"Danksagung. Ein anderer ohne dich. Noch so leer. Die Welt ist leer. Vier Jahre und nichts hat sich geändert. Ich kann immer noch nicht atmen. Ich weine noch jeden Tag. Ich warte immer noch aufzuwachen. Das ist mein einziger Wunsch, aufzuwachen. Ich liebe dich. Kann nicht helfen, dass ein Teil. Aber ich tue."

"Thinking of you today, Mat. I carry your memorial card in my wallet. I have another one on our frig along with the memorial cards for my brother and grandmother. The memorial cards are there as a tradition for those we love,  but are not needed to remember good times shared together with our families. Those memories are etched in my heart. I think of you every day. You are missed. You are loved. God bless."

"Today I found your horn.  The one from the game so long ago.  You, Ben, the team, the metro.  Stealing poster ads from the train walls. That guy who was so angry... we were right there, remember? We were always right there.  We are right there now.

Four years ago at 6:18 pm the whole world stopped spinning.  It has never started back up.

I am, and always will be, your mom.  With all which this means."

"There were balloons that lit up the night... lanterns that shone so bright.
Sparklers to light the way, dolphins that swam and played.
True friends stood by my side, when all I did was cry.
Another year that's come and gone. Just a memory now in my heart lives on.
Happy Birthday my Mathew..."

"Hello Mathew... another day, right? Today I am saving horses.  What do you think?  Horses.  I couldn't save you so I'm saving horses.  What do you suppose I will try and save next?  I couldn't save you.  I can't same me. So maybe I should try whales... or Panda Bears.

I can't do this yet somehow I do.  Somehow I keep walking forward when I know there is no reason to continue to walk forward.  For all that I love, loved, desired, is behind me.  My world is rubble, all my dreams are ashes that shift in the gentle breeze.  How do I keep doing this?  I don't.  I gave up a long time ago and you know the really amazing part... nobody even noticed.  I stopped functioning and I didn't make anybody's radar.  It's only a matter of time now you see.  For I am not wanted here, nor needed.  I'm just clocking time.  I search for something that will give my life meaning, have value.  But there is nothing.  Only this great, vast, void that stretches out forever into nothingness.

... and that sums it up.  nothingness... I'm being absorbed, swallowed into nothingness.I don't care anymore. There is nothing to care for anymore."

This tribute was added by linda jones on 30th March 2016

"Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on
Cherished memories never fade
because one loved is gone
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart
For as long as there is a memory
they live on in our heart.

Love and miss you Mathew xxxx"

"I Was Here

By Beyoncé Knowles

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won't forget

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I want to say I lived each day, until I died
I know that I meant something in, somebody's life
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone to happiness
Left this world a little better just because

I was here

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I'm done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I lived, I was here
I did, I was here
I lived, I was here
I did, I've done, I was here"

"I sit here, another Christmas come and gone without you.  The day came and went and not one person shared a mention, a memory, an anecdote, a thought of you.  But I remembered, your father remembered, and I know every member of the Jones family remembered.  Maybe that is how it is supposed to be; I'm sure I don't know anymore.  What I do know is that I miss you more and more everyday.  I don't know how to make it better.  I try but the missing grows.  I love you.  Always and forever ..."

"I still think of you every minute...

I still listen for your footsteps...

I still listen for your laugh...

I still listen for your voice...

I still listen for your one liners...

I still listen for your teasing...

I still look for your smile...

I still look for the blue of your eyes...

I still look for your laundry in the dryer...

I still look for your dishes in the sink...

I still look for your cruiser in the driveway...

I still look for the mess in what was your room...

I still wonder when you will be home...

I still catch myself wanting to tell you something...

I still grab your favorite food in the store...

I still hear myself making fun of your television shows...

I still see you in your favorite chair...

I still see you playing with Kane...

I still want to meet you for a drink...

I still wonder about his day...

I still think about your plans...

I still plan on you at holidays...

I still remember your favorite catch phrases...

I still think about your humor...

I still wait for your hugs...

I still hear my voice telling you to stay safe...

I still hear myself telling you I love him...

I still hear myself telling you I'm sorry, so very, very sorry."

"Goodbye my beloved Mathew
For now it’s time to part
Goodbye my beloved Mathew
You’re always in my heart
I think of you in the morning
I think of you at night
I think of you in the darkness
And with the morning’s light

Goodbye my beloved Mathew
I pray that you are safe
Goodbye my beloved Mathew
I know you are in a good place
Still, my world is empty
For you were its shining light
I try so hard to be happy
I’m afraid I’ve lost that fight

Goodbye my beloved Mathew
I’ll never let you go
Goodbye my beloved Mathew
Although you wished it so
I pray that you are happy
Where ever you may be
I wait in quiet silence
Till the day I’ll be with thee…

Three years today..."

