Jeannie and I wanted to express our sincere condolences over the passing of your son. We never actually met Matt, but saw photos of him in your Christmas cards. Frank, I can see from the photos in this tribute your son had that same big smile that I always remember about you, and I’m sure he had the same wonderful personality you always possessed. He looked like an awesome young man, and I'm sure he will be greatly missed. You all are in our daily thoughts.

I'm am so surprised, and so saddened by the loss of such a caring, friendly and talented young man. It came as such a shock, and so sudden. My thoughts are with Matt's family and friends, and everyone who was graced by his wonderful personality and extensive talents.

Dear Frank, Jane, and Lauren,
May you be comforted by a life well lived and an amazing tribute to Matt's love of life and friends. I didn't know Matt but by the profound outpouring of friendship and love, I know he was truly the product of your love for family and friends. I pray that you be comforted in these very trying days and weeks by your spirituality and the certainty that Christ the Good Shepherd has led Matt safely home.

Matt was a precious and energetic boy. He was unique in his ability to treat his peers with kindness and respect, no small feat for an adolescent boy and the most important virtues to live by. I am so sad and am praying for his parents and his sister.

I just got off the phone with my mother delivering me the news and I am so sorry for all of the sadness I am sure you are feeling. There is no way I can imagine the feeling of loss that you all are dealing with, and I understand that there is nothing that can be said to lessen it at this time. We have so many memories from lazer tag in the back yard, building lawn chair forts, block

Jane and Frank, thinking of you and Aunt Julie and Uncle Wil today and am so sad for you. But I have been reading the stories on Matt's page this week and looking at the pictures - and, WOW! he really lived, didn't he! Seems like he did not waste a minute! He accomplished more in 31 years than many people do in a lifetime!
There are no words to make you feel better, but I hope you find peace in

I met Matt three years ago. He was the production coordinator on my first paid commercial, I got hired on as a PA, I was still in college at the time.
It wasn't until the next job, that I really got to know Matt and become his friend.
Over these short few years, he took me under his wing and trained me to be a coordinator. Our relationship grew into a great friendship, and I saw him as nothing short of

This week has been incredibly difficult for me and others who were close to Matt. I feel at a loss for words when trying to comprehend this. Matt was a great guy to work with, and an even better friend. I will miss his sense of humor, his wit, and his incredible even keeled demeanor. Most of all, I will miss just hanging out with Matt. Those of us that worked with him are all very grateful for everything he

In 1997, a tall, thin teenager and his father started training with us to learn martial arts. Later, his sister also practiced with us. He was a joy to teach - never angry or complaining. It was with pleasure that we were able to see him earn his first degree black belt, and then his second degree. While we saw him less often as he dedicated himself to his career, it was always a happy occasion when he was able
