Infant sin's death

For the record, SCOTT GERARD SHACKELTON died at age two days and is buried at St. Mary's Cemetery in Oakland CA. He was named after Sir Robert Falcon Scott, Sir Ernest Shackelton's partner on the early Antarctic British Expeditions, and St. Gerard, Patron of Expectant Mothers in the Catholic faith. His small infant's coffin was carried to his grave site by his father, Leland James Shackelton and his mother Mary Lecesne Shackelton. He died of Hyland membrane desease. His parents had named him in expectation of his growing to manhood with a combinations of names that he could be proud of and from which he could have drawn inspiration for his own life. His siblings, who have accomplished the same inspirational qualities of life, are Stephen Shackelton, Mary Lee Moore and James Shackelton.

Lest the world forget, this wee infant died before he had a chance to achieve his life's potential, a realistic achievment consistant with that which has been achieved by his brothers and sister. There is no limit to our imagination as to what that might have been, given his ancestry. May our dear, sweet baby rest in peace, free of the debilitating lung desease that what have rendered him and cripple, had he survived. God bless our son, Scott Gersrd Shackelton.
