Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our daughter, Sydney Mikaylah who was born in Tampa, Florida on July 20, 2006 and passed away on July 20, 2006. We will remember her forever.

At 9:38 p.m., July 20th, Sydney Mikaylah Cobb was born weighing 6 lbs 12.1oz, and 20" long.  After a picture perfect pregnancy we lost Sydney Mikaylah to Velamentous Cord Insertion, and Vasa Previa.  It was and still is the most devastating thing that has ever happened.  

My sister found the Vasa Previa Foundation and after my father called we still don't understand why it had to happen, but do have a better understanding of what Vasa Previa is.  Please read Sydney's story and visit the International Vasa Previa Foundation sites.

An Angel Never Dies.

Don’t let them say I wasn’t born,
That something stopped my heart
I felt each tender squeeze you gave,
I’ve loved you from the start.

Although my body you can’t hold
It doesn’t mean I’m gone
This world was worthy, not of me
God chose that I move on.

I know the pain that drowns your soul,
What you are forced to face
You have my word, I’ll fill your arms,
Someday we will embrace.

You’ll hear that it was meant to be,
God doesn’t make mistakes
But that won't soften your worst blow,
Or make your heart not ache.

I’m watching over all you do,
Another child you’ll bear
Believe me when I say to you,
That I am always there.

There will come a time, I promise you,
When you will hold my hand,
Stroke my face and kiss my lips
And then you’ll understand.

Although I’ve never breathed your air,
Or gazed into your eyes
That doesn’t mean I never was,
An Angel never dies 



                     
God on His throne in heaven
Looked round at His flowers so fair
And then sought a blossom on earth
To add to those He had there
To be part of such heavenly Company
The bloom must be pure and sweet
And the little bud that was chosen
Was the child who was to play at our feet.
Sorrow is great at the loss of our child
At the parting with one we love
But the parting was made that our child might go
To brighten the heavens above.


PRECIOUS CHILD

Words and Music 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's 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
