Matthew had so much life to live yet and memories to make. He will be missed. To Sarah, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time to cope with the horrible loss of Matthew. Continue to stay close to family and friends, but most of all continue to rely on your faith in God and the hope that he provides in the resurrection...remembering that He will catch all of your tears and provide exactly what you need because he cares for you. 1John 5:7.
