Matthew Joseph Kusila
Aug. 25, 1989 -- Sept. 11, 1990
To My Little Angel Matthew,
Sometimes it seems like yesterday that I held you in my arms and then there are times
that it seems a million years ago. Although your life was short the joy and
happiness that you brought us can never be measured. The void that was left in our
lives on the day you died can never be filled. Every hope and dream that we had for
you died with you. It seems that your life ended before it even started.
There were so many things for you to see and learn. We never got to see the
excitement on your face as you opened your Christmas presents or to tell you
about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. We never got to take you for your first
haircut or bring you to school for the very first time. Even though we will
feel the pain of your loss we are so thankful for the short time that you were with us.
I learned a lot from you but the most important thing you taught me was to treasure
each and every moment you have with those that you love most because we never know when
our time together will be over. So my dearest Matthew, I know that you are one of
God's littlest angels and I have no doubt that your are bringing joy and happiness to
those in heaven with you. Our love for you is everlasting and although we held you
our arms for only a short time we will hold you in our hearts forever.
