Most of you don't know a little boy I knew has passed away. He passed away Sunday, March 13, 2011. I met this young man when I interned at the Elementary School. Matty Melton was the name I knew him by. He suffered from Medulloblastoma and it was cancerous. Just 10 years old. It makes me very sad because I knew Matty, I taught him for 5 months. He was truly a blessing and he will be missed greatly. God needed him more in heaven than he needed him here on Earth.

I just thought I would pass this along. I hope it's not as much a shock like it was to me. I found out on Facebook before I went to bed on Sunday night. I was shocked because last time I heard about Matty he was doing good. Then I didn't hear anything for a while. My thought and prayers go out to this family. Please keep them in your prayers too. God knows and it's his time not ours.
