DEBBIE DEMATTHEWS ANDREW'S MOM HURTING April 21, 2007
 

 

DEAR DEBBIE,

THANK YOU FOR WRITING TO ME AND MY SON. YOU ARE SO RIGHT ONLY A MOM THAT LOST HER CHILD CAN UNDERSTAND THAT HORRIBLE PAIN WE CARRY WITH US EVERYDAY.

THIS IS LIKE A BAD DREAM AND I JUST CAN'T WAKE UP. I JUST BARELY MAKE IT EVERYDAY. I JUST STARTED BACK TO WORK AFTER BEING OUT ON MEDICAL LEAVE AND I AM STILL PRAYING TO MY JOEY TO HELP ME THROUGH THE DAY.

I JUST CAN'T HANDLE  THIS. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING AND IT JUST DOESN'T WORK.

YOU KNOW NOTHING CAN HELP OR TAKE AWAY THIS PAIN.

I GRIEVE FOR YOU NOW BECAUSE I HAVE MET WONDERFUL PEOPLE DURING THIS HORRIBLE TIME AND I WILL NOW PRAY FOR YOU AND ANDREW.

JOEY HAD THE BIGGEST HEART EVER SO I AM SURE HE ALREADY IS WITH ANDREW WISHING WE WEREN'T IN THIS CONDITION.

I JUST DON'T KNOW ANY OTHER WAY.

EVERYONE TELLS ME JOEY WOULD NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU LIKE THIS AND YOU WILL SEE HIM AGAIN. BELIEVE ME HE IS JUST WAITING WITH OPEN ARMS, SO I HAVE TO HOLD ON TO THAT.

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU FROM ONE  HURTING MOM TO ANOTHER.

MY WEBSITE SITE IS WAYNEDEBBIE14@YAHOO.COM

LOVE DEBBIE

To Debbie I found this poem, its beautiful April 16, 2007
 

I just thought I would share this with you. I think its really beautiful. It is from an unknown author, but I think its nice.

One song can spark a moment,

One flower can wake the dream.

One tree can start a forest,

One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul.

One star can guide a ship at sea,

One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights a room.

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey,

One word must start each prayer.

One hope will raise our spirits,

One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,

one heart can know what's true,

One life can make the difference,

You see, it's up to you!

 

Rose For Andrew's Mom & Dad April 15, 2007
 

Your page is a true memorial for Andrew.  I think of you often and share your pain.  Debi, I will continously pray for a little bit of PEACE in the hearts of your family.  I have no doubt that Andrew will be waiting with Jason at the gates of Heaven for us all.  God Bless!!!!

 

            

     

 

To Debbie, From Brenda Andrew will see you home again April 12, 2007
 
Thank you for the kind words. The Lord will guide you on your trip and Andrew will see you back home again. But be careful anyway. I never understood death or even gave it much thought before. When I was younger my moms only sister died, then her mom and soon after, her dad. Afterwards she got a divorce and changed soo much. I never really understood what she was going through, and still dont know her true pain. John and I had 2 miscarriages but I still dont think that would be the total pain of losing someone you have grown to know for years. Take care and know Jason was the kind of person and still is that will  be by Andrew's side till you go home to him. Brenda

May you know that you along with andrew are in my prayers. ofcourse they dont need our prayers.. they made it. they are awaiting us now.. my angel means so much to me. and im sure yours does to you.  - jen
Brenda M Thank You for your venting!! April 5, 2007
 

We all need to vent once in awhile, especially when someone tries to hurt us when we seem most vulnerable. Thank you for your words. Maybe that will send the message that needs to be told. Again thank you and God bless.

Molly Algoo Thank you for your support April 2, 2007
 

To Andrew's family & friends, I lost my 20 yr old nephew Renold Algoo in a car accident on Nov 29, 2006. My familys' life has changed beyond our imagination. I don't understand yet why this happened but I am so thankful for your support and kind words. It is a relief to know that others share our sorrow as we do yours. I never knew Andrew before this but I can feel the love everyone has for him.  I hope him & Renold find each other in heaven as we have found each other here. May God bless and comfort you and your family.   Love, Molly Algoo

