"Our Little Bug"
Our beautiful redheaded boy, Matthew David Choate, was born June 7, 2003 in Logan, Utah to Jonathan David and Loralee Mitchell Choate.
He passed away unexpectedly at his home on Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2003.
Matthew came into life at a dark, sad time but brought so much joy and delight to all. He loved bath time and standing on his Dad's chest, while holding his hands. His Mom loved to hear his sweet little sounds as he snuggled with her.
In his brief time, he brought endless hours of love and joy to his home and was a bright spot in our lives, touching so many hearts.
He is survived by his parents; two brothers: James Rhett and Christopher Bradley; grandparents: David "Mickey" and Marilyn Choate, Logan; Robert C. and LaRee Mitchell, Logan; great grandfather: David P. Choate, Onalaska, Texas; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
The family wishes to thank the paramedics, staff of Logan Regional Hospital and Share Parents. We also would like to thank Dr. Mark D. Heiner for bringing Matthew so kindly into the world, and Sheryl Roper-Hodges, PNP for taking such good care of him after he was here.
Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday, September 26, 2003, at the North Logan 12th Ward, 2540 North 400 East, with Bishop Dell Olsen conducting. Friends and family may call at the church from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. prior to services.
Interment will be in the Logan City Cemetery. Condolences to the family may be extended online at www.nelsonfuneralhome.com.
