Gosh where do I start? I first met Matthhew at I wanna say Albertsons, but then it later turned into a SaveMart. I remember him dressing up as Elvis and he could sing a mean streak out of him! Always said Hi always had a positive way about him. Always asked how my kids were doing. I am sorry to hear of his passing. He is truely amazing!

To the sweetest man I have ever known. You are my Steve Austin and I'm your Jamie Summers! You had my heart the day mom brought you home. I know you are shining down on me from heaven and there is no more pain. Please put in a good word for me with the big guy, and no I don't mean Elvis. I will always picture your smiling face and feel the joy you brought to all who had the pleasure to meet you. I think now is the time to pop the question to Cathy Mullins...she has been waiting for you. I love you so much and can't wait until we meet again. Your loving sister "Babrah"

Matthew was and is my friend (Luke 20:38) He was fun to work with. His innocence and honesty was refreshing. I will miss spending time with him. He was so fortunate to have such a caring mother and family. I thank them for letting me be a part of Matthew's life.

Matthew was a well-loved parishioner at St. Paul Newman Center. During my years there, he was a faithful altar server and Eucharistic Minister. He never failed to remind me of how great Elvis Presley was and I agreed! On one occasion, I went shopping at Savemart and Matthew was bagging groceries. When he saw me he said to the check-out clerk, "He's my father!" He meant "Father" as in Catholic priest. The clerk looked at me rather strangely thinking I was his father! Matthew was full of surprises and good humor. He was as faithful a man as anyone I've known. I will miss his smiling face and friendly disposition. My prayers and love to Betty and the entire Beshwate family during this time.

I have fond memories of Matt serving Mass for me and Fr. Negro at the Newman Center. I'm happy to hear that he advanced to being a Eucharistic Minister as well! I will keep him and the whole family in my prayers.

Oh Matthew, as close to an angel as man can become. I'll miss your smile, your laughter, but most of all your innocence.
My deepest sympathy to my Aunt Betty and Cousins Kelly, Rick, Steve,Cathy,Barbara,Mary,Anita, and Lourdine. Hope I didn't forget anyone...(so many). Bless you all and keep those fond memories of Matthew with you always.

Love you all,
Cousin Jim

Matthew Paul "Sheshate" The sweetest angel on this earth. When I was born (the first grandchild in this crazy family) you were 5 years old. We were like 2 peas in a pod. You watched over me and we cracked up all the time. When my girls Alex and Tylar came along you loved on them, played with them, and watched over them just like you did with me. They will remember your sweetness always! We spent hours playing cars when we were little and recently as well. We looked at pictures, cut up magazines, sang and danced. I was " A little bit country" and you were "A little bit Rock n Roll" with our fake microphones and guitars. A few big moments I remember were when you sang at my wedding and at my 40th surprise birthday party at Harrah's South Lake Tahoe Center Stage!! You were truly a star! I've always felt a special bond with you and will cherish each and every moment spent with you in my heart for the rest of my life. You always brought such joy to me, you were easy to tease (especially with frogs) and have fun with. My life will forever be changed without you here. I am so grateful I was able to come and help take care of you and spend time with you and Grandma this summer. At times it was difficult, but you still shined your special love and light on me. I have peace knowing you are whole again, no more suffering, singing and dancing for Jesus and our family in heaven. Maybe even Elvis himself!! I know Grandpa and Uncle T welcomed you with hugs. Until we meet again Uncle Matt I will miss you with all my heart and soul! I LOVE YOU xoxo

The best part of shopping at Savemart was when Matthew was at the counter when I checked out or collecting carts in the parking lot when I walked to or from the store. He was a delight...so polite and caring. He was happy......an inspiration. His beautiful spirit gave so much simple joy to others. My prayers are with you at this time of loss.