"Thinking of you, Mathew.  Remembering the good times our families spent together over the years.  The memories will always be treasured and never forgotten.  We laugh at times remembering the funny things, like being on the paddle boats and then into the water at Lake Lunga, and you coming out soaking wet and laughing with everyone on shore.  We cry.  Sometimes we raise a glass to you, with a nice margarita.  We always remember your laugh and your wonderful smile.  You are missed."

I want  you laundry left in my dryer, your clothes on the dining room table.  I want your half eaten plates of food in the living room, your drinks on the counter.  I want your car in the driveway, your stuff all over the house.  But most of all... I want you.  More than ever... I want you.  How could this have happened?  How could I have lost you?  Why did you go?"

"My dearest Mathew~

Well this is a first.  I’ve never written to you before.  But you see its been really hard lately.  I think you know this.

I’ve been living in the past.  Even before you.  I’ve been listening to the music from my teens.  I remember how I felt when I was so young.  All my hopes and dreams.  You were one of them.  I didn’t know it but you were.  I just never knew it would end so badly for us.

The other day I heard a song that I had not heard in years.  It is originally written for two who are in love.  By changing one word to your name, it summed up everything I feel these days.

I just miss you so much.  I never knew I could have emotions this strong.  But I do.  So, its hard.  Really hard.

STILL
The Commodores
(Lionel Richie)

Lady (Mathew), Morning's just a moment away
And I'm without you once again
You laughed at me
You said you didn't needed me
I wonder if you need me now

So many dreams that flew away
So many words we didn't say
Two people lost in a storm
Where did we go?
Where'd we go?

We lost what we both had found
You know we let each other down
But then most of all
I Do Love You
Still!

We played the games that people play
We made our mistakes along the way
Somehow I know deep in my heart
You needed me
'Cause I needed you so desperatly!
We were too blind to see

But then most of all
I Do Love You
Still!

Always and forever,

Your mom…"

Entfernen Sie alles, was bleibt?
Erste Person...
Dann die Erinnerungen...
Nicht mehr vorgibt.
Hast du jemals?  
Jetzt bist du frei... für alles, was Sie nach wie vor Liebe.
Die Zerstörung war nicht auf euch...
Nur auf ihm.
Und alles, was er liebte.

...und so geht es.

I'm sorry Mathew..."

Sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely
And then come and ease the pain

Or is this burning an eternal flame

I won't stop remembering you... I won't forget you."

But wishing you were still here.."

"So many days, and on your birthday Mathew, I have thought of you so many times.  I think of your mom and dad, family and friends who miss you.  Especially your mom and dad, for only they can know the heartache they feel at losing you, their son, their much loved son.  I see this poem everyday since I keep a copy of it because it holds special meaning to me.  I wanted to share it here for you.  M.D. Hughs wrote:  "The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.  The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.  The music stops, yet echoes on in sweet soulful refrains.  For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains."  You were a beautiful person Mat.  You made people happy just by being around you.  Now, so many times, there are just no words.  I do not know what to say, but I know what I feel.  I am so sad that you are gone, too soon.  I know how much your mom and dad love you.  So many people love you, we love you -  and - we keep you in our hearts, treasuring the memories of times we spent with you over the years, when you and the girls were growing up.  We all miss you.  Happy birthday in heaven.  You are missed.  You are loved."

"Those we love remain with us,
For love itself lives on,
Cherished memories never fade,
Because our loved one is gone,
For as long as there is a memory, they live on in our heart.....

"Every day that passes I seem to miss you more
I miss our little chats, and you knocking at the door
I miss the way you laughed, and the way you used to smile,
I would give any thing to have you back, if even only for a while...."

"Tonight N'Sync reunited for the VMA.  Do you remember when I dragged you and Chris to the World Arena to see them.? The girls screamed so loud that our ears physically hurt when we left.  We had dinner first... who would have thought back then that one night I would see them but you wouldn't be here to make fun of me.  Another memory, faded and aged.  Treasured and loved.  I miss you..."

"Where are you?  You should be here, with us.  Almost ten months and I still miss you like it was yesterday.  But then it was yesterday.  The world moves on, marching with time.  But I stay right here, with you.  I can't leave you.  So I sit, and I wait, and I wonder when my time will end so that I can be with you again.  I miss you. It gets worse and worse every day.  I miss you."

"They gave me your uniform. They gave me your badge.  But they couldn't give me what I really wanted.  I want you.  I think about you every minute of every day and every minute of every night.  I still run home to tell you things... waiting for you to tell me stuff.  I miss our long talks and brief bursts.  I miss you... nine months into forever.  Mom"

I'm so lost without you.  So lost...  Just one more minute... just one more minute."

"Love is patient, love is kind.  It is not jealous, it is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails...  I miss you, always.  Mom"
