Apr 11, 1989 - Jan 7, 2022
My son struggled with severe mood disorder. He struggled since he was young. He even struggled coming into this world. Doctors did not think he was going to make it. He was premature and at 35 weeks he was induced and weighed only 3.5 lbs.
Matthew was a very intelligent and bright young man. He was handsome with the bluest eyes. He loved to cook and was a chef. He had an infectious personality and always wanted to make people laugh. He was always helping less fortunate people.
I miss everything about him. His voice, his laugh, his smile. I wish I had a restart button. I want to start all over again with my boy.
