    We are deeply saddened and pray for the family as Matt goes into his next season of life. May the Lord Jesus watch over his family

  • Bunky and Bobbi I’m so very sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be going through. But Matthew is free at last. Never having to worry about the troubles of this world again. And I know Aunt Helen and Uncle Johnny are beyond happy.
    Bobbi as a mother I can only imagine your pain. I to have lived part of what you have gone through(you can ask Bunky). It rips your heart out. Bunky not leaving you out. I’m sure it’s different for a Dad. Just as hard. You both have missed so much with him. But you will be together again. God bless you. Give you strength at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Love to you all.

    Matt was the best person I ever knew. We were connected not only as best friends but are souls intertwined. I knew his hopes, dreams, and all he wanted for his future. He was taken unfairly and to soon. One of his dreams was to become a cook and wanted a business of his own. He was a avid reader and there wasn’t much he didn’t know. He was the smartest, loyalist, and most loving person this world had to offer. Everyday without him is a loss this world is missing. I love you Matthew
