I am grateful that you gave me the "short version" as my heart is unable to handle the strain of reading such things right now. I am not certain I could pull myself out of the emotional pit it would put me in.

My heart goes out to Matt, Maddy, and the entire family.


This reminds me so much of a situation I was in at work, almost
5 years ago. The young mother passed away, while her husband and son were in the hallway. The baby cried the entire time we coded his mother. I didn't sleep for a week. I can only imagine the pain Matt is going through. Thank God he has Madeline, though. I read the whole thing....


Oh, how very sad. I will come back and click the links once my kiddos are in bed and I have some alone time to bawl. I always get so emotional over stories like this.

Thank you for sharing Lori.

Great post! Isn't it so tragic? Yet Matt is so strong and amazing for sharing with us. Somehow I'm drawn to these types of stories, for they truly make me appreciate the blessings I have in my own life. I need these reminders.


Wow.......great post Lori, very insightful, especially to someone like me. What a tragic, awful thing to happen to such a wonderful family ! Thank you for sharing mama, it really opens up my thoughts on my own life...

I nearly didn't go there as I knew I would cry, but what an amazing family for Madeline to grow into, and her daddy is keeping her mummy there for her with all those beautiful pictures and memories.
It does make you realize how lucky you are. I'm off now to cuddle my kids and give Mr B a big kiss.


any other week, i would have clicked. but i can't do sad this week... i just can't. really really really sorry. but i did read the bit about hugging people. i will do that, for you.


what a sad story that has a great message. thanks for sharing.

I don't think I can read the post. I have been struggling, in a good way I guess, as to how I can find ways to express my gratitude for all that I have...despite my crabby online persona I have been given a life that is such a gift, and I feel like I am going to burst sometimes because I want to give thanks. Stories like Matt's just make you realize the fullness of what you have, and the grace and strength of people who have had to deal with such a terrible tragedy... like you said, hug your kids and family. Hug everyone.


It was just shortly after I too spent about 3 hours reading through his whole blog and crying my eyes out at work....... so sad. And yet you feel you are part of his life now, huh?
