I was happy to know you because of your mom. I also feel i know you on another level because of our similarities in life. You were an amazing man and that will continue on through memories and stories. Rest in Heaven.
To hold you in my arms the day you were born brought so much joy to my life. To hold you in my arms when you took your last breath has brought a sadness that no words can describe. I love you so much my angel boy.
There aren\’t words to express my sadness right now. I take some solace knowing Matt is at peace now and maybe hanging out with his Grandpa Don.
Till we meet again son.
Matt left this world way too early, but he left knowing he had been blessed with an amazing dad, mom and brother who loved him unconditionally. He is now at ultimate peace, while those left behind continue to grieve. No words can take away that pain, but I pray that God continues to bless each of you with serenity during this journey of healing.
Matt you were an amazing, quiet young man when I met you, and I know this world won\’t be same without you in it. You will be deeply missed. Your mom and brother have a special guardian angel to watch over them. I hope your heart is full and happy as you look down on all the people that loved and miss you.
Losing your light and love fills me with inconsolable pain, wondering what could have been.
I remember going to your hockey games and you trying to teach me to play pool.
What keeps me going is knowing that I will get to see you later. I just need to live my life for you. I love you always.
Thank you, Paul, for the time you spent with me in 2008 in Chicago. Sharing interior design tips like a quick way to execute perspective drawings, shadowing you on a job, taking me all over the Merchandise Mart, and hosting me in your home during the visit. A special time that I will always remember and cherish. Not to mention childhood memories of young cousins gone wild and having fun, fun, fun! Thank you for your gracious & generous spirit. Farewell, until we meet again!
It seems like yesterday when we used waxed paper to go even faster down that big steel slide in the school playground screaming all the way down!
There is no time like the old time, when you and I were young! Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr said it best, that\’s most of my fondest memories of you brother, the Six Flags, St. Louis trip, WFL football games of the Chicago Fire at Soldier Field and yes, even shoveling gravel in a basement foundation to get ready for concrete. Lunch breaks when it started to rain, looking at the puddles to see if there were \’bubbles\’ meaning it would rain all day and maybe dad would let us go home.
