Here are some more pics of Mathew, all of which were taken on one day. Honestly, I think this was just some random Sunday where Melissa and I went to my house for dinner but it turned out to be one of those days that produce some of the most memorable pictures ever. I always loved these pictures and now I’ll cherish them even more.
Three days later and I still miss him just as bad…
Melissa’s favorite picture of her and Mathew, this one actually ended up on a 2005 wall calendar that we had made for my parents for Christmas in 2004:
One of the most handsome pictures of Mathew:
My parents were away some time in 2004, I believe in April and we were over the house, house sitting and one day we had this crazy idea to paint. Melissa had canvases and paint and brushes and we went outside at night with tables and chairs and lights and stuff. I painted a sunset in the ocean, Melissa painted this beautiful picture of Mathew. This wasn’t taken from a real picture, though she did use real pictures as reference points, but I’ve always loved this picture. And clearly my parents loved it too since they framed it. Here is Mathew’s portrait:
This is probably one of my favorite pictures of me with Mathew, I don’t think I’ll ever have one picture of him that would be my favorite, but this is definately on the top twenty list:
