MATT was more like a brother than uncle since we grew up together. I am sorry for your lost. May the peace of our Heavenly Father surround you with His comfort & love. Find peace in knowing to absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Remember all the good times and happy memories. We celebrate Matt is in a better place. May God bless all his family.

I am so sorry to hear of Matt's passing. We bowled together on a team many, many years ago and we remained good friends. Didn't see him often. My deepest condolences to his wife and all his family. May he rest in peach in God's loving arms.
