Miles Raymond Matthew

Miles Raymond Matthew, age 3 years 11 months, passed away at home on February 15, 2017 following a courageous fight against cancer.  A strong fighter, he thrived beyond anyone’s expectations. Playful moments with his sister, Malia, riding his tricycle and scooter, swinging, driving his blue electric car, and getting to do those things he dreamed of one day growing up to be: a train engineer, a pilot, and an astronaut filled his final days.

On March 25, 2013, Miles came into this world with a smile that brought miles of smiles to all those around him. He willingly helped, no matter how big the task. He loved the color blue, trains, cars, and airplanes. The blue teddy from Grammie was by his side comforting him every day and every night through his fight.

His memory will live on with his sister, Malia, 5 years, his mother, Christie, and his father, Josh. He will live on in the hearts of his grandparents – Don and June Raymond, Chip and Kathy Matthew, his aunts – Julie Moffet and Erin Matthew, his uncles – Mitch Moffet and Ben Matthew, and his cousins – Ellie Moffet, Harlie Moffet, Sean Matthew, and Sam Matthew, and all his friends.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.  The visitation will be held at Crowder Funeral Home located at 1645 East Main Street, League City, Texas 77573.

Miles’ celebration of life will be held at Bay Harbour United Methodist Church located at 3459 FM 518 Rd E, League City, Texas 77573. Guests are asked to wear blue, Miles favorite color.

  2. I cannot say I have ever met little Miles but my heart and prayers go out to his family. Especially his mother, father and little sister. From just looking at his picture, I can tell that this beautiful baby boy was obviously a tiny little ray of sunshine. This little boy, had a courageous battle with cancer which is something no child should have to endure. Even though he was sick, he was a little warrior. A brave little solider. I just know he is playing in the sunshine in Heaven. I just wanted the Mathew family know that even though I have never met them or their beautiful son, they are in my prayers and thoughts. I am positive that little Miles impacted everyone he met. I just wanted his family to know, I am proof that this sweet little boy inspired people who he never knew as well. It is with a saddened and heavy heart that I say goodnight, sweet little prince.

  3. Today in Covington, LA will be preached James 1:17, “Every Good and Perfect Gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly Lights, Who does not change like shifting shadows.” Renowned to be the high water mark in Scripture is Micah 6:8 where the king asked the prophet: What does the Creator demand from me? The answer comes: You are to Do What Is Just, Behave with His Mercy evident in you and Be sensitive every moment to Act – building upon The Creator’s Leadership in your life. (My Hebrew Translation.) From the Beginning it has been proclaimed: The Lord Thy God Creator is One. For Miles I claim you realize the Promise in Isiah 55:11 understanding that what we read as “Word” is the same Word that applies to the subject of the Creator found in John Chapter 1 and the Subjects of The Creator’s creations which are Transformed, not passing away: “So Shall My Word Be that goes forth out of Me, It will not return unto Me empty (void): It Shall acomplish ITs Mission and Prosper in those who harken to Its Witness to overcome Evil with Good.” (My Hebrew interpretation) Romans Chapter 12 explains. In a lifetime we, on this side, may not understand; and so we have been given Hebrews Chapter 11 to remiind us the meaning of the Word: Faith. By report I understand that Miles’ 3 years and 11 months have been and ARE a Blessing. I pray that Blessing continues until we then Shall Behold Face to Face and Know, even as we are Known.

  8. No parent should lose a child – especially one so young. But, yall were wonderful, caring, loving, attentive parents and Miles was very fortunate to have yall and Malia and all of his other family members and friends. Miles was loved by so many – including those who never met him in person, but kept up with how he was doing through your posts. He was always smiling and enjoyed being a little boy playing with his trains, riding his tricycle and just enjoying his life as short as it was. My heart is breaking for Miles. We will all miss him, but he will no longer be in pain and is now running and playing with the angels. Rest in Peace, sweet boy. Blessings and love to Josh, Christie, Malia and the rest of the family. May God give you some sort of comfort during this time of sorrow. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend this precious little one’s services. But, my heart and love are there with you.

  9. I’m very sorry to learn about the loss of your precious baby boy. I cannot imagine what a difficult time this is for your family. My heart and prayers go out to you at this most difficult time as your feeling of loss is so deep. May you find a measure of comfort in the Bible’s promise that soon, our Creator Jehovah God, will end all suffering, pain, and death, and that by means of his son, Christ Jesus, he extends the beautiful hope of being reunited with our loved ones that have passed away, including him (Rev 21:4, John 5:28-29).
