Damn I hate to see things like this happen. Being a father and a young man not much older than Matthew,
my heart and prayers go out to his family. I hope that God is with your family. I will say some prayers for your son! What a shame.

12-31-04 --7.30 eastern time

last night[ matts ]wake took place 4.00 to 8.00 pm it was in the begining as devastating as u ever could imagine
my daughters /grand childeren / our parents / all very shaken and wracked with grief as we looked apon his lifeless frame [still no picture could do his handsome face and carismatic personality] as the line begane iasked every one to say a prayer for matt
after about one and a half hours we began to take notice that way more than casual friends and family were coming through the line . but persons of all areas of life business men ,lawenforcement officers ,court oficers ,polititions, pepole from medical comunity , from connectut ,main,

the director commented on the turn out being so large and strong

i tell u that not one person yes even a hells angel showed and all of them wept visible tears and sobed audible
he moved people from every strain of life

it came over me the enormous turnout was a earthly vote of confidence few men get at his age .

it also made rock solid confidence to my self as his father on earth ,that the father in heaven had him already at his table

i kissed him many times and talked softly to him
i asked matt to watch the rest of us [including me] from his vantage piont above

no were not over it buy any means but we seem to be as assured as any one that matt is with the father in heaven

again i tell u giant men of all stature wept uncontrolably
the beautiful arangement of flowers that was sent buy you people at digital corvetes ment so much and i placed them below his head i was prowed of all of you brothers and sisters of D C

today at 10.am was a repeat of the same
the service was first class

i had his aunt terry reed a biography he wrote in the third grade [it was saintly pure ] mentioned his family
his pets ,his baseball team and how his tripple hit along with the actual pic that we found won the game and the series his team was the orioles

peg seems to be getting stronger were talking about getting a glass case typ pic frame
and exibiting the best of him pic crucafix ect in the front room for all to see[ life takes strange twists]

enough for now my friends =don and peg

I'm sure I speak for everyone that we are beyond touched by that gesture. Thank you for giving us that honor, Cosmo.

What you wrote is purely heart-breaking. But, it's good to clean out my tear ducts from time to time (wife too).

I hope you, Peg and your family can get some rest and take it easy for a while.

There are strength in numbers, let us know if we can do anything for you, brother.

Oh, Cosmo, that really is too sad for words. There's no way to make this be okay, so just know that you have my heartfelt sympathy. I'm so sorry....
