Tell Us About Them:

Matthew was the youngest brother to 3 sisters who all loved and cherished each other. He made me laugh and smile everyday. Strong with a loving sweetness that melted my heart at every turn. Loved his family, faith, football and friends. He is missed every second of the day


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Matthew had colitis and believed pot alienated his pain. From there he explored , ultimately using heroin with fentanyl that killed him


What Made Them Smile?

His friends, his car, our puppy Maggie , his sisters and Matt and I always laughed . His smile was big, his big green eyes lit up


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss his strong hugs, the sound of his voice saying I love you. I miss rubbing his back at night and just sitting quietly and talking. I miss all of him


If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?

I would say I'm sorry I failed you Matt. You were my responsibility and I lost you. I love you more than you will ever know. I miss you terribly.
