Memorial website in the memory of your loved one




This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Tyson Micheal Ward who was born in Winchester, Ontario, Canada on February 04, 2000 and passed away of SIDS on May 12, 2000 . Tyson lived to be 3 months and 7 days old (98 days), and passed away 2 days before Mother's Day. We will remember him forever. Tyson weighed 7lbs 3.3oz and measured 20 inches long at birth, had dark hair and blue eyes. A true Angel!!

Attention SIDS Moms... If you have lost your precious baby, there's support out there.  If you are interested in joining a support group, please contact me!  *Big Hugs*





A million times we'll miss you,
a million times we'll cry.
If loving could have saved you,
you never would have died.
In life we love you dearly,
In death we love you too.
In our hearts there is an empty place,
no one could fill but you.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you never went alone.
for part of us went with you,
when God took you home.
His garden must be pretty,
he only wants the best.
He put his loving arms around you
and said: "My child, come home to rest". 






I have yet to write about the passing of Tyson.  It is a very hard subject for me so I have to wait until I'm ready.  Thanks for all the support I've received from my friends, family and other SIDS families.  I appreciate it greatly!


I would like to personally Thank everyone who takes the time to visit my son's memorial website.  Feel free to light a candle in his memory, and/or add to the "Tributes & Condolences" -If you upload a picture, please e-mail me so I know who it's coming from, Thanks.  Remember, SIDS HAPPENS with NO warning, NO symptoms, and IS NOT preventable
.  Please inform others.  It can happen to any baby.  I believed that my son COULD NOT die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome...('that only happens to unhealthy babies').  I was wrong,  Tyson was completely healthy and still died of S.I.D.S!!!  
Thanks with much love, from Barb

























We thought of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and the day before that, too.
We think of you in silence,
and often speak your name.
All we have are memories,
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
we have you in our hearts.











                                 

Death of a Child
by Sandy Eakle

"Sorry I didn't get to stay.
To laugh and run and play.
To be there by your side.
I'm sorry that I died.

God sent me down to be with you,
to make your loving heart anew.
To help you look up and see
Both God and little me.

Mommy, I wish I could stay.
Just like I heard you pray.
But, all the angels did cry
when they told little me goodbye.


God didn't take me cause He's mad.
He didn't send me to make you sad.
But to give us both a chance to be
a love so precious .. don't you see?

Up here no trouble do I see
and the pretty angels sing to me.
The streets of gold is where I play
you'll come here too, mommy, someday.

Until the day you join me here,
I'll love you mommy, dear.
Each breeze you feel and see,
brings love and a kiss from me. "
























"I Love You Tyson! I'm so Proud to be Your Mommy!" 

 















       










 
































 







































I am adding lyrics to songs that touch me so deeply when I hear them...They are all for you, Tyson!!






1.  Gone Away by the Offspring

Maybe in another life 
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can't deal, it's so unfair

And it feels, and it feels like
Heaven is so far away
And it feels, yeah it feels like 
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away

Leaving flowers on your grave
To show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary's
Can't bring back what's taken from me

I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

And it feels, and it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it stings, yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
now that you've gone away

Gone away, gone away, yeah yeah yeah... 

I reach to the sky
And call out your name
Oh please let me trade
I would

And it feels, and it feels like
Heaven's so far away 
And it feels, yeah it feels like 
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away

Gone away, gone away, yeah yeah yeah...





   


 





2.  Cowboy Take me Away by the Dixie Chicks

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly


I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of blue bonnets
In a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me I said

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you


I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon
And not see a building standing tall

I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
Except for maybe you
And your simple smile

Oh it sounds good to me
Yes it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can

Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you
Closer to you
Cowboy take me away.
Closer to you

















3.  I Don't Wan't to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith
(everytime I hear this song it brings me back to the night I lost you)

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure


Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
Cause I'd miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes
And thank God we're together
I just want to stay with you in this moment forever
Forever and ever

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
Cause I'd miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing

I don't want to miss one smile
I don't want to miss one kiss
I just want to be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just want to hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
Cause I'd miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
cuz I'd miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing









4.  Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change. 











5.  With Arms Wide Open by Creed

Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open


Well I don't know if I'm ready
To be the man I have to be
I'll take a breath, I'll take her by my side
We stand in awe, we've created life

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I'll show you everything ...oh yeah
With arms wide open..wide open


[Guitar Break]

If I had just one wish
Only one demand
I hope he's not like me
I hope he understands
That he can take this life
And hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world
With arms wide open...


