Wow, I’m so saddened by this news I read about today. Matt was one of the kindest, sweetest and funniest guys I’ve ever met.

His smile was as big as the Texas sunset and is hugs were so strong they would pop your back.

I’m disappointed that I haven’t stayed in touch or seen him in years since I left the police department.

His dear family I know your loss is big. However I know he’s now in heaven and looking down on his family whom he talked about ALL the time. I know he is with you all. God Bless you each I hope it brings you some comfort, knowing he was loved by MANY.
