Mattie is now an angel to watch over and keep us safe, just as you did for him. My thoughts are with you. Your whole family has inspired me and you'll never be forgotten, including the amazing Mr. Mattie and all his funny faces which flash in my mind daily.

Amazing family thank you for sharing your son with the world he was and is such a blessing and a light. There were so many days when he cheered my sad heart. Struggled with depression this past few years off and on. But seeing his bright face always gave me hope and sometimes he made me laugh! The love that you poured into him came shinning through his smiles and his eyes. You are truly blessed and have blessed many as well.

Oh precious Mattie, gift from heaven. We loved you so. You taught us so much. You grew us. We learned from you. We are still learning from you.

Precious Loux family... Tracie, John, and children... you loved him so well. He was joy, pure joy. He will be ever so missed. I cannot fathom your grief for ours is so deep.

Memory Eternal Mattie.

"Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger."

Christ was in you. You in Him.