Brenda Murray I know what you are going through April 2, 2007
 
We have been getting messages the same. We have been forced to delete and even write on the site ourselves to stop all the nastiness. My brother in law's wife has gone crazy, as you would understand, and there had been messages from "Another Woman" of Jasons. Who knows if its true and who really cares now. But, it has torn everyone apart. Second guessing the kind of person he is. Wondering if he had another life they didnt know about. Jason's brother and I know its just someone trying to tear us apart, but his wife has even gotten to the point that she gets on our site, trying to defend her position with him. Everyone knows they were married. Everyone knows they had children. Whoever it is, has nothing better to do, but they are getting on the wrong site. They turned ours into a chatroom, we had to tell them to stay off the site. It had worked for awhile. But every now and then, they must get bored obviously they have NO LIFE!!!! The loss of a loved one is soooo devestating. We pray that whoever it is, does not force you to want to delete your site, which had almost done to us. Dont let the DEVIL in!!! He will keep knocking till he realizes you wont open the door. Keep on deleting and realize YOU have that power. They may be able to get on and be pathetic, but you have the power to get rid of their nastiness just by the touch of a button!!!! And in that, you know he wont win. The Lord is watching over your family, we will pray for you and your family and we know and understand the sites arent for attention, just a means of dealing with the tragic loss of a loved one. A way of greiving. Our sincerest condolences!!!!!
Brenda Murray Jason Murray's sister in law March 21, 2007
 
My husband and I prayed for your family today. Now, when we think of Jason and his vehicle accident we also say a prayer for you. We understand how hard it is to wake up one morning and someone so loved be gone ever so quickly. Jason was a bout to graduate as a registerd nurse, had been a EMT for quite some time. He loved helping people and it devastated us that in his time of need, there was noone able to help him. It happened so quickly that we beleive he didnt feel any pain. Like your poem, God reached down and took his hand. And lifted him so high, noone could keep him on earth that day. It has been so hard. We pray for your family and Jason is most likely with your Andrew showing him how to fish, that is what Jason loved to do best. Fishing with his dad and brother and his stepson. We pray you will all be ok one day. Knowing that is a difficult thing to pray for. Our thoughts are with you.

Brenda Murray I hope it is ok March 20, 2007
 

As I was looking at your beautiful site, I read the letter from him as he was in heaven. It was beautiful. I wonder if it is ok that I also put it on our page for Jason. If not, please feel free to let me know, I dont want to upset anyone or hurt anyone but it is the most beautiful poem I have ever read. So, please let me know, and Ill take it off there. Thank you.

John and Brenda Murray Thank you for the kind words March 20, 2007
 
To, Debbie : Thank you for the kind words and we understand what you are going through. We lost Jason so suddenly. It just seemed so unreal. This is the best way to help us deal with the pain and we are so thankful for people like you that can give us a little bit to smile about. His parents are still not able to get on the site yet. It seems too difficult and I was thankful that John asked me to make it for the family since they were not able. You have a beautiful page. It is full of love and you know Andrew is reading it just as often and you guys do. It is true he will never be far from you. From your heart and soul. From your thoughts and dreams. Thank you for visiting our site, come back and visit anytime. Sorry for your loss.

Hello Debi,

 

Your support has touched the hearts of my mother and i and we appreciate your kind words. It is hard to live in a world where there is loss but it is even harder without out loving people like you to guide a mother and daughter who feel lost right now. That is why we are lucky. I miss my big brother immensly. There are times when i will just look out the window and at the snow reliving the memories in my head. It hits me randomly and i just start crying. I know you say that it should get better with time but i find with me it is getting worse. I will be fine but the pain is so deep it unimaginable. I know you and my mother have talked and it is good for her to talk to another grieving mother. I know the pain of losing a big brother but i will never know the pain of losing a son, so i try the best i can to console her. I hope that your family is slowly healing and that the painful shock of andrews passing will turn into thoughts of fond memories of the past. I am trying to do the same but my brother was dying long before his heart stopped. God is watching over your son and i pray for him and my brother every day.

