Vegas Malakai Hathaway

Vegas Malakai Hathaway, On July 4th, 2016, our little angel joined the angels in Paradise. He was a fearless little soldier who loved fireworks, music, and most of all food. He was passionate about his toys and his family. He would hug the microwave which we all called his girl-friend. Born October 11, 2014, he was a blessing, a beautiful sweet baby boy. We named him Vegas Malakai Hathaway. He came into this world with beautiful blue eyes and the heart of a lion. His beautiful golden locks were truly something to envy. With charm and enthusiasm he taught us life lessons. He taught us second by second the truth in the statement, “Life is not the breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away.” With a new understanding of what life can be his imprint in our hearts is divine. He struggled with some health issues and through it all he never let it affect his ability to smile, or damper his spirit. In Vegas’ presence you couldn’t help but exude joy and love. It was never hard for him to gain the admiration of those he interacted with. Like a firework he came bursting into our life with an explosion of love lessons. As his mother I am proud to say he exited this world with the same explosion of life love lessons. He leaves behind his loving parents, Ana Manning & Huron Hathaway, and his proud “BIG” brother Julian Manning. There are five family generations and numerous friends mourning the loss of this sweet perfect baby boy. All of these generations have their own definitive moments to cherish and be thankful for. We are heavy hearted knowing that our angel is no longer in the flesh. However we must have faith that his soul and spirit are enjoying his new paradise until we are reunited. Funeral Services will be held at 12 Noon on Saturday July 16, 2016 at the Milam Funeral Home Chapel in Newberry, with a visitation for one hour prior. Interment will follow in Evergreen Cemetery in Gainesville, FL.
