On Sunday the six-and-a-half-year-old lost his brave battle at Blair E. Batson Children's Hospital.
His family says he spent his short life in that hospital's NICU but ended his time on earth in his mother's arms.
On Tuesday morning his family and family friends came together to pay their respects at Myles' visitation and funeral in Ridgeland.
Afterwards a balloon release was held to honor the child's memory.
It was an emotional scene that has impacted the lives of everyone who has shared Myles' story. His grandmother, Kim Martin, sat down with NEWS CHANNEL 12 on Monday night to talk about her family's loss and her grandson's amazing fight for survival.
"Sometimes we pray for someone to come home and it doesn't mean our physical home, it means our heavenly home and that's exactly where he went," Martin said.
After spending so much time in the NIC-U some family members are hoping to raise money to help family's staying at Blair E. Batson more comfortable - something like an anchor house.
