You were the first thought on my mind when I woke up this morning. Without you, Christmas isn't the same anymore. I miss your laugh, the sparkle in your eyes, your silly, laughable gestures & your big, big smile. I can't and won't wish you here, but I do wish we could be 2gether today, Milo. One day closer . . .
All my love,
Hello Angel / Dottie Angel Mom To Matthew Hagan ^i^ (Visitor) In here it says that you liked to dance, so did my Matt, Here is a cloud you both can dance on. You were so young...My Matt was only 17. Children are supposed to bury their parents, not the other way around. I know you both are happy in heaven, with the largest playground ever to play with, and to watch over all of your loved ones. Hopefully you and My Matthew have met and are best of Angel friends. The tears never go away, they just can't be seen by everyone any more. Here is a poem I found that was given to me when my Matt passed. I hope you like it.
Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle Autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's rush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there; I did not die.
I know this is an indian prayer, but I don't know who wrote it. It is true. they are not in the ground anymore. They are with our Lord Jesus Christ!
I know they watch over us, they are the soft breeze you feel upon you face when you are still and quiet. Please feel free to e-mail me anytime. I am always here to listen. I never critisize. We are in this together. It is a horrible way to nmeet people, but I have met the most eonderful and inspiring people on here. Always remember you are not alone. Any graphics on y Matt's page that you like, please feel free to use if you want to. I try to make them available to all who want them. The site is www.matthew-hagan.memory-of.com and www.matthew-hagan.virtual-memorials.com. I have one other one that I just found it is a free site to place a memorial if you are interested it is www.matthew-dean-hagan.gonetoosoon.co.uk I don't get too many visits to that site, it is based in the UK, but the people that do visit are extremely nice. E-mail me anytime. If you want to use any of the poems on Matt's site feel free to use them. Love to you and yours and I hope your Holidays are gentle to you all. Love Dottie Mattsmomma ^i^

On this Thanksgiving Day . . . / Your Mom
I needed you to know that on this Thanksgiving Day we are thinking of you and missing you so much.
Jim & I are setting a dinner place for three in honor of your dear and precious memory, Milo. We are making your favorite fruit salad and have renamed it "Milo salad."
That makes you pretty darn special, which you are and always will be.
When I start to get sad anymore I just try to remember that it's Jesus you are with, and that helps to take my tears away.
The apostle Paul said, "That to be absent from the body is to be in the warm arms of Jesus." How could I wish you to be anyplace but where you are?
We long to be with you, Milo, and we know you are waiting for our arrival.
So please get things ready for us and make it all nice and comfy.
Dear Father who art in Heaven... Please join our family on this Thanksgiving Day and bless each one as we sit down to pray as we remember those who have joined you above so dearly missed and deeply loved.
Please provide us strength on this Thanksgiving Day Bless us with memories of those faraway... Please grant patience to family and friends as we grieve and help us reach out to others who are bereaved.
We give thanks to you on this Thanksgiving Day.... For Your presence in our lives each and everyday. For Your comfort, guidance, and never ending love... And for taking care of our loved ones...in Heaven above.
As we light this candle on this Thanksgiving Day... And it glows in memory of those in Heaven today.... May their lights always shine down on us and give us light... And may we feel their presence along with yours tonight.
May the peace and tranquility of this Thanksgiving Day Be an everlasting light within each of us along the way... Lets bow our heads and give our Thanks to God above. For our blessings, whether on earth or in Heaven above... Amen
Thankful for our friends.. / Rosemary And Family

Happy Day After Birthday Marla! / Rosemary
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARLA!
Missing YOU on my birthday, Milo . . . / Your Mom
Sweet memories fill my mind as I am reminded of the nine months I tenderly carried you in my womb.
Frequently amused by your hiccups and the soft flutter of tiny feet, I fell in love with you long before I ever held you in my arms.
My love for you grew as I intently watched my silhouette and felt the contours of my life changing in anticipation of your arrival.
I was certain you were going to be a boy, a ballplayer, and often I'd pull up my shirt just to watch you kick and play.
Your birth was quite eventful with 27 students observing and cheering me on.
I will never forget the feeling of joy when you were finally placed on my stomach, so close to my heart.
I could feel our hearts beating to the symphony of a new and beautiful love story.
Thank you, Milo, my sweet baby boy, for coming into my life and bringing me the wonderful experience of being your mother for twenty-nine years.
I'll love you forever,
Milo bringing Mom some sweets / Rosemary
This is Milo bringing Mom a wagon full of sweet honey for Thanksgiving. He loves you so much. You are blessed Mom.

Marla, what a beautiful site you have created for your precious loving handsome son. I read about his love of sports, love of God, and good and my heart breaks for why is it always the good die young?
I laughed at reading about lifting your shirt to see the action while carrying this sport action baby in you! I do hope that him along with all our angel boys are playing sports, fishing and having a grand ole time. Did Milo like to ice skate? Bryan loved to , and was very very good, in fact I thought he would take up playing hockey at one time.
Milo, Hug our boys for us hon, and send mom a big ole hug and kiss she loves and talks about you in such praise and honor that is yours and yours alone!
With love in my heart, understanding and compassion in my soul .
