Monte Dru was the fourth son and sixth child of Dale Roscoe Southard (1930-2012) and Yoby Angeline Holly (1936-2011). Thank you God for the four short years we had with this unique, outrageously funny, extremely loving child. The day he died the world froze in time for those who loved him and as it slowly started to turn was never again on the right axis...and the holes in many broken hearts never sealed back up.

Little Angels - Author Unknown

When God calls little children
to dwell with him above,
We mortals sometime question
the wisdom of his love.
For no heartache compares with
the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world,
seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to his fold,
So He picks a rosebud,
before he can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so he takes but a few
To make the land of Heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still
somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be "Goodbye."
So when a little child departs
we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children,
Angels are hard to find.

When a parent dies we lose a piece of our past but when a child dies we lose a piece of our future." - excerpt from Fathers Feel Too by Andrew Don
