Smallest Wingless...

Maddux Achilles Haggard
Delivered into this world, February 4th, 2005 
Received unto the Lord, February 10th, 2005


Dear son, we've been waiting for you
Thrilled beside ourselves that you've arrived
White coats came in, heads held low
Talked for a bit, shuffled outside

We closed the curtains,
Held each other,
And cried
We said hello at the same time that we said goodbye.

And smallest wingless, oh you came to us
Leaving as soon as you'd arrived
But sadness is just love wasted
With no heart to place it inside

We closed the curtains,
Held each other,
And cried
We said hello at the same time that we said goodbye.

We closed the curtains
Held on to one another
And cried
We said hello at the same time that we said goodbye.

Oh Maddux may you know the love you've given so many. If not for you that dreaded day I wouldn't be who I am today. You are an AMAZING young man and I can't wait for the day I spend eternity with you.

Your Mommy followed her heart and has helped so many like you wanted her to. You must be sooooo very proud of her.

Please come give visit her this season as her heart tries to make it through these days. Of course she and your family will always remember you but as they reflect on these days it's the weather outside, the still of the night, the days that pass that are harsh reminders that you'll never be in thier arms that make this time so hard.

May you always know my greatest pleasure is knowing you. You've changed me for the better.

Thank you Maddux,

Your "Auntie" Linda

Thinking of you and your family. Thank you for opening your heart and lives to create such a wonderful healing experience for families through the gift of photography. It started with one tiny baby who left a huge imprint on this world. Always remembered and forever in my heart.
