One of my very closest friends just lost her brother

My very dear friends Charity and Faith need your prayers. Their brother Matthew, had a wreck and it killed him. I don't know all the details. From what I can gather, he was either drunk or high. He was coming off an interstate and couldn't hold the turn and lost control. He hit an information sign and it killed him and put his cousin in ICU. Matthew was only 23 years old, their cousin is only 19. It's a very sad situation. It hurts because I have been knowing this family for 4 years now. It's very painful to think that he died so young. Faith and Charity are young themselves and their family has been through a lot. Their mother walked out on them when they were very young, leaving their father to raise all 5 of them. Faith and Charity are twins and they had 3 brothers, Chris, Matt and Daniel. Matthew was a very solemn person, but he had a heart of gold. He used to annoy the crap out of us with his constant guitar but now it seems like "man, if we could just hear him play" ya know? Once, Matt played a song for me by the Christian group Big Tent Revival called Please Forgive Them. Here are the lyrics to it and if you get a chance to hear it, listen to it. Rest in peace Matthew, we love you our red headed angel (thanks for listening to my ramblings)

 Upon the cross of Calvary
My precious Savior died for me
And for our sin, He shed His blood
And by His love He prayed to God

Chorus
Father please forgive them, they know not what they do
I will be the sacrifice, for all they've done to You
Turn Your wrath upon me Lord, Your one and only son
Please forgive them
They know not what they've done


All the shame the Savior bore
That even God could look no more
The sins of future, now, and past
He paid it all, and breathed His last


Chorus


But the grave could not hold Him
For He that knew no sin has died and rose again
He is alive
And He stands before the King of Kings and cries


Chorus

I am so for their loss.  I to lost my brother at a young age, he was 27.  I know how hard it can be, especially when they are responsible for their own death.

Thank you for your condolences mama. I just don't really know how to react, ya know? I mean, I don't know what I would do if one of my siblings passed, I'd probably go crazy.
