It's been said part of living is dying. What if you never got the chance to really live. I just found out this morning that my perfectly healthy 23 year old brother never woke up this morning. GOD has called hime home. I know that he is in a better place and has been spared a lot of woes of this life. However my sweet baby brother never got the chance to truely live. He graduated high school and had a great relationship with a girl he really loved. But never got to get married. He never got to have any children. He never got to really get into a career or go on a vacation. I sometimes think that this life isnt fair. But then again, I'm sure we have all thought that. I do know that I love him so much and he will be greatly missed. He was a twin. So then this makes me think about what my other baby brother is going through right now. How is he gonna feel on his birthday? A special day he shared with someone that was closer to him than anyone. I think about my poor mother and all she has had to endure in this life. Will we ever get a break? Will any of us ever really get a break? Maybe I am just letting out some of my emotions right now. The one gift I have been given(writting) is what will help me through this now. I love you baby brother. I will always love and miss you. Please look down on Mom and let her know that some how, she will get through this. Let her know that you are still with her and will always look out for her and care for her. Until we meet again, I love you Matt.

this is a sad story and i sobbed and mourn for this... huhuhu... unexpected mishap in life... that is the most unacceptable trial if it will happen to me. But, this is life, we just only borrowed and enjoyed it for a limited time... yet, we dont know when it will end up... sometimes, its hard to accept the reality and we shade it inorder for loosen our depression or craving... this is it, we live in this world and for a certain period of time... we should be thankful enough for this experience and accept what ever happens... that life is just a race... that point at any point in the race you do not know what will happen...

I am so sorry for your loss. There is an old saying that has often been told to me. God only gives you what he thinks you can handle. Where as I have often replied I wish I wasn't trusted to handle so much! Your brother was too young to go this early. It will be hard for everyone I know, but time passes and we remember the good times we had with them.

I'm sorry to see your loss. Since I know that nothing I say will make you feel any better I will leave it at that. I hope you feel better more every day! Good luck during your time of sorrow.

Oh that is so sad, for you, I believe to that he is in a better place and will be standing behind you where ever you go now, some people live a longer life only to suffer in a cruel way before they go to where your brother is now, he will be forever young in your heart and he didn't suffer one second...I feel your pain it is a hard thing to try and get over but if you keep believing he is in a better place you will be ok...thinking of you my friend.

sillymom78 I am sad to hear you lost your brother at such a' young age.thats really so hard, he had his whole life yet' but it happens and we dont know why so we have to accept' it. I lost my little girl when she was only eight years old and it was very hard, but day by day I finally got through it.You say he has a twin, I can imagine how hard that will be on Matt's twin as the bond is so strong there between twins. 'My prayers and condolences to you and yours sillymom. take care and God Bless.
