Thank you for replying to my message, its been the hardest few months of our lives, matthew was our world and we miss him like i cant explain, he was loved so much by all his family. he was such a well and happy boy, his passing came as such a shock it was so sudden and unexpected, we had had such a perfect day with him i still cant believe it happened and how we are coping without him with us.  you read literature regarding the boys condition and me and my husband believed we were so lucky with matthew as he had always been in such good health, we were so lucky. when the boys reach a certain age things change for them and we didnt see it coming (something i will never forgive myself for) the care matthew received once in adult services wasnt the same or as through. thank you once again for replying its good to type away my thoughts xxx love lynn
