Rob,

I thought of you during our Thanksgiving Dinner and in my prayer for the things that I am thankful for. When I thought of the friends that have made a positive contribution to my life, I thought of you and the friendship we had in our college days. My dear, sweet, and beloved Robert, I cannot believe that you left us 5 years ago. I can still remember that fateful November , 2007 when I found out that you left us. The questions that kept on reverberating my mind ... "why? how? is this true? is this possible?"

God alone knows why you did what you did, and I trust that the mercy of God has rested on you now. I miss you, Rob. I miss your voice, I miss your laugh. I miss being around you, my friend.




Forever I shall remain,
Your Friend,
"AL"

Absolve, we beseech Thee, O Lord,
the soul of Thy servant Robert Matson,
from every bond of sin,
that being raised in the glory of the resurrection,
he may be refreshed among the Saints and Elect.
Through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

My dearest friend,

How are you? There are times when I wish I could still talk to you again, when our conversations could last all day and night with tales and vibrant discourse. Today I am going to attend a wake for a friend's mother as his mother had passed away. My friend, sernan, was feeling down this week because of his mother's terminal care -- suffering from cancer. She passed peacefully on Thursday at 4:42 pm. When sernan messaged me of his mother's passing, i felt a deep sense of sadness for him, but at the same time, i thought of you, my dear friend. It has been 6 years, my friend, since we last talked face to face. I am left writing these posts , which will never be answered again.

I pray for your mother, father, and brothers. I pray that they are doing well now. I do think of you from time to time, bro.

I came to say that I miss you, my dear friend.



Sincerely,
Always,
Al

Lord Jesus, our Redeemer, You willingly gave Yourself up to death so that all people might be saved and pass from death into a new life. Listen to our prayers; look with love on Your people who mourn and pray for their dead brother/sister.
Lord Jesus, You alone are holy and compassionate; forgive our brother/sister his/her sins.
By dying You opened the gates of life for those who believe in You; do not let Your brother/sister be parted from You, but by Your glorious power give him/her light, joy, and peace in heaven where You live for ever and ever. Amen.

My brother (sister) in faith, I entrust you to God Who created you.
May you return to the One Who formed you from the dust of this earth.
May Mary, the angels, and all the saints come to meet you as you go forth from this life.
May Christ Who was crucified for you bring you freedom and peace.
May Christ, the Son of God, Who died for you take you into His kingdom.
May Christ, the Good Shepherd, give you a place within His flock.
May He forgive your sins and keep you among His people.
May you see your Redeemer face to face and enjoy the sight of God forever. Amen.

Bro,

Its July 18, 2013. It's one day before your birthday, my dearest friend and brother. Tomorrow on July 19, 2013 you will turn 28 years old. As I write this and greet you I can't help the tears fill my eyes as I remember you and the beautiful soul that you had, kindness that you showed to everyone around you. I cannot help, Robert, to think of the 'could have beens'.

Its just so crazy how time has gone by since you left us, bro. It's been almost 6 years. I wish you were still here, my dearest friend, I wanted to share with you all the experiences I've had in college writing, the debates i needed your help on, haha! I wish you were there when I started medical school to laugh with me when I was studying in the wee hours of the morning. I can't help also ponder on what you have done had you not had left us so early. But I can't think like that, because everything happened according to the Book of Life. I just wish that you were still around.

This July 19, 2013, I'm going to mass for you, bro. My Birthday Wish for you, Rob, is to be in peace. I pray that you are now at peace, that your stay in Purgatory is over. And that through merciful prayers of Our Blessed Mother Mary, all the Angels and Saints and to us your family and friends, you will be granted pardon of all your sins. Please pray for me also, Rob, please pray for Allison, pray for your mother and father and your brothers.

Rob, I'm also going to celebrate my 28th birthday this coming July 23. We're getting older, dude. haha.

Just wanted to write to you and let you know that I miss you....





I Love You,
Always,
Al

You left us this day 6 years ago.

Its been  6 years since I last saw you and heard you, brother. I'm thinking of you today and sending my prayers for you, prayers for your grandmother, prayers for your mother and father, prayers for your brothers, and prayers for all your loved ones who also miss you and are thinking of you.

You remain and shall always be considered like a brother to me, Rob. You are loved and you are missed.

I miss you, my beloved friend... :'(

Lord our God, the death of Robert recalls our human condition and the brevity of our lives on earth. But for those who believe in Your love, death is not the end, nor does it destroy the bonds that You forge in our lives. We share the faith of Your Son's disciples and the hope of the children of God. Bring the light of Christ's resurrection to this time of testing and pain as we pray for Robert and for those who love him through Christ our Lord. Amen.

I can hear his voice resound in my head, "Oh Al buddy, you gotta learn to not take things too seriously. You gotta learn to relax, buddy ol pal...."

in life he was always full of jokes, and sensed whenever i was being "too serious", or "stressing for nothing".

always knew when to pop a joke to lighten my soul and to make me laugh. i miss laughing with that guy. green jokes abounding.. :P
