5-23-09:  I have received a phone call regarding Matt. He passed away sometime during the night of May 21st/22nd. It's a very sad situation.



"Eternal rest grant unto him; Perpetual light shine upon him."


 


May God, in His infinite mercy, grant comfort and solace to Matt's loved ones and friends left behine.

5-13-09:  In a message dated 5/12/2009 5:46:16 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, Fanddkid (the friend on pogo) writes:

 
Much appreciated.  Both of Matthew's parents are police officers - dad is still working, mom retired a few years ago after 20 years.  Both of them great kids.  Worked with both of them for a while, then both got promoted to detective and went to different squads. Anyway, thanks again for forwarding the information on Matthew.  Hopefully the bone marrow transplant will help him somewhat.  His mom told me that they froze when the doctors told them that no one has ever survived with the severity of what he has, but her faith is strong and miracles do happen!

 
 
5-12-09  From a friend on pogo ...

 
Please add to your prayers the 17 year old son of a former co-worker.  Matthew Gonzalez has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 leukemia and lymphoma.  He has been in Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York for a month.  In February he traveled to Rome to sing for the Pope and became ill upon his return.  Two other hospitals misdiagnosed him with "mono" and sent him home.  By the time he got to Columbia he was near death.  He is on a respirator but is hanging on.  His parents, Maureen and Greg, strongly believe in the power of prayer.  Matthew is scheduled for a bone marrow transplant today - his 13 year old sister Meghan is a perfect match and he is also receiving stem cell transplant.    PLease pray for this young man - his life is just beginning and I'm sure prayers will pull him through.

 
Thank you so much.

May God, in His infinte mercy, grant this young man restored health. Amen.


I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it. For I shall not pass this way again. Unknown

What a handsome young man.


Dear Lord, please place Your Hands upon Matthew, your faithful servant, and make him strong enough to endure his treatment, so that he may be healed and continue to serve you here on earth.  You are the ultimate healer.


Please heed our call for help, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Almighty God,


With a sincere heart I ask for mercy to be poured upon the life of Matt. As a believer of your word I acknowlegde your might and power. In Jesus name I ask for a special blessing of health to be given to Matt. Father heal him, deliver him from his sickness and put a stop to his leukemia. I pray that you give his Doctors the wisdom to treat him effectively. Give Matt comfort from your spirit. Bring joy to his heart and reassurance of a better day. Comfort his family and friends. Remind all that you are God. May Matt's healing be a testimony to your power.


Place angels around Matt and protect him from the evils of this world.


In Jesus name I pray.


Amen

For the power of our Almighty Savior is so great, even the touch of his garment has the power to raise the dead. Our Father, please let your garment fall upon the life of this young man. Let his health be restored and his heart be renewed in you. Lord I pray that you bring mercy to this family and strength to heal. We accept your miracle of a full recovery for this young man on his behalf, for we know that we need only ask and believe in your power and glory.


Amen.

I have tears falling down my cheeks for this young man who never had a chance to truly experience life. As a mother of 2 boys (one, of which, I lost count how many times we got the phone call that he wasn't going to last thru the night (see post for "son has CP born 1 pound 11 ozs) I know as his parents what are feeling and even though the Lord had different plans for my son, the situation didn't make any easier at the time.  I am feeling grief for Matt, and you, for a this young man I never met. I am here for you to talk to, vent to, cry to. If you need ANYTHING AT ALL, i'll do my best by you.  Please contact me and i'll give you my phone number so I can be a 3rd party, someone impartial to talk to, sometimes there are things you may not be able to share with even your closest family members and I will be happy to just listen to you if that is all you need.


God Be With Your Family and to your Precious Young Man, Matt.


Your sister in Christ, Lori
