I guess the old saying is true. That you don't know what you've got until its gone. I never really believe that was true until that night. I remember it like it was yesterday.

My best friend since 5th grade Matt and I were driving down the road. Well, actually I was driving down the road, Matt was just being his annoying in a lovable way self. This was the first time that I had actually talked to Matt in over 2 months. That was when he told me how he really felt about me and things changed with us forever. He wanted to be more than just my best friend. I wanted that too but I knew that it would never work. That is the reason why things that happened should have never happened. I guess that I was afraid. Not afraid of being with Matt. I guess I was afraid of never seeing Matt. You see he was on the road with the WWF. He was one half of the tag team champions. The man I called my best friend was none other than Matt Hardy.

Since the start of the day Matt was trying to tell me something but I was too worried about getting him to the arena in time. I had things to tell him to but I need to get him to the show. This was the first time that I drove Matt to any arena. He had gotten me tickets to see the show. He told me he wanted his best friend to see what he loved doing best and the one thing he loved doing.

"KERI...KERI." Matt said to me as I tried to pay attention to the road. it had started to rain and I was not familiar with this area or how the driving conditions would be. "Matt, what do you want," i said looking at the road. "Keri Ann Rogers, will you marry me?" I glanced over at Matt. He was wearing a huge smile on his face and was holding out a beautiful ring. "it was my mothers," he replied. I guess I did not see the lights from the oncoming truck.

"MATT! MATT!" I said trying to hear some response. I knew that our car had flipped but at that point I was not sure where we were on the road. He did not respond. I moved to see if there was any way that I could get out of the car and I saw Matt laying beside me with a huge gash in his forehead.

Matt, hang on..I am going to get us some help," I said as I grabbed on to his hand. "Keri, no..." he mustered out a whisper. "its too late, please stay with me. I won't be here much longer," he continued. I knew he was telling the truth. He had lost too much blood and there was no one there to save us. "Matt, don't think that you are going to get rid of me that easily, you are going to be just fine but there is something I need to tell you," i said. "let me tell you something before I go. You have been my best friend forever." Matt said as his breath started to go. "and I don't know where I would be without you. Tell Jeff and dad that I love them. And Keri I love you," and the he was gone.

I will never forget Matt. And I have something that will never let me forget him, our son Matthew Moore Hardy Jr.
