This memorial website was created in the memory of my beautiful baby boy, Finlay Acton who was born sleeping on October 27, 2006 We will miss him very much and remember him forever.
My Little Boy
Your little boy cries too much
My little boy makes no sound
Your little boy is warm to touch
Mine lies cold in the ground
Your little boy woke up today
My Angel never will
Your little boy can laugh and play
My little boy lies still
Your little boy makes you so proud
But just as proud as I
Cause though your boy will learn to walk
My little boy can FLY!
The stork who brought our Son to us
He must have got it wrong
He set out on his journey here
But turned and went back home
He discussed this with the Angels
Said “there must be some mistake”
“I need to get this baby there
Or surely hearts will break”
The Angels shook their heads at him
“So sorry but its true”
“God needs him here in Heaven and
There’s nothing we can do”
They told the stork “his life must end,
He mustn’t breathe at birth”
“God made it clear, he must come here
He’s far too good for Earth”

Finlay's Grave on his 1st Birthday
Finlay's 1st Birthday balloons
This is the cross that was put at his Grave on his 1st Birthday. It looks so beautiful there now.
This casket is called Moon-Baby and we picked this for Finlay because his nickname was Moon-Unit.
A beautiful picture made my friend Lecia in America, of our 2 Angels Finlay & McKenzie
Finlays baby Journal and below are his footprints and hand prints I put in it with a lock of his very long hair.
My Brother Scott cut this into the window sill at the hospital as they awaited Finlay's birth. At the time we didn't know if he was a boy or girl so he was known as Moon-Unit!
Finlay's Grave on his 1st birthday 27th October 2007
If I could have a lifetime wish,
A dream that would come true,
I'd pray to God with all my heart
for yesterday and you.
A thousand words can't bring you back;
I know because I've tried.
And neither will a million tears,
I know because I've cried.
You left behind a broken heart
And happy memories too.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
