Matt I still feel sometimes you are going to walk through the garage door and
I will get to see you again!  I know that is not possible but I do feel you around
me alot!  I love you and miss you so much. When ever I see a blue dragonfly I
think of you spreading your joy and smile to everyone!
 
 
The Dragonfly
 
Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads,
thee lived a little water beetle in a community of water beetles.
They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond with few
Disturbances and interruptions.
 
Once in a while, sadness would come to the community
when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad
and would never be seen again.  They knew when this happened;
their friend was dead, gone forever.
 
Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge
to clim up that stem.  However, he was determined that he
would not leave forever.  He would come back and tell his friends
what he had found at the top.
 
Whe he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the
surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so warm,
that he decided he must take a nap.  As he slept, his body changed and
when he woke up he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly
with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying.
 
So, fly he did!  And, as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole
new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never
known existed.
 
Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking
by now he was dead.  He wanted to go back to tell them, and explain
to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before.
His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.
 
But, his new body would not go down into the water.  He could
not get back to tell his friends the good news.  then he understood
that their time would come, when they, too, would
know what he now knew.  So he raised his wings and flew off
into his joyous new life!
 
Miss you Matt!  Spread your wings and we will see you one day!

Holidays can be hard with out you, Matt!

 This is what I have to keep in mind:

"Mom,
"I'll just wait in heaven,
'Til we meet again.
I know you miss me
Just remember I am free.
Free from pain and sorrow,
God's love fills each tomorrow.
My love's in your heart,
We'll never be apart.
Cherish the love we share,
Remember how much I care.
Someday we'll be together.
Because love lives forever!
So I'll just wait in heaven.
'Till we meet again."

Matthew's 3rd Heavenly Birthday!

Hi Matt,

All of us got together for the day so we would not be sad on our own!  We had a great day at Country Inn springs water park!  It is the best to share with our family on this day thinking of you!  It is hard to believe April 19th 3 years ago you left this earth to be with our Lord!  Although we would have prefer to have you here much longer I know God has a plan!  It does make it easier to know that you are in the best place ever!  But I still miss you so!!  Here is some pictures of our day!

Myles enjoys the water park!

Casey and Myles snuggling.

Myles and Uncle Nate playing with the water!

Although we had a great day at the water park it didn't go without you on our minds the whole day!
You are very missed by your family and friends! 
 
 
Matt
Of all the special gifts in life
However great or small
To have you as my Son
Was the greatest gift of all.
A special time
Aspecial face
A special Son
I can't replace,
With an aching heart
I whisper low
I miss you Son
And love you so!
