In loving memory
Matthew C. Frank Trecker

Matthew, I love you
I wish I could kiss you.
Your nice smile that lasted
Quite some while,
Your warm touch
Is missed so much.
Your sweet, neat
You truly were, and continue
God’s precious gift to me.
In Memory of all murder
victims past and present

"A prayer for
Our Father up in heaven,
hear this fervent prayer:|
May the people of all nations be united in thy care.
For earth’s peace and man’s salvation can come only by thy
And not through bombs and missiles
And our quest for outer-space…
For until all men recognize that the "Battle is the
And peace on earth can not be won with strategy and swords.
We will go on vainly fighting as we have in ages past
Finding only empty victories and a peace that can not last…
But we’ve grown so rich and mighty and so arrogantly strong,
We no longer ask in humbleness,
God, show us where we are wrong…
We have come to trust completely in the power of man-made things.
Unmindful of God’s mighty power,
And that he is "Kings of Kings"…
We have turned our eyes away from him to go our selfish way.
And money, power, and pleasure are the Gods we serve today…
And the good green earth God gave us to peacefully enjoy,
Through greed, fear, and hatred we are seeking to destroy.
Oh Father, up in Heaven, In Jesus’ name,
Stir and wake up our sleepy souls.
Renew our faith and lift us up and give us higher goals.
And grant us heavenly guidance as war threatens us again.
