Greyson Todd Barkyoumb, age 1 month, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 11th. 2019. at UF Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL. Greyson was born on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 8:26pm to his loving parents Todd and Atalia Barkyoumb at UF Shands Children's Hospital. The short time we had with Greyson were the lightest and brightest days of our lives. From the way he glared into our eyes to the way he would give the best little kisses. His presence brought such happiness and a smile to anyone's face who came in contact with him. He gave others such inspiration and gave others a reason to be happy each day. Each morning when his maternal grandmother, Katy, got up for the day, Greyson was the first thing she thought of when she would think of reasons to be grateful and happy for life that day. Greyson's Grandma Lisa loved Greyson so much and when he came along she felt very so complete. She did everything in her power to give him all he ever would want for. He was the apple of his parents eyes. He was the sun to their sky. He was his mother's little sunshine He motivated his father even more each and everyday to support his family and work towards goals to give Greyson a great life so that he or his older brother Konner and wife, Atalia never had understand what hard times meant. A direct statement from his father, Todd, is that his children are his world and he's so glad he has nothing but great memories with Greyson. Greyson’s memory will always be kept alive by his family. We will continue to always be motivated and inspired by Greyson, and make him proud as we go through life. We want him to be remembered for all these qualities he was able to impress on peoples life. He made a great mark on this Earth in his short time here. We take comfort in knowing he is in Heaven and with other family members who have predeceased him who are able to meet him now and we know he is in good hands. We will always miss him but his impact on us and love we received from him is eternal and evergreen. Greyson mommy and daddy will always love you more than all the fish in the sea and stars in the sky. We love you baby boy, this is not goodbye but see you later in Heaven angel baby.
