Sadness Embraces Us

I just got news
that my nephew,
my sister's son, Matt,
just passed away.
This has devastated the
whole family.
I love you so much, Matt.
 
You were a devoted
husband
 
 
a protective and loving
brother
 
 
a wonderful son
 
(Imagery by Kimberly)
 
the best cousin


(Matt is the one holding the baby).
 
You were liked by
everyone.

 
Every time I see a yellow
flower, I will think
of you because of your
goodness.
 
 
Please say prayers
for my sister,
Matt's wife,
brother and sister.
Life is so hard
sometimes.

Dearest Sheri and family,

There are no words to express how sorry I am for your loss in your precious Matt's earthly passing. My heart breaks for you. My heart holds you. My heart loves you.

May God Bless Matt as He holds him in His eternal arms forever. To everything there is a season and a reason ~ and while we may not understand, we are all His children and will be together again one day. Until then, Matt's spirit will live on with each of you and beyond. With each breath you take - you breathe for him.

I love you Sheri. Always in my prayers......

Very sorry to hear this sad news Sheri. You will be there for your sister in what is a very difficult time. It is particularly hard when the younger generation passes before the parents, the cruelest thing. Thought and prayers to you all. xox

Sheri, I am so very sorry for your loss. It's just not the pattern of life for parents to lose their children. I know his wife and children are missing him terribly. I will hold you all in prayer ~ I understand the pain.
