Those we loved don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday, unseen, unheard, but always near.
They are still loved, still missed and forever be near our hearts ♥️

I've known Matt our entire lives. He was the type of guy who will give u the shirt off his back if he cares about you. He's done it for me many times. I can't think of another person who was there for me no matter what anytime I ever needed him. God damn man you're already missed. Well make sure your kids are good. Till next time brother. I love you
