    Matty, there are not adequate words to describe the profound heartbreak felt by your loss. You have worked hard, loved hard & given with all you’ve got. I am so blessed to have had you as my Sister Soldier Mom to our boys. You have been there for me through so much…I honestly don’t know what I would have done without you. I pray you are sleeping sweetly in heaven. You will be missed beyond measure, loved with whole hearts and your memory will eternally live on in our hearts and through your beautiful children.
    Christopher, Emily & Michael, there aren’t words to express how so very sorry I am for your loss. Even that isn’t nearly adequate. Please know, I love you and am here for you always. Know your Mom is with you…Always…Never more than a heartbeat away…
    They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it.
    Death cannot kill what never dies.
    Nor can spirits ever be divided, that love and live in the same divine principle, the root and record of their friendship.
    If absence be not death, neither is theirs.
    Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still.
    For they must needs be present, that love and live in that which is omnipresent.
    In this divine glass they see face to face; and their converse is free, as well as pure.
    This is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present, because immortal…(William Penn)

    We Remember Them

    By: Sylvan Kamens & Rabbi Jack Riemer

    At the rising sun and at its going down, we remember them.

    At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, we remember them.

    At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember them.

    At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember them.

    At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of the autumn, we remember them.

    At the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember them.

    As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as we remember them.

    When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember them.

    When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember them.

    When we have decisions that are difficult to make, we remember them.

    When we have joy we crave to share, we remember them.

    When we have achievements that are based on theirs, we remember them.

    For as long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as, we remember them.

    To Mattys family and friends. Although I only new Matty through work and the occasional pass by as she would be coming up the stairs after a long days work and I would be going down on my way in to work she would still smile and say have a good night. So sad for anyone to lose a love one especially so tragically soon. From my family to yours our deepest condolences.
