I can't fully imagine what you are going through, and I'm so sorry that you are. I know it's been a difficult day. God will hold him until you get to again. Psalms 34:18. Much love and prayers - the Lusks

The Lord called an angel home. Matthew was too precious for this world. I look forward to seeing him by the master’s side at my homecoming.

There is no greater pain than a mother losing a child. Saying I am sorry for your loss does not even put a dent in it. I can tell you that the pain stays. You will have good days and bad days and after some time the good ones out number the bad. Keep your family and faith close to help you get through the min., hours, and days that are to follow. God Bless you and your family
