Anderlik, Cooper John

Cooper John Anderlik

October 1, 2021 - October 3, 2021

Jeremiah 1:5 – Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.

Cooper John Anderlik was diagnosed with trisomy 18 that statistically gave Cooper a very low percentage to meet his loving parents Scott and Ashley Anderlik. Without knowing what Cooper’s future would hold, Scott and Ashley started making memories with Cooper while in the womb. Cooper truly enjoyed the nightly bedtime books with his sister Rylie. He would routinely make his presence known by punching and kicking his mother’s belly. So much so, the entire family could see her shirt move mid story. Cooper was also a huge fan of root beer floats. One night our family of four sat on the truck bed under the stars and watched Cooper kick while Ashley downed the late-night treat for Cooper. On our weekly ultrasounds, Cooper was always very active showing he was still growing and truly enjoying his time in Ashley’s spacious belly.

Against the odds that Cooper John was given, he was born on October 1, 2021 at the special time of 12:04 p.m. The next two days were spent in Scott and Ashley’s arms receiving endless amounts of love. Cooper’s great smile was amazing to see when his sister Rylie held his hand and gave him his very own stuffed animal “Puppy”. Cooper’s favorite book was the Little Engine That Could. Cooper was small but strong. He was compassionate and gave his parents the much-desired time to be with him. Cooper will always be remembered and never forgotten. Cooper reminded his parents to cherish the time we have and most importantly love.   

Cooper is survived by his parents, Scott and Ashley Anderlik of Allen, Texas; sister, Rylie Anderlik of Allen, Texas; uncle, Mark Anderlik and wife, Julie of McKinney, Texas; aunt, Dr. Lisa Cheek and husband, Mark of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; uncle, Austin Thompson of Waco, Texas; grandparents, John Anderlik and wife, Karen of McKinney, Texas and Stephen Thompson and wife, Sandra of Waco, Texas; great-grandmother, Alice Nussman; and great-grandfather, Edward Thompson.

We will continue to pray for Scott, Ashley and Rylie along with those who love him so deeply. What a precious little boy Heaven received with grandparents who have passed awaiting his arrival. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Luke 18.16. Wynn & Ellen Watson, October 6, 2021
