If you could send Matthew a letter or message what would it say?
On March 17,1985 in a delivery room in Barberton , Ohio I watched you take your first breath. You were perfect. The second I held you in my arms I knew you would own my heart forever. I watched you grow from a sweet little boy to the amazing young man you became.You were the most honest, sincere, hardworking and caring son a mother could hope for.
When you became sick with cancer your courage and strength amazed us all. You suffered so terribly but never gave up. You became our "Warrior" ! You inspired so many through your heartwrenching battle.
On December 12, 2015 in a hospital room in Pittsburgh, Pa I watched you take your last breath. My heart went with you. I don't know why God only let me keep you for 30 short years but I am so blessed that he chose me to be your Mother.
They say time heals....it definitely does NOT.
They say "he's still here you just can't see him...
It's not the same.
I know you are here watching over us. You are an angel now.
But what hurts the most is when I say " I love you Matthew" and will never again in this lifetime get to hear you say " I love you too Mom" .
So until God puts you back in my arms again I want to say " Thank you for making me so proud,Thank you for being my precious son and most of all Thank you for being YOU" .
And until then "May God Hold You In The Palm Of His Hand" .
With all my heart forever
