Matthew died December 19th 2006 while riding in a car with his best friend Steven. His friend was trying to pass a car and had to get back in his lane of traffic and over-corrected and the car flipped into a telephone pole. Matt and his best friend since third grade both died that day.
Matt was a kid that always had to know everyone. He had many “best friends”, everyone that met him liked him. He loved to socialize, that always got him in trouble at school. One of his teachers once told me he could talk to someone without even saying a word. Whenever we got a new neighbor in the neighborhood, Matt was the first person to welcome them and get to know them. Matt was always on the go, he loved skateboarding and riding his bike. His summers were spent taking his little sister to the pool or at the river with a friend. He was the best little brother and big brother to his siblings. He included his little sister in most everything he did.
Matthew will be my Angel Boy forever, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about his smile, I can still hear him saying I love you mom. He will forever be in my heart. He is missed so much by myself, his dad, sister and brother.
We love you and miss you so much…
