Celebrating life stories...

Matthew Paul Travis Cole
November 28 1985 - July 2 2008

Forever in our hearts



This online memorial was created in loving memory of Matthew Cole, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. I chose the name Matthew because it means gift from God. What I didn't know is that he was not given to me, only leant. God has called him back Home now because his tasks in this world were through. Someday I know I will walk with him again in Paradise, but until then I will miss him more with each new day. Please sign Matthew's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Matthew forever.


Thoughts about Matthew

On July 2, 2008, God called my son back Home. Matthew Paul Travis Cole was born on Thanksgiving morning, November 28th, 1985. The first time I looked into his eyes I knew he was special. He was so caring, so sensitive, so full of wonder and adventure. He lived his life exactly how he chose to live it, on his own terms. He was still sowing his wild oats. I wonder everyday what he would be doing now if he were still here, would he married, have kids, find a career? Those things weren't part of God's plan for Matthew. I will remember him always and miss him more with each new day. Matthew Paul, you were my precious gift from God. I will always be grateful for the 22 years I had you, and I know in my heart we will be together again.

Matthew and Melissa

 Aren't they cute! Are they twins? That's what I heard for years when Matthew and Melissa were little. They were 22 months apart, and they were inseperable. Matthew loved being a big brother. Melissa was HIS baby! These memories are so precious to me. My heart breaks, not only for the loss of my handsome son, but for the pain that Melissa feels everyday. She never knew a world without Matthew until now. I don't understand the reasons why, all I know is the world was a better place when he was still here.


My sons and I

Of all the things I've done in my life, the thing that brings me the most pride by far is giving birth to 3 beautiful children. Matthew and Melissa were only a year and 10 months apart. People used to ask if they were twins all the time. I know she misses him and her heart has been torn apart.Zachary's little heart is breaking too. He loved his big brother.He lit up anytime Matthew came around I always thought we'd have more time together, but the time ran out, Now all we have are our memories. I'll miss Matthew everyday. I'll always love you and you will be in my heart forever.
