I just finished reading The Messenger, and at the end of the book i cried, and cried. I truly believe Mattie is a Saint and is watching over us, especially his Mom. What an Angel he is who suffered his whole life, while he spread the word of kindness and peace. What a wonderful gift from God. I love you Mattie!!!! I know your happy now, and your doing exactly what you want. Keep your eye on your Mom until you see her again in Heaven.
