On Thursday morning I received a text message from my mom saying to call her it was urgent. When I called my brother told me that my uncle Matt had passed away unexpectedly. Matt is my dad’s youngest sibling. He was only 48. He leaves behind a wife and 4 kids. Uncle Matt was always one of my favorite relatives. He was kind, funny, and you could just tell that he loved you. I know that many of my cousins also really looked up to him.
Right now I am so incredibly greatful for the knowledge I have of the plan of Salvation. I know that this is not goodbye but merely see you later. I know that my uncle Matt is watching us. I know that we will miss him greatly, but I also know that we will see him again. I don’t know how our family would hold on without that knowledge. Thanks mom and dad for teaching me about the gospel and giving me something to hold on to right now.
