11 Nov 1970 - 10 Feb 2009
It never gets any easier. I now have a fear of any of us growing older as if it would make the gap between us and Matt, who will always be young and handsome, somehow more real. My love to everyone who loved Matt and who still finds February a miserable month.
It is hard to think that it is two years since Matthew died. It still feels as if it was yesterday and any moment now the phone will ring and Matthew will say "Hi Mum"
Sitting on Matt's bench in Finsbury Park, and tho I didn't know him, it feels like I do. Much love to you all. He's at peace, I'm sure...Stranger.
Happy Birthday for tomorrow Matt, I'll have a few drinks on your behalf! Charmaine xxxx
That's a great photo. A look I really recognise - excited, engaged, in thoughtful concentration. He's just about so say something concisely brilliant... and top up your glass! Wonderful Matt.Leigh xx
I'm also sitting on Matt's bench in Finsbury Park - thought I'd chance a Google, inspired by the beautiful quote here "His life was gentle and the elements so mixed in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world 'This was a man'". Rest In Peace
