The lightening was crashing and the thunder was rolling as Angela Thompson stood on that bridge looking down at the river below. She wouldn't believe he was gone. Police cars were blocking the road and the lights were flashing. She could see the railing that Mathew's car had crashed through. The witnesses said they saw him stomp his brakes and turn his wheels to miss hitting a dear. Angela couldn't help but think about how Mathew would always go out of his way to save an animal.
"Ms. I 'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but there's no way he could have survived that crash. The water is extremely cold and the current is too swift for him to swim after that kind of crash." The officer in charge told her.
Angela fell to her knees with the tears coming down like the rain. "I won't believe this. He's out there. You have to find him. You don't understand what a great swimmer my Matty is. Please don't stop looking just yet."
The officer looked at her with a serious look. "I'm sorry, but he's gone. Let one of my officers drive you home."
Angela didn't even remember going home or getting into bed. She was awakened by the knock at the door. When she opened the door she saw her mother standing there with tears in her eyes.
"Oh, Angie." she said as she ran to her and put her arms around her.
Angela started crying in her mother's arms for what seemed like an eternity. "Mama, you didn't have to come all this way. I'm fine."
"I'm not going to let my only daughter go through this alone. What kind of mother would I be." She asked.
"I love him so much mama. He just can't be gone." she cried.
The days went by with hope slipping away.Angela had no other choice but to give Mathew a memorial service so that his friends could say their good byes. That was the hardest decision she had ever had to make in her life. How could she say good bye to the man she loved? They had many plans they wouldn't get to do now. Their wedding was planned for the fall. Angela thought that maybe she shouldn't have waited to marry him. Why did she plan a fall wedding? She should have married him the day that he asked.
