James Matthew Dewar
I am Matty's aunt. I still am. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. It is such a very sad and tragic story. Matthew did not intend to die; he had way to much life in him. He thought that he knew what he was doing. He was just a sad and lost little boy. As he got older, he grew into a sad and lost young man. Matthew left behind a family that loved him much more than he knew. He left behind friends that still remember the good times. He left behind a mother that cannot stop crying and a daughter that wants to know all she can about her daddy. A laugh doesn't even sound like a laugh. The sun doesn't shine as bright. Food tastes different. Life just is different without you in our lives. Nothing will ever be the same again. Nothing.
