Matthew was not just my brother-in-law but my little brother as well. I've watched him grow up. When my girls were born he took being their Uncle seriously, they were his girls. Lucas and I will keep your memory alive and make sure the girls know everyday how much you loved them. Rest now and keep watch over us. With all my love, your sister-in-law Jenn

Matthew I can't even find words to say the emptiness we feel inside knowing that you are gone. If you could only see the love of family and friends that is being shown each day then you would understand how much you are missed.
I remember when you were born and the joy you brought to everyone with your smile and curiosity for live. The tender heart you showed when you interacted with Heather on a daily basis. Any task you did for Heather was always with a smile and you made it fun. Your candle will always be lit in our lives. Gone but not forgotten. We love you, John and Brenda

I first met Matthew a year ago when his Aunt Sharon was moving in next door. He worked tiresly clearing and clearing off the lot so his Aunts home could be put there. He was a very caring giving and loving person always putting everyone elses needs above his own. He truly was one of Gods special Angels here on Earth. Fly high Matthew with the Angels in Heaven . You will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
