Malone (Lone) was always willing to put a big smile on your face with his shining light. He could make you laugh like you wouldn’t believe. He loved to play with any kinds of toys, race cars, guitars, singing stuffed animals you name it. He loved his music just as much, his favorites were definitely Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette. He also considered himself a undercover cowboy cause if you ever saw him without his cowboy hats he must have been sleeping. He will be greatly missed by us all but we know where he’s at he is happy and with his mom and dad who he loved so dearly. He talked about seeing his mama all the time and now he’s strolling through Heaven with her waiting for the rest of his loved ones to join them. We will miss his smiling face more than you will ever know but it’s ok because this isn’t goodbye it’s just see you later.
