My name is Matthew James Hayes I was born on February 12,1985 to My Mom Lynda and My Dad Darrell, Dad I will always Love and Miss you! We had some great times together! I will see you when you get here! I was very shy unless you knew me, then watch out! Loved to Laugh and have a good time with my family and freinds! Loved to help people when they were in need also, stay off drugs and stay in school! I was also Raised by my Stepdad Ronnie, whom I love very much! I have 2 Brother's Justin & Eli whom I was very close to! 2 Sisters Megan, Hannah and 3 Stepsisters, Johnnae, Misty, Michelle, I have never met them but hopefully I will someday. I have two cousins I was raised with Valerie and Lisa too. I have so many cousins that I love very much! I have a Stepdad Rick, Whom my Mom met on My Birthday one year after I went to be with the Lord, I thank the Lord for bring my Mom a nice Christian Man, who will Love her for who she is, and will take care of her! Those were my exact words, the night before I went to be with the Lord! As you all know I was in a horrible Street Racing Accident on February 27, 2002. I was an innocent passenger in a van getting a ride to a friends house. With a friend of mine named Jacob Malone. We were walking and were picked up by an acquaintance. I had my headphones on listening to Creed (Arm's wide open). When the driver of the van decided to race a motorcyclist across the 10th Street Bridge, in Yuba City going 100 mph when we crashed. Thank God I was SAVED! I gave my Life back to the Lord two weeks before I went to be with the Lord! Six Months before I went to be with the Lord, I was attending Lindhurst High School when I was jumped by 5 guys and got my Jaw Broke on September 7th, 2001 and I had to get my mouth wired shut for 2 months on September 11th, 2001 ( 9-11 )It was then when I decided to go fight for our country in the ARMY!!. I was the wrong guy! They were after some other guy when that happened! I had to do the whole sipping through a straw thing. I never eat so many Milkshakes in my life! Mom made good ones! Those Super Burritos sure looked good, couldn't wait to get my wires off my jaw, so I could eat one! Oh ya I tried to take a Grilled Cheese Sandwich from my cousin Alexa, that even looked good! I knew I couldn't eat it but it was fun anyways! Then I was riding my bike down the road when I got hit by a car, when I was on my bike, and it threw me into a ditch. That's ok! Mom said don't worry Matt the Lord will take care of that! And he did! Then I was walking down the street with a couple friends, going to his house when a guy in a Toyota 4×4 Camo Truck hit me and knocked me down to the ground, I got up and asked him why he did it and he took off! Then as we are still walking he came back and said he was sorry, he had a bad day at work!! Come to find out this man was in his 50's. Mom told me the same thing again! Then I was at a friends house swinging from a 2×4 on my friends porch waiting for him to finish his mom's dishes so we could go riding and three guys ran up on me and jumped me, mind you I just got my Jaw broke and these guys are trying to jump me! Mom was pretty mad because she knew the guys! The Lord has taking care of me through everything I went through before he took me home! Then I went to Friday Night Live and met a couple guys and they asked me to go back to Church with them at New Life where I was raised in Church. And I gave my heart back to the Lord! GOT SAVED! That night we were getting into my friends car after church, and a guy that we didn't even know ran up and kicked the window out where I was sitting. Then he took off running. We didn't do anything, but go home! I couldn't believe it! Then the accident happened! And I went home to be with the Lord! This whole time my Mom felt that Somebody, was going to take me away from her, she felt it very strong! It was true! The Lord took me! I am in a Much better place than you are! I will hopefully see all of you again someday!! My Mom goes to speak at Churches, High Schools, Youth Groups, she speaks on Street Racing, Drugs, Alcohol, and most of all about me being Saved, when I went to be with the Lord! I want to also dedicated my page to a couple best friends of mine Scott Davis ( Hoss )& Chris Hance, They are both with me in Heaven due to them being murdered. Along with our dogs! Also another best friend of mine, Christina Jones who was pregnate when she was killed in a car accident right before me. I Love you Scott, and Christina! I'm kickin it here with family and friends, waiting on all of you! I Love all my family and friends very much and hope to see you all again someday!
