Matt was truly a man among men.A solid guy that you felt lucky to be called his friend.A good hearted guy that was a man of his word and sought to make the world a better place.And did.The world will be a poorer place without him in it.

I did not personally know Matt but, I know he was an inspiration to a whole lot of people and to one family friends of mine in particular. I also was informed of his faith in God and how he lived and showed it through his action and his works. I wanted to let his family and friends know that my prayers are lifted up for them. God Bless.
