    It’s been 12 years since we held you Matthew. Oh how you are missed here on Earth. Your mama still celebrates your birthday every year with cake and ice cream. You have 4 siblings now; Ally, Olivia, Rylee and RJ. You and RJ would have a great time playing together. I often wonder who you would have been as an adult if God would have left you here with us but he had better plans for you. I anticipate the day I get to heaven and you are waiting to see me. I know Grandma Nancy has been holding you close until we get there. I love you boy! Grammie Sandy.
