In Memoriam: Tyler David Jones
October 5, 1992 to September 18, 2009
Angel in the Stars…
A decade gone by.
You are my angel in the stars, pretty boy,
blue-eyed gorgeous, a heart of gold,
and your Disney Goofy toy.
I frequently look up
at the sparkling evening stars in the sky
And wonder, even after ten years,
Why he took you before there was
a proper “goodbye.”
I wasn’t ready for that last farewell,
I guess no one ever is,
so much more to do,
and so many words to learn how to speak.
Autism took your tongue,
but your smile was known by all that worked with you.
“Autism speaks” they say,
we simply have to listen.
Your kind, soft soul and butterfly kisses
will never be forgotten, dear son.
And you continue to touch so many lives
in many F.U.N. ways
especially mine, all my days!
I love you, Tyler Jones,
you are in God’s hands.
A beautiful Angel in the Stars forever…
Love, Mom (and Dad, Lindsey, and Austin)
