This just doesn’t seem real. I haven’t seen or spoken to Matt in a long time but we grew up a few streets apart. You always knew when Matt was in a room because of his laugh. He was a good person and he will be missed. My heart goes out to his family.

Anjelina and Family,

I worked with Matt for many years and he will be greatly missed here. You have my deepest sympathy and my sincere condolences. The family is my thoughts and prayers.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
