"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 36

Matthew T. Barber

7-16-1992 – 3-29-2011

18 years old

Our son will always be remembered for his smile, his love for his pets and his kind heart.

Matthew loved music and played the guitar since he was a very young child. His guitar went everywhere with him. The first picture is Matthew with Angel wings and he is watching us from above. It reads “The most beautiful things in the world are not seen nor touched. They are felt with the heart” Helen Keller. The second picture across is a music note that describes Matthew, we used this decal on our tee shirts in the Gift of Life Philadelphia walk in 2012. Second row is Matthew the night of his graduation from High School. We were so proud and happy. The picture of Matthew on a pin we wore in two walks for the Gift of Life, it reads “5 life’s from one Angel.” Donor 3/30/2011. The last two pictures are from senior prom and one of my favorite pictures of him and that sweet smile taken in Oct 2010. Matthew passes away 6 am on a Tuesday morning from a car accident. I never thought we would have to say goodbye so soon.
