Good question - - my dear precious fourteen year old son. One day when you are a bit older I will let you know that Matthew is your older brother. He would have been 38 this September. His life ended in April of 1970.
He is a great older brother; indeed, I ask him to intercede for you and your two brothers here when things are rough. I ask him to intercede for you when you are frustrated or down.
Yes, he is a great older brother - and I wish we could all have met him - alas, his time here on earth was way too short.
I know, however, that he loves you and is looking forward to the day when he can be with you. That, I know, will be years and years off...but with God time is nothing, so too with Matthew as he is right there with Him.
You also have an older sister - her name is Michelle. Her life was also very short - but make no mistake about it - she also intercedes for you, Jordon and Jesse. As an older sister, she has the tenderest heart. She longs for the day that she can hug all of us and never let us go.
Gabe - Mom loves you so much and she loves your tender heart - in many ways I think you take after your oldest brother and sister.
