In Loving Memory of Our Special Boy
Arlo Michael Scott O'Brien
Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, "let the little children come to me and do not
hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of Heaven.
Arlo will forever be loved and remembered by his parents, Robert and Lunden; sister, Vienna and brother, Kelvin; grandparents, Michael and Diane O'Brien, Heather Burlet, Francis Burlet (Paula); great-grandparents, Doreen McNair, Anita and Bert Kunkle and Jack and Lorna O'Brien, as well as by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. From the bottom of our hearts, we are grateful to theteam on the Labour and Delivery Ward at the Sturgeon Community Hospital.
And yet the beating of your heart was silent
The breath of life from rosebud lips not felt.
Your silken lashes did not flutter,
Unopened eyes never held our gaze.
The grasp of your small fingers still and without strength
Your arms will never reach for us, feet carry you to your embrace
And we will never hear the music of your voice
Or know the sweet fragrance of your skin.
When did the tide of death steal you away?
If we could breathe our own life's breath
Bequeath you minutes days years; we would.
But we are not the author or deliverer of life
We cannot solve the mystery of spirit and soul
Or remove the shroud of death that holds you still
Sweet child whose life will only ever live within our dreams
We speak your name upon the wind and it is carried far away
But you remain imprinted on our hearts
