Matt S.Bello
In Memoriam Matt S.Bello Sept.8, 1959 - July 10, 1995 
My Dear Son Matt: I hope that God has granted you the peace you were looking for. 
He is there for us each and everyone. 
With love and an open door. 
It's three long years since you were taken and sudden it was, I'll say. 
Though it was hard on all of us We know that that's God's way. 
We miss your silly faces, hugs and laughter, that came with your big heart. 
You're not alone because Tasha had joined you for death is just a start. 
We cry from time to time I seem to cry each day I guess it's because I carried you and tried to most of the way. 
It wasn't meant to be that we should have you long Just remember we are Bellos and we will end up strong. 
`God go with you Matt' 
Love, Mom, Dad, Mark, Megan, Mike, Adrian, Morey, Mary, Kate and Grandma Elsie
