  • And excerpt written by the mother of Easton Mathew:
    Easton Mathew was our second son, our Monkey, a little brother, and an absolute joy to our lives. The first 10 days of his life were a little rough, but that didn’t hold him back a bit. He was a fireball of activity, and he kept us on our toes from the time we brought him home. He was a brown eyed, crazy haired, plump-cheeked, Momma’s boy. He loved his big brother and would let him roll him around on the floor, tackle him, or push him around in the yard in the wagon or on the tricycle. Easton loved to eat, he loved to make noise, he loved to be entertained, and he loved to be carried around. You absolutely could not walk by him without picking him up! The one year we spent with Easton on this earth was such a blessing, and we are forever grateful for that time we spent with him. Do we have regrets? Would we have changed anything? Could we have done anything different? These are questions we ask ourselves everyday- and we probably will for the rest of our lives. Our challenge to you is this- Live like TODAY is your last day, like you don’t know when you’ll leave this earth, like you don’t know if you’ll wake up tomorrow. Live without regret, tomorrow is not promised. Now tell us, if today were your last day- what would be YOUR legacy? How would you be remembered?
