To Steve, Elaine and Logan. From the Childs/Davis Family, we wish to express our heartfelt and warm condolences as you endure your days ahead. I had the pleasure of watching Matt grow to adulthood and the way he lived his life, shared his heart and being a big brother and best friend to Logan and the rest of family and friends. Matthew has gained the prize, climbed that mountain and secured his place in a kingdom where we will all see each other once again. May God continue to embrace this family and assure each of you that eternal life is the gift we will all share one day. God bless you Matt!!! It has been my pleasure to have at one time been a part of this family and forever in my heart, you will be family to ours. Rest now, for you have captured the prize. Willie.