With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I'll show you everything..oh yeah
With arms wide open....wide open
 













6.  What's This Life For? by Creed

Hurray for a child
That makes it through
If there's any way
Because the answer lies in you
They're laid to rest
Before they've known just what to do
Their souls are lost
Because they could never find
What's this life for
I see your soul, it's kind of gray 
You see my heart, you look away
You see my wrist, I know your pain
I know your purpose on your plane
Don't say a last prayer
Because you could never find
What's this life for
But they ain't here anymore
Don't have to settle the score
Cause we all live
Under the reign of one king 











7.  I'll Be Missing You by P. Diddy & Faith

Yeah... this right here (tell me why)
Goes out, to everyone, that has lost someone
That they truly loved (cmon, check it out)

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that 
Life aint always what it seem to beWords cant express 
what you mean to me
Even though youre gone, we still a team
Through your family, Ill fulfill your dream 
In the future, cant wait to see
If you open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend 
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When its real, feelings hard to conceal
Cant imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath 
I know you still living your life, after death

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
Ill be missing you
Thinkin of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
Ill be missing you 


Its kinda hard with you not around 
Know you in heaven smilin down 
Watchin us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Til the day we meet again

In my heart is where Ill keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts big I just cant define 
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Us in the 6, shop for new clothes and kicks
You and me taking flicks
Makin hits, stages they receive you on
I still cant believe youre gone

Give anything to hear half your breath
I know you still living youre life, after death
Chorus
somebody tell me why
On that morning
When this life is over
I know
Ill see your face

Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
Every night I pray, every step I take
every day that passes
Every move I make, every single day
is a day that I get closer 
to seeing you again
Every night I pray, every step I take 
we miss you big... and we wont stop
Every move I make, every single day 
cause we cant stop... thats right
Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day 





8. Wherever You Will Go by the Calling

so lately, been wondering who will be there 
to take my place
When i'm gone, you'll need love
To light the shadows on your face
If the great wave shall fall
It'd fall upon as all
And between the sand and stone
Could you make it on your own

[chorus:]
If i could, then i would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, i'll find out
The way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you
Through the darkest of your days 

If the great wave shall fall
It'd fall upon as all
Well i hope there's someone out there
Who can bring me back to you

[chorus]

Runaway with my heart
Runaway with my hope
Runaway with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart and your mind
I'll stay with you for all of time

[chorus]

If i could turn back time
I'll go wherever you will go
If i could make you mine
I'll go wherever you will go 








9. One Sweet Day
by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men

Sorry I never told you, all I wanted to say
And now it's too late to hold you
'Cause you've flown away, so far away

Never had I imagined living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
Together, one sweet day

Darling, I never showed you
Assumed you'd always be there
I took your presence for granted, but I always cared
And I miss the love we shared

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
Together, one sweet day

Although the sun will never shine the same
I'll always look to a brighter day
Lord, I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
Together, one sweet day

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
Together, one sweet day

Yes, we will one sweet day

Sorry I never told you, all I wanted to say














10.  Together Again
by Janet Jackson 

There are times when I look
Above and beyond
There are times when I feel
Your love around me baby
I'll never forget my baby
I'll never forget you

There are times when I look
Above and beyond
There are times when I feel
Your love around me baby
I'll never forget my baby

When I feel that I don't belong
Draw my strength
From the words when you said
Hey it's about you baby
Look deeper inside you baby
Dream about us together again
What I want us together again baby
I know we'll be together again 'cause

Everywhere I go
Every smile I see
I know you are there
Smilin' back at me
Dancin' in the moonlight
I know you are free
'Cause I can see your star
Shinin' down on me

Good times we'll share again
Makes me wanna dance
Say it loud and proud
All my love's for you
Always been a true angel to me
Now above
I can't wait for you to wrap your wings around me baby
Wrap them around me baby
Sometimes hear you whisperin'
No more pain
No worries will you ever see now baby
I'm so happy for my baby
Dream about us together again
What I want us together again baby
I know we'll be together again 'cause

Everywhere I go
Every smile I see
I know you are there
Smilin' back at me
Dancin' in the moonlight
I know you are free
'Cause I can see your star
Shinin' down on me

Good times we'll share again
Makes me wanna dance
Say it loud and proud
All my love's for you There are times when I look above and beyond

There are times when I feel you smile upon me baby
I'll never forget my baby
What I'd give just to hold you close
As on earth
In heaven we will be together baby
Together again my baby

Everywhere I go
Every smile I see
I know you are there
Smilin' back at me
Dancin' in the moonlight
I know you are free
'Cause I can see your star
Shinin' down on me

Everywhere I go
Every smile I see
I know you are there
Smilin' back at me
Dancin' in the moonlight
I know you are free
'Cause I can see your star
Shinin' down on me 





11.  Precious Child
by Karen Taylor-Good


In my dreams, you are alive and well
Precious child, precious child
In my mind, I see you clear as a bell
Precious child, precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart, there is hope
'Cause you are with me still

In my heart, you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

In my plans, I was the first to leave
Precious child, precious child
But in this world, I was left here to grieve
Precious child, my precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart there is hope
And you are with me still

In my heart you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child you left too soon,
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

God knows I want to hold you,
See you, touch you
And maybe there is a heaven
And someday I will again
Please know you are not forgotten until then

In my heart you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart 


12.  My Immortal


I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all of my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
Because your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I've held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
But now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I've held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I've held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me
