  2. I thank you for giving me each moment shard. I\’ll miss you,and truly am proud to call you my friend.You\’ll always be in my prays.We Love You, Chocolaet_No_No

  3. Elbert and Carolyn I am so sorry for your loss. I did not have the privilege of knowing Matthew but I loved him anyway because I love you. You and your family are in my prayers and thoughts during this time. I love you, Ann

  4. My name is Annette Pegues. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to each of you. Often times, many wonder as to why death happens? They feel that in time God will provide the answer. Through his word the Bible He has given us the reason why. At Genesis 2:16,17 it states: And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man: “From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction. 17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die.” Also at Romans 5:12 it states: That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned-. So here the above Bible texts helps us to understand that due to the disobedience of the first human couple, this is why we suffer the heartache of losing our loved ones to death. Even so, our Heavenly Father has promised that the day will come in which all those in the memorial tombs (graves) will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) He promised too, that He will swallow up death forever and wipe away the tears of sorrow from our eyes. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:1-5) We can look forward to his words being fulfilled, because at Titus 1:2 it says of God that He cannot lie. It is a gurantee that all his promises will come true. May each of you continue to find comfort in Him during this difficult time With Sympathy, Annette

  5. I didnt know him,but I knew of him.I have no memories,But his brother has told me many times, of the many times they have shared.I wish I had met Matthew,But I will hold his brothers memmories in my heart as well.May Jesus comfort you all in this time,Love Dianne

  6. My first memory of Matt, was the day he was born. He was born in WIlmington Community Hospital where I worked. I came into report, and I really got ribbed by the other nurses. Mom had gone into the delivery room and taken Matt out to the lobby to share him with Dad, as he was left un-attended in the delivery room…….only one nurse in labor and delivery, and she had taken Carolyn to her room…Needless to say, the nurse was frantic as Matt had disappeared. She found him with MOM and DAD, and then had to close that delivery room, as Mom had contaminated it by going in. I went to see Matt after report, and thought he was so precious. Carolyn was doing well, and happy the labor was over. Mom and Dad were happy, they got a special moment with their new grandson. What a great day that was. Tne beginning of a new life, our Matthew…….

  7. Dear Carolyn and family. I don\’t know about tomorrow, but I do know of the grief we share today. I pray your tomorrows are filled with lots, and lots of sunshine. Love, Jim & Ehtel

  8. Dear Uncle Matt, Although we didnt grow up being close to you,we always knew who you were. We will never forget the few memories we have had with you. You will forever be in our hearts and thoughts each and every day! Do us a favor while your away,watch over your big bro Jim and grandma for us! Love, Marina,Ursula & Gabrielle Grandma dont worry hes in a better place walking on the streets of gold wishing we could be with him. Are thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of grief. God Bless and Take Care! Dad uncle Matt will never leave your side. We Love you and are here for you at your time of grief and sorrow!

  9. As we grew older, we grew apart like so many. We didn\’t get to spend much time as life went on, moving to different parts of the country. But through our childhood; the days at Grandma\’s house, visits at Harbor Hills and when you came to our house, a strong bond was created – Family. Matt, you led a very courageous battle! Thank the Lord that the days of your suffering are over and you are in Heaven with our Lord and Grandma and Grandpa. My thoughts and prayers to Aunt Carolyn and family. Pam
