Let the memory of Maddox be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Maddox Derkosh. I did not know him or his family but his passing touched my heart to create this memorial. He was a cherished child that was loved by his parents, friends and family very much! Maddox loved to celebrate life's moments, especially birthdays. He loved sandcastles on the beach and toy trucks and tractors. He loved to giggle and was a happy child. We will forever remember him and cherish the memory's of his life. He was treasured by many and is now a heavenly angel. He is in God's gentle hands now, a beautiful paradise. Maddox will be delighted in heaven to be reunited with his family once they are called home ♥ Until then we will hold the innocence and beautiful life of Maddox safe in our ♥  Feel free to write a memorial tribute for this precious angel or a personal story. This memorial is a place for healing and comfort. God Bless ♥

They hold out a promise of a paradise earth being restored as God intended  when he created man & put him in a paradise.(Isaiah 55:11) In the very near future God will bring back those who have died(John 5:28,2).

"Maddox Derkosh -For if we believe that Jesus died and rose, so too will God, through Jesus, bring with him those who have fallen asleep."  As Christians we are born to hope even in the darkest of moments.  One of the core teachings of our faith is the belief in the resurrection; that after suffering and death comes new and eternal life."
