"Hi Matt
It is closer to Christmas and you loved it.  I did not buy anything for children because they did not need it.  Matt" you asked me not to forget them, but it is hard to do anything with them when you are not here in the world.  Everyone were busy with their life.  I took time to visit you here each time.  I do not care who visit you, but this is best way to remember you all the time.  We are good friend and love each other with all our heart.  You did not shy to tell everyone that you loved me in front your family. I was surprised  when you said in Thai that you always love me and no one else in front me and all your friend.

it is beautiful day. I never understand why people are more evil after love one pass away. They deleted your family tree. You have parents and family.  It's sad. You told me to run away and go back to Thailand. LDS in Thailand are very kind to us and love us. YOU told me in Kataya Henry wedding  that you always love me and I always love you infornt everyone because love is strong than anything.  We lived apart and caused us more pain.  YOU pretend or acted happy infornt of everyone,  but it was hurt so bad until you could not take it. You are in heaven and I could feel your love and saw you.  OUR LOVE IS STRONG."

"Hi Matt
We all sad and very sad when you were gone.  I was crying and sad.  I sat in front of Steward & Williams Tribute Center, Ellensburg, Washington USA on Monday night Oct13,2014.  They did not let me see you and told me paid $1000 to put you in casket.  I was agree to pay and showed respect to you.  They still did not let me come.  They did not invite me to your celebration of your life at LDS church in Ellensburg, WA. USA.  They are not kind like LDS in Thailand.  This was hurt me so bad because I was promise you and be there for you.  I knew you did not have any note to anyone.  You told me how much you care for me.  Everything was sad when you passed away.  I felt evil inside of me and I saw you crying.  Someone, you knew so well and got so mad and sent me ugly message to hurt me more in my facebook.  She lived in CA.  I never forget this moment the rest of my life.  I felt the evil and darkness of person.  They are not kind to me.  You were only one kind to me and care for me since you brought me here in USA.  We are friend forever and someday I will see you.  I never forget those darkness in lion rock and coldness when we sat there together.  Thank for being there for me forever.  I do thank everyone part of your life and made you smile.  Thank for be there for Matt and love him.  It does not matter one day you met him or date him.  I do thank all your kindness to Matt and gave him with good memories.  He kept everyone picture and wrote good memories about them.  I read with him and smile.  Thank you."

"Matthew L Jarman wrote this for me
"And I love you so
And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I lived till now
I tell them I don't know
I guess they understand
How lonely life has been
But life began again
The day you look my hand
And Yes I know
how lonely life has been
The shadow follow me
and the night won't set me free
But I don't let the evening get me down
now that you around
And you love me too
my thought are just for you
you set me my spirit free
I am happy that you did
The book of life is brief
and one page is turned
All but loved is dead
That is my belief"

"He was good missionary in Thailand and love Thailand very much.  His dream go back to live in Thailand.  He was very happy to help many Thai people and they love him very much.  He was good LDS member and we are honor him.  He was in better place and he is with God now.  Let send many love to him and  we see him again.  

Elder Ballard said, “I believe the Lord will consider each case separately and judge the circumstances of each individual. I have sincerely sought direction from our Father in Heaven to help me understand the nature of those in these circumstances. And I have come to know, as well as anything else that I know from God, that these people have a place in the kingdom of our Father, and it is not one of darkness or despair, but one where they can receive comfort and experience serenity.”"
