Matt has left so many with a huge empty space in their lives but he left everyone he knew with a lot of love and the fact that they had someone they could always count on with him. Matt was one of the students that went with me to Manhattan to learn about starting a prom party for students at Flinthills High School and I couldn't have asked for a more polite, mannerly and kind young man to have gone with me and that carried over in to his life and career. Thank you, Matt, for your service to the public. You will be greatly missed. Love and prayers for the family.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. -Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Love and prayers to all his family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Most all my memories of Matt go way back many years ago when he was still in HS. I’m thankful for facebook and having the chance to follow him through his last few months & most of all the chance to pray for him & his family through it all. Im mostly thankful to know Matt knew our Lord. It’s hard to understand that to die is gain when we’re a Christian, but God has a plan & knew the future. Matt’s safe in the arms of Christ & free of this world of pain. My love and prayers continue for the family. May Christ hold you close and comfort with his peace. ❤️
