Michael Derrick Melton was our precious gift from God, that we only had in our lives for a short 11 weeks and 3 days. He is the son of Cheryl Rhona Babcock (Melton) Wilson and Donald Gary Melton. He is survived by his older brother Charles Jeremy Melton and he has a younger brother Adam Bradley Melton that was born the following year. He is also survived by his grandparents Ann and Gerald Babcock of Franklin, TN. He was born at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, TN on August 15, 1980. He was just beginning to smile. He loved to look at the goldfish that swam in our aquarium and taste bits of butter cookies that his older brother, Jeremy would give him. He had a benign tumor that was located in the left ventricle of his heart. He had open heart surgery at 5 weeks of age at Vanderbilt Hospital. They sewed him back up and sent him home to die. Even though the doctors at Vanderbilt were wonderful, there was nothing that they could do. He died on November 3, 1980 at home in my arms.

He touched many lives during his short time here. He blessed ours. We will see him again. The Bible promises it. In the meantime, I have the best babysitter in the world, Jesus.
