Matt you would be so proud of Myles.  He is out of the toddler stage and into a great young boy.
Myles is so smart, caring and helpful little guy!  Myles has decided to take Henry under his wing
and help him, protect him and teach him lots of things.  Like when they don't get what they
want they both give Grandma Kitty the Paw Patrol Puppy whine!!!  They are to funny!!

I think about you everyday,
and wonder why you could not stay.
It hurts me that you had to go,
how much no-one will ever know.
I pray someday that we may meet.
But until that day my sweet boy,
I will hold you in my heart,
until my time here is done.

Miss you Matt!
Love you!

You are where I cannot see you,
and your voice I cannot hear,
yet I know you walk beside me,
never absent, always near.
Love and miss you Matt!

Lots of Memories

This month is bittersweet!  Casey found a young man to spend the rest of her life with, Travis.  He is very good to Casey and to Myles.  I didn't have to worry about that promise I made you.  Just like you told me.  You knew Casey would fine the right good person to marry.  Travis is a very caring, hardworking, dependable, reliable, helpful, tall and handsome!  He will do right by Casey and Myles.  Our family is very
proud to invite Travis into our family also!  On June 17, 2016 Casey and Travis got married.  Myles just loves having Travis around!  Myles adores Travis!  Here is a family picture on their wedding day.

Matt you would also be proud to know you have a new Nephew.  Samuel Matthew was born to Jenny and
Mike on June 3, 2016.  Henry has a brother!  Henry is really very good with Sam.  Henry on the most part
continues to play with his toys and doesn't bother about his brother.  Every so often he does need to hug
or kiss his brother.  So you do have to watch him because he is not so good with gentle yet.  He is doing
much better though. 

Samuel Matthew
You would be very proud of your son.  He is very smart, sensitive, likes to be a joker once in awhile (just like you use too!)  He loves playing with your match box cars
and truck.  He likes going outside collecting eggs, playing in the sprinkler and playing in the rocks.  We go on lots of walks to see the sheep!  Also he says he wants to visit his Daddy so we walk up to your headstone.

Had to much spaghetti for lunch.  Needed a bath!

Also this Month Natie proposed to Ksenia!  They are getting married June 3, 2017.

 Nate and Ksenia are so excited to be married.  They have the church, hall and photographer
already done!  So happy to see Nate figure out his life!  At the same time Nate was proposing to Ksenia,
Brianna in Florida was getting proposed to too!  She is getting married next year, April 22, 2017.

My Wonderful Son
Of all the special gifts in life
However great or small
To have you as my Son
Was the greatest gift of all.
A special time
A special face
A special Son
I can't replace,
With an aching heart
I whisper low
I miss you Son
And love you so.

We all miss and love you, Matt!

Matt's Heavenly Birthday

It is so hard to day to day missing your son.  When April 19th comes around that day just is a little harder.  Thank Heaven for family.  We all try to get together and spend the day having fun instead of being home sad by ourselves. 

Matt was and still is such an inspiring young man!  He was taken from us so young in his life.  God certainly has a plan for everyone.  We may not agree or just don't understand but he has a plan!

Here is a good way to explain some of my feelings.

I had my own notion of grief.
I thought it was a sad time
That followed the death of someone you love.
And you had to push through it
To get to the other side.'
But I'm learning there is no other side.
There is no pushing through
But rather,
There is absorption.
And grief is not something that you complete.
But rather you endure.
Grief is not a task to finish,
And move on,
But an element of yourself-
An alteration of your being.
A new way of seeing,
A new definition of self.

Casey, Travis and Myles

Fun was had by all that day!  We miss you so much Matthew Allen!
Heaven Just could not Wait
Mom, Why do you cry?
Dad, Why weep?
The angels up here,
Are so loving and sweet.
What a beautiful place,
No sadness or fears.
And whatever you ask,
God always hears.
His love surrounds me,
I am not alone.
I am comforted and loved,
I am happy at home.
So, here for you,
I'll patiently abide.
Keeping our mansion ready,
Warm and cozy inside.
I'm very close by,
And in your hearts I will stay.
I'm not really gone,
I'm just a heartbeat away.
The angels were singing,
As they opened the gates.
As you see, for me,
Heaven just could not wait!

What a cutie!!

Myles has been enjoying his one day at 3K this year!!  He maybe doesn't like to sing upfront in church to much!   He uses his time to wave to Mommy!! He is so cute! 

Matt you wouldn't believe the imagination he has!  You can tell they read a lot to him!
I just love listening to his stories!  There are dinosaurs that live by his house, he has been driving trains and he talks about puppies coming to his house!  This is just a few examples of the stories Myles tells me!!  Myles also told me at the lunch table that he
is getting married.  I was waiting for him to tell me what little girl he was marrying but
he said he is marrying, "Mommy & Travis"!  He is always listening!!

Here is Myles telling everyone his alphabet letters
he decorated!

Here is Myles pointing out the different projects he made!
Happy Valentine's Day form Myles!!!

Matt we miss you so much!!!
Always in our hearts!
