Mathew Jacob Riley, May 9, 1996 - April 20, 2013. This is a celebration and remembrance of his life. This is a place where I certainly hope that other mothers will find some hope, some peace. We as a family will never experience life quite the same without our beloved Mathew, but if we can persuade another heart to find hope, than our Mathew will live on forever!

Hard Things....Ann Woodly
There are things to hard to tell;
Images that defy imagining:
Concepts too horrific for the mind to hold;
But they reside with us.
Take up residence in our brain;
Cleaving the soul like shards of glass;
Shattering all you know into useless,
Striking with a furry that knocks you to your knees.
They are persistent, merciless visions,
laying waste to all you once believed.
Shredding ego, leaving you disemboweled, vacant, bleeding.
And this is a terminal condition; whether it kills us or not,
one thing is certain; we will die with it!
How am I you ask?
Do you really want to know?
I wouldn't think so!
But since you inquired I will invite you into my memory.
Welcome this is where I live now!
