Grieving Father Creates Touching Memorial for His Disabled Son

Ernest and Anneke Robison were informed Matthew Stanford Robison had barely hours to survive when he was born in 1988. Matthew was born with serious impairments as a result of a lack of oxygen and problems during birth. He was largely deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly de Despite this, he survived for over 11 years until passing away in his sleep in 1999.


“Matthew was a delight and an inspiration to everyone who had the opportunity of knowing him.” He was a witness to the absolute divinity of the soul and an incarnation of the wholeness our spirits seek. His holiness inspired, motivated, and benefited those who knew him. He entered the earth as a miracle and went as a miracle.” This passage from Matthew’s obituary expresses the feeling that led the Robisons to establish the Ability Foundation.


They were acutely aware, based on their own experiences, that many individuals with impairments are held behind because they cannot afford supportive equipment. Since 1993, the organization has assisted persons in need in obtaining the essential equipment to regain control of their life.

These heartfelt sentiments are written on Matthew Stanford Robison’s memorial sculpture at Utah’s Salt Lake City cemetery.

In memory of those
who walk more closely
in the hands of God

And who more humbly
the world inspiring
the hearts of men

With their legacy complete
In love, they return
home again to God

To behold his face
and be wholly healed
In joy forever more
