I don't think I would have survived high school without Matthew's almost constant companionship. And the hours of fun we had playing music with Paul, or exploring the local creek together, they were the highlights of a bitter time with me. Thank you, Matthew, and rock on!

Although my cousin, Matty was always like another older brother making fun of me, always joking, calling me names I hated, etc. Wouldn't have had it any other way. You are loved and missed very much! - "Weazy"

Sitting behind the bowling alley with Kevin and Matthew, kicking back in the Maverick, and laughing uncontrollably at the word "shoehorn". Some of my funniest evenings.. If I was with Matthew, I was laughing... Those were good times...

I remember years ago....Matt was my first date ever, he came to my door we went to the movies....It was the worst date ever! We both agreed on that. A few months ago we talked about it laughing at the whole thing. It may have been a terrible date, but we have been friends ever since, and I can look back on it with fondness . Going to miss his quirky sense of humor and his presence. I am so sorry for your loss., for all of our loss.

Matty David. Impish grin and sparkling eyes. Always the one to run out and help us unload the car. Always the one to drive us nuts with your teasing and picking on everyone. God we're going to miss that! I love you Matty and I hope you're at peace and sitting by a beautiful lake at sunset. Your memory will always bring us a smile and a silly story or two. We're going to miss you so much.

I didn't know Matthew very well, but I do know how much his family loved and cherished him, and how much he meant to them. Peace to you, Matthew, and to your loved ones. You will always be in their hearts. Pat

Arguing hockey with Matt was one of the things I looked forward to at all the family things. The reason I always wore my kings jersey. Wish the sharks had won it this year.

Through our conversations I am strong in a real way (on the inside).

So sorry to see this! Even though we lost touch, I still have fond memories of Matt. Went to a few heavy metal shows. RIP my friend :cry:
