Matt was always there for my family and I. Anytime I needed him, he would go out of his way to help. Helped my mom and grandmother too. He will be missed SO MUCH by so many. We were truly blessed to have been his friend.

I didn’t know Matt very long but he was a kind, generous and loving person. He loved his family and even his extended family and treated them with love as if they were his own. My hope is that everyone continues to celebrate his life and be as loving and kind as he was. There no better way to pay tribute to someone than to carry on the goodness and love and be kind to everyone he loved. My heart hurts for his family and friends and he will be truly missed. Someone once told me that God picks the best flowers to add to bouquet. This is certainly true in Matt’s case. Fly high and Rest In Peace My sincerest condolences to all who loved him and who he loved.
