Matthew Dean Hagan
An Angel in God's hands now



Born in Pennsylvania on the 24th day of May 1985, and returned into God's hands on the 4th day of April 2003. He was an Angel on earth and now is an Angel in heaven. Matt was an organ donor, and he saved many lives in his passing. A day of dark grief for his family, and a day of great joy for other families. God works in mysterious ways, it is not up to us to ask why. He will always be remembered and never forgotten by all he met. Matt loved to lift weights and was a very strong and handsome young man. He was taken from us only 1 month and 20 days before his 18th birthday. Matthew was murdered by his best friend who was only 15 at the time. His friends mother was letting her son drink moonshine, my son was also drinking. Teenagers, given the chance will do what they want, and his friend got to playing with a gun. He was devastated to learn that he shot his best friend in the head, and has tried numerous times to take his own life since that night. Matthew lived for 18 hours after being shot through the back of the head. The bullet tore through his brain leaving him brain dead. He made his wishes known to me about wanting to be an organ donor should anything ever happen to him. The recipients are very grateful, I receive cards and letters from them saying how sorry they are that my son had to go home to the heavens so that they might be able to lead a normal life. It was a very hard decision for me to make, but now that it is almost 5 years since that night I am very glad that I did. My great niece was only 6 at the time. She loved Matthew more than anything else. She told me that God sent an Angel to do a job, and that angel got hurt, so He had to find the strongest angel that he could find and that was HER Matthew. She said that he was fine, and that we shouldn't cry. She told us all that Matthew was happy now. I know that he is watching over us all. Thank you Lord for sending me the message through the mouth of a babe. Only God knows why, and one day when we meet again, I will know why. I love you and miss you so much Matt. Always stay close, and keep an eye on your two beautiful nephews, and the one on the way. We all love and miss you, so till we meet again. Love you forever and a day...MOM
