This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Matthew Tucker who was born in North Carolina on March 14, 1987 and passed away on May 04, 2005 at the age of 18. We will remember him forever. He will be missed so much by loved ones and friends.
Matt was the kind of person that always had a smile on his face when you would pass by him, he'd be the one person that everyone could depend on and go to in their time of need.
Some of his favorite things to do were hangin with his "boys" in town going to the beach to party. He was very dedicated to his car, a '93 black Trans Am, he had just about everything he could possibly do done to it. Matt had been wanting a motorcycle for quite a while and when he finally turned 18 he got the exact one he wanted. Unfortunately only 3 days after he purchased the bike, with lack of experience, it took his life. We know that he is now with God and watching over his family and friends everyday. We only wish we could have had more time and memories to make together as a family. Matthew will always be loved and remembered by everyone that knew him, for he made just that big of an impact on every soul he meet.
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see; If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand, And said my place was ready in Heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I'd always thought I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for and so much yet to do, It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought all the love we shared and all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for a while, I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see your smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be, For emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things that I'd miss tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne, He said, "This is eternity and all I've promised you, today for life on earth is past but here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last, and since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true, though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free. So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?" So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.

Matthew Will Be Missed By Many!...We All Loved Him So Much...We lost Matthew on May 4, 2005 due to a motorcycle accident. He had only had the bike for 3 days. But this was a dream of his to have one day. He was graduating this year also in June, so he sold his other pride and joy (TA LT1 motor, 97') a real black beauty, to be able to buy a cycle. Knowing he was 18 yrs old now and graduating also, we knew he was determined to have his dream bike. He had always wanted one since he was 16 yrs old. But their was no changing his mind now...and he was the happinest boy on May 2, 2005. Nothing could have maded him happier. He just needed more time to learn how to handle it, ride it etc..He never expected that would be his last day to ride. We all take each day, each moment every breath we take for granted. If I only had one more moment right? It wouldn't still be enough. He had the biggest smile on his face that day! He truly was a son to be very proud of.
Matt, liked to hang out with his friends (his Guys) they always had each others back. Always chatting about cars and girls!! He looked forward to graduating and going on to SCC our local colleage to get his BLT in law , and having a plumbing and electric. He enjoyed hunting, and riding four wheelers, and giving a helping hand.
