Social media has allowed many of us watch Denise and Corey's love story unfold.  I have been inspired through their faith, commitment, love and joy as they merged their families into one.  I also shared in their joy of new beginnings. Through this tragedy, faith will endure.  With all beginnings there are ends.  We are reminded in Revelation 1:8 - "I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”  

I ask as a community of friends, strangers or anyone blessed to have loved or been loved that we contribute to covering  some of the expenses that come with such tragedy.  

Psalm 90:12 - "Teach us to know the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom."

Welcome to the world Baby Corey Renee Mattison! September 21, 2015. Below are some inspiring words from her Mama:

""What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him"- - 1 Corinthians 2:9
Today...9.21.2015 Our precious daughter, Corey Renee Mattison, entered this world...
Corey: chosen
Renee: reborn
Mattison: gift
God knew all along that she would be ours. He knit her in my womb knowing that her daddy would be with Him on this day. We may be separated, but this child was chosen to be our daughter now and for all eternity. When this child entered the world, both in heaven and on earth shouts of joy resounded in unison...praising our God for life...her precious life...her birth. Today has carried in it sorrow and joy...both equally important. The sorrow reminds us that we are but strangers here, our eternal destiny still before us. The joy is evidence that although we have not yet finished our race, never the less GOD IS WITH US! And so I will sing praise to God for He is good! I will be satisfied in Him, and I will rejoice today in this overwhelming gift..."
A Mothers love...

Thank you to everyone for their prayers, support and contributions. A light of hope, love, and mercy has shined down on Denise and her children as they received the news that she and Corey are expecting a baby! My guess is that it was one of the first things he heard when he arrived in heaven. Joy of this gift is filling the family's hearts. Below is a verse that Denise shared to capture this blessing.

"I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow." Jeremiah 31:13

Please share this page to provide the support she needs. God is good, real good!

To everyone that has supported Denise and her family...THANK YOU! It has been incredible to see everyone rally around one another. The service for her husband Corey was AMAZING and so touching. In addition to Denise, her older children spoke and it was extremely moving to hear what joy and love they felt when their mom found someone to love her. I want to stress the need of this fund. Besides the expenditures for the funeral, their house needs some attention, cars need to be fixed or replaced and the loss of income needed for her and the 5 children will need to be addressed both in the short and long term. Amen to a wonderful day celebrating a man that served others before himself.
