to a deep recess of the heart
only to be awakened again by another.
Scott, you have never been far from our minds
only the years have separated us.
Now those years are bringing us closer again to you.
Love is unending, only time is a barrier.
And when that barrier is broken,
we can stand together again.

Love, Mom & Dad

 

    For the love of a child . Scott was to be our third son. He had two older brothers waiting for him at home. Bryan , who already knew what it was like to welcome a new brother home and Lance who would find out what being a "BIG" brother was all about. But for a twist of fate it was not to happen. Something went wrong , and our beautiful third son was taken from us at just 12 hours old. We never got a chance to know Scott but we loved him just as much as we loved his brothers. Scott also would havebeen a big brother for our fourth son Sean was born in 1973. We have no pictures or memories to share of Scott just the love that would have been in the years to come.

    It has been 27 years since Scott left our family here to join those from years before. His grandfather joined him in 1985 , and then in 1995 his "BIG" brother Lance was killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of 25. Lance can now show Scott what a "BIG" brother is all about. I know they are together getting to know each other and doing things that brothers do.

    Our hearts were broken so long ago with the loss of Scott, little did we know they would have to break again. The deep gash that sorrow leaves on your heart is so hard to understand, the why never to be answered. Only the love left behind that a parent would have given to those children gone before their time. Scott was like a butterfly, here only for a short time. But loved and missed forever by his Mom and Dad......

    A BUTTERFLY LIGHTS BESIDE
    US LIKE A SUNBEAM. AND
    FOR A BRIEF MOMENT ITS
    GLORY AND BEAUTY BELONG TO
    OUR WORLD. BUT THEN IT FLIES
    ON AGAIN AND THOUGH WE WISH
    IT COULD HAVE STAYED WE FEEL
    SO LUCKY TO HAVE SEEN IT.

    love mom

    TEARS IN HEAVEN

    Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?
    Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven?
    I must be strong and carry on,
    'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven.

    Would you hold my hand if I saw you in heaven?
    Would you help me stand if I saw you in heaven?
    I'll find my way through night and day,
    'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven.

    Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees.
    Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please.

    Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure,
    And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven.

    Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?
    Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven?
    I must be strong and carry on,
    'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven
    .