Frank Grieving parent February 8, 2007
 
My Heart goes out to you and your family. I know how you feel. It is just a year since my son Rich has passed and it feels as if it were last night when the police came to my house to tell me what happened. May you find some peace and comfort knowing that your son is with God and the angels.  May our boys rest in peace!
Bridget a greiving Mom February 4, 2007
 

I share in your loss. I lost my son 6 month's ago. [ Keith ]. I know our boy's are still with us. Even on the day's when you think you can't go on. We find a way too. People tell me that it get's better with time, but I don't think so. I had my son for 23 year's. The whole that is left in your heart is so great. I know our son's are happy and looking down at us saying Mom have some fun. We will get through this some day. Unless you have been through this you can never know the pain that is so great that sometime's you can't breath. We have to stay strong for the other children in our life.  They need us also. Sometime's I think my Daughter is stronger than I am. Our family's were so blessed to have Andrew and Keith in them, and the joy they showed us. Take Care of you!

Karen My prayer for you January 6, 2007
 

I visited your site after I saw your condolence for my niece Lacy Willcoxon.  Lacy was only 19 when she left us.  I can't imagine how you feel.  Losing a son so young.  Your poems and letters to your son are very touching.  I just can't imagine your hole in your heart.  

 

Thank you for your condolence for my niece. 

 

If you want to visit Lacy's website again you will need a password -  Lacy Anetri.

Misty Jarrad Colemans sister Jarrads Accident October 1, 2006
 
Debi, I was on Jarrads website & saw where u asked us to visit Andrews site. While I was reading about Andrews Accident I saw how he left u. Jarrad also died from head trama. Jarrad was trying to come home from work at a go-cart track in Pigeon Forge.He was on his motorcycle when a group of kids ran him out of the road.When he got back on the road, & got in the fastlane behind a truck to get away from them ,right as he started to pass, they sped up & got next to the truck causing Jarrad to run into the truck & when he crashed his helmet came off.I just wanted to tell u about it because it is so simular to Andrews accident.Jarrad was my only brother & my parents only son also. He was the baby of  4 kids.Thank you for your kind words & for visting Jarrads website.  Misty 
Ashley (James Terry Peals Grandaughter) Thank You September 30, 2006
 

Dear Ms. Debi,

    First, I want to thank you for your warm-hearted condolence you left on my grandfather, James Terry Peals, website. Your kindness touched me and my family and we would like to thank you for your words. They are some of the more sincere I have heard since he has been gone. That being because you have been there too. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child. It must be the most excruciating thing to go threw. My family has never experienced a loss like that of my grandfather. He was killed on June 26, 2006 at 5:02 p.m. when a 74 yr. old woman ran a redlight driving a unbearable rate of speed of 85-90 mph. My grandfathers light had been changed to green and he never saw her coming towards him. Thank God, he didn't know what happened. The woman hit my grandfathers truck and his truck was knocked into the ditch of a car lot. He died immediatley by impact and from head injuries as well. The lady threw her 10 year old grandbaby threw the windshield of her car into the windshield of a parked truck in the carlot. The woman and her grandson lived. Unfortunatley, my grandfather did not. The lady stated her brakes malfunctioned but she never hit her brakes. We believe that her medical records showed that she had siezures and was not supposed to be driving anyway. We have yet to see the medical records yet though, but are in the process.

   I know if Andrew enjoyed playing baseball, then yes, he has already met my grandfather. My grandfather loved the game. He taught my brothers everything they know about it and was also a big fan of the Atlanta Braves. So, I am sure that they are playing together. I was very touched at your precious sons website. Please stay in touch, Debi. Many people beleive they have to isolate themselves when a loved one dies. But people like you and I with our websites, have to unite and help each other. Through it all we can make it through. We must keep the legacy they left alive. God Bless You Sweetie.

Delphine Thinking of you & your family September 26, 2006
 

Thank you for the kind message you sent Adam. 

There are no words to express the pain you must feel.  As a mum it doesn’t matter if your child passes over at 5 months, 5 years or 18 years. The pain and the emotions that we feel are hard to bear.  Just remember that Andrew is now an Angel watching over you and your family.  And the love you have for him will keep him alive forever.   From reading these pages it shows you both shared a special bond which will never be broken.

God bless you and keep you strong in the days ahead. 

Delphine

Cheri Dooley My love and prayers for you today August 25, 2006
 

Gene, Debi and girls,

 

I think of you all often. I can never know your loss, but I can share your pain. Focus on your wonderful memories and the fact that you will see Andrew again someday in Glory. What a beautiful thought, what a hope to hold onto! Know that in the meantime, you are loved.
