Cooper Anthony Morrow passed from this world moments before entering it on November 14, 2023, at Ozarks Healthcare, West Plains, Missouri, due to two congenital heart conditions, ectopia cordis and hypoplastic right heart syndrome. He was born with his dad’s red hair and his mom’s chin and while our hearts are broken, we take solace in knowing that he is resting in the arms of Jesus.
Matthew 19:14 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”
Love in Every Tear
O precious, tiny, sweet little one, you will always be to me.
So perfect, pure, and innocent, just as you were meant to be.
We dreamed of you and of your life, and all that it would be.
We waited and longed for you to come and join our family.
We never had the chance to play, to laugh, to rock, to wiggle.
We long to hold you, touch you now, and listen to you giggle.
I’ll always be your mother, He’ll always be your dad.
You will always be our child, The child that we had.
But now you’re gone…but yet you’re here, We’ll sense you everywhere.
You are our sorrow and our joy, There’s love in every tear.
Just know our love goes deep and strong, We’ll forget you never
The child we had, but never had, And yet will have forever!
