My name is Matthew Wiese. I recently joined Jesus in Heaven. I was 13 years old. On September 19, 2007 I was riding my go cart with my friend Hayden and was involved in an accident. The accident resulted in a very serious brain injury and serious skull fractures. The doctors and nurses at Huntsville hospital in Alabama worked very hard to keep me alive when my brain swelled. God answered the many prayers for my survival. I remained in a a coma for a little over 2.5 years while waiting for my brain to heal. Even while in a coma, I attended school every day and had therapy to keep my muscles loose and strong. My family had me participate in almost everything, and worked very hard to keep me healthy. On March 6, 2010, I passed away from this earth in a peaceful way and now am in Heaven playing ans singing like I did before my accident!
