Thoughts and prayers are with the family / Nancy Whitley-Garner (Great Great Aunt )
Love and prayers to each family member as you remember Matt on his birthday. He is rejoicing in heaven. The ones left behind are the ones who hurt the most because there is a void in our hearts. Keep the memories tucked in the corner of your hearts and smile and rejoice as you remember those happy moments.
I miss and love you every day of my life. I can't imagine how lucky Papa and I were to have you in our lives. You owned us from the first day and still owned us when God called you home. You were always so considerate and so very kind. You were just born an old soul and through your eyes we could see all the way to your soul.
You always made everyone do the best for you because you just brought that out in every one you met and touched.
Blade still sees your mom alot. Christopher is still having a hard time.Take care of your mom she still has hard times without her son.
I love you baby and always will. Your footprints are imprinted on my heart.
footprints/ Aunt Valerie (aunt)
One night a woman had a dream.She dreamed she was walking along the beach with the lord.Across the flashed scenes from her life.For each scene,she noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;one belonging to her,and the other belonging to the lord.When the last scene of her life passed in front of her,she looked back at the footprints in the sand.She noticed that many times along the path of her lofe was only one set of footprints.She also noticed that it happened at the lowest and saddest times in her life.
This really bothered her and she questioned the lord about it."Lord,you said that once I decided to foolow you,you'd walk with me all the way.But i have decided that during the most troublesome times in my life.there is only one set of footprints.I don't understand why when i needed you the most you would leave me."The lord replied,"My daughter.My precious child,I love you.and I\ would never leave you.During your times of trial and suffering,when you see only one set of footprints,it was then that I carried you.

A NOTE FROM HEAVEN
If i could write from Heaven,this is what I'd say.Please don't miss me so much,I'm with you throughout your day.You may not see or hear me,but if you're quiet and still,you may just feel my presence;BECAUSE,in Heaven,there is free will.Don't worry for the day,it will come and go as planned,Enjoy each moment you are given,keep worry from your hand.Keep sorrow to a minimum;For if Heaven you could see,You'd know I'm safe and happy.I did not cease to be.Moments in time are brief,until we'll be together again,as Eternity lasts forever,our lives,they have no end.

Happy Birthday on one of God' Angels / Memaw
Darling Matt - I just cannot believe that it has been 2 yrs. I can remember so many good times that you, papa and I had. The many trips we took, the many spend the week ends at the red house.
I watched Barney more than I wanted to...but after all it was for you.
I am so glad your pain is gone and you are whole again in the arms of Jesus. I miss you every day...and love you with all of my heart.
Forever in my heart and soul

With Love / Julie, Mum To Angel Ben Deeley (Loving your wonderful family )
Hi Matt, I think of you so often sweetheart, I know so much about your amazing life and also your suffering and untimely death. All that I have learned about you has been so filled with love as it has been from your wonderful mom and your lovely memaw. They love and miss you so much honey and I so know how they are feeling, every minute of every day.
The pain and suffering that you and Ben had to go through will be etched on the hearts of all that love both of you forever. We will never understand why this had to happen to two such sweet, caring young men. Life is indeed very cruel.
However, we will all be forever grateful for the precious years that we did have. Nothing can take that away and our memories will keep us going, and also the knowledge that one day we will all be together again. Love you Matt. x
Sindi, I am so sad that we have not been able to keep up the email contact that we had previously, and I pray that one day soon this will be reinstated. Until then, know that you are always in my thoughts and in my heart. I will never forget our time together last December, it was so very, very special. Knowing Ben has a memorial brick with his name on in Charlotte is so special to me, I know he would love it! Thank you honey, you were there for me last year when I was in the darkest pit of despair and I want you to know I will always be here for you. God bless, much love. x
Susan (Memaw). Thank you so much for the wonderful words you leave on Ben's website. You and Gene are very much in my thoughts and my heart. I see the pain and anguish that my own parents go through and how much it hurts me to see them suffering and hate to think of you feeling the same. Nothing will ever bring Ben and Matt back to us, we must cherish our memories of them and be thankful for the time we did get to spend with them. Matt is so so lucky to have such a wonderful, caring, loving grandmother. I know he will always be with you, wherever you are. I will never forget the kindness that you and Gene showered upon myself, David and Ashley last December and will be forever grateful and thankful. You truly are one of a kind. My love always x
Matt, you will always be number one if my life. I knew you before you were born and I was there when you drew your first breath. Your mom and I spent times together with you going to IDP meetings and to Shriners Hospital in South Carolina to all the visits to Atlanta Childrens healthcare....you were my light....the person who lit my days and made me feel like the most wonderful Memaw in the world. Your smile led all the way to your soul.....you were a good friend to so many kids....your mom always hears such nice things people are still saying about you. I guess Grandpa Winston and Great Grama Eubanks are there with you.....and Ben.....Aunt Brenda and Cynid and your precious granpa Fisher.....Honey, you were an angel on earth and you have now fulfilled your destiny that God had made for you. I will meet you in heaven one day and what a glorious day that will be.....I love you and miss you so much my precious Matt.
Thank you for the years we had and I praise God for the time I had with you and what a joy you brought to so many lives..... I love you today, I loved you yesterday and I will love you to the ends of time.
Sleep my precious Angel....your pain is gone...you have precious Angel Wings.....xxxxxooooooooo
just a visitor / Lisa G. (none)
I did not know Matt. Here I am waiting for one of my children to come home and I was looking up something in the internet, which led me to this beautiful site. As a mother, I am so very sorry for your loss. It would be wrong for me to say that I know how you feel. I do not. Just a few months before Matt was born, my daughter was born. I'm sure that really nothing can ease your grief...we do not know each other but I will pray for you.
This is such a nice site, I haven't heard of it before. I will pass the memory -of information on to others that I know that would probably appreciate the opportunity to create a loving memorial website as well.
Again, please accept my deepest condolences. Through some of the things I read and viewing the pictures, it's so evident that Matt was loved deeply...and still is. He has, undoubtedly, touched many lives... both directly and indirectly. I know I will never forget visiting this site.

New a day goes by I don't think of you / Memaw Read >>
New a day goes by I don't think of you / Memaw
There is never a day goes by that I don't think of you. Months ago
Granpa Winston was in his pool room sitting in his chair when
Gramma Diane came in and asked him if anything was wrong and
he said no, that he was just talkin to Matt. I passed away Tuesday
morning at 5am, but I guess you knew that because you helped him
find the light. Take care of him.....He is a peace and no longer inflict-
ed with alzheimers...it took his life away just like a brain tumor.
I miss you everyday and just wish with all my heart and soul that you were still with us.
There is such an emptiness since you passed and void that will always be there.
I cannot tell you how proud papaw and I were of you and how we cherish your memories. We played such a large roll in your life and were with you thru your growing into the wonderful young man you became.
I find it hard to go to Hobby Lobby, cause my partner is not there with me.....Shoot....couldn't we spend money?
