Nothing ever prepares us for such a loss..... I will always remember the instant fondness I had for Matt the instant I met him. He was always so kind and genuine to me; and, undoubtedly many, many others. The heavens have definitely gained an angel. May he rest in peace and may you, the family, find a bit of comfort in knowing how loved he was and will always be. I'm sending my deepest condolences and love.
