Today marks 3 months since our beloved Matthew left us.
We grieve, we remember and in time we will heal.
Kay, Bob and Delaney- you are so loved and in our prayers every day so God can help you through this.
Kay- I hope you can find comfort in this poem…

Oh Mother, my mother
I touch your tears,
invisible fingers soothing your skin
I know you think of me so often
in the day, in the night, in your dreams
going into an empty nursery
knowing I’ll never be there
but I am…in your heart, in your soul,
I shall always be
for you gave so unselfishly of yourself
Inside of you, you created
such a world for me
a world of laughter, of love
of sadness, of sorrow
every emotion people come to know
you shared with me.
And even though I may never feel your arms around me
I felt your heart beating,
like a lullaby, singing me to sleep.
and your spirit giving me a safe haven
already protecting me, nurturing me
preparing me for things to come
But sometimes the journey of life pulls souls apart
and yes, I had to go on to another place.
I wish I could stay
I wish this was a decision I could make
and I know you do too.
Know this, wherever you are:
I will always remember
that yours was the first love
the first joy, the first soul
I will ever know
you gave me the courage to
go on in my journey
I hope I can do the same for you
Your heart beat will always call me to you.

    We are always here for you and love you. I know the upcoming holidays will be difficult, so please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you. I will be home late the 21st into Rochester through the morning of the 28th. If you need to me to bake, babysit, talk to, wash clothes… whatever. I hope you know that I am here and will be thinking about you and your family and Sue and her family the most during this holiday.

    I hope the thoughts and prayers of your family and their love for you and your family help ease the sorrow you feel. Though it feels endless- time will ease the pain you feel today. I am hear to listen- in Kansas City is always a place to come for love and support ( a break from that little love- cause you know I’ll take her to play). We love you!
