There are no words, love never dies,
you are always here alive in our hearts and minds..
love you and miss you
Matthew I think about you often. You could not have been a kinder, sweeter young man. You had the best smile, an easygoing and charming personality, and you loved to laugh. You are missed by all those who loved you.
love you and miss you...
Happy 25th Birthday!!
I love you and miss you.
A picture of you smiling takes away the sadness for a minute... it reminds me of your jokes, accents, pranks , fun-loving nature and that makes me smile...you brought so much joy to everyone around you..
you still do...
you are always in my thoughts.
Forever in my heart.
Love You Sweetheart
Happy 25th birthday!
there are no words to express how much you are missed.. ...the only thing left that fills the hole in our hearts is your love...your smiling face, your passion for life... you helped others keep life in perspective and overcome obstacles and insecurities... as an outsider who experienced pain as a child and had to look death in the face before your time... you knew life was short and people fragile... grandma always said you were a "wise" old man, saavy beyond your years... your senstivity and empathy lives on... your compassion...
As I said five years ago the pain of your loss is equal and opposite to the depth of the love -- to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction... you were loved so much -- more than most people-- and you touched so many lives--- and it is that which lives on in each of us... we touch others lives and hearts because of what you gave us ... and in this way you live forever...
now you and grandma are together...
playing cards... let her win sometimes!
I love you more than you ever knew
loving and missing you always
forever in my heart
"A human life is a story told by God" Hans Christian Anderson. Matthew's story continues to be told in the lives you lead and his effect on how we live ours.
I believe that Matthew is with you every day, infusing you with his love, and enabling you to continue to be the amazing family, friends and colleagues that you are to every person in your lives.
Mitch, your friends in the Aviation & Admiralty Staff at the Department of Justice extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family in this time of great loss. Mere words are woefully inadequate to express the difficulties you now experience, but with the healing power of time will come renewed appreciation for the gift you shared in Matthew during his time with you, and the certain knowledge that his legacy lives on in the lives of so many. May you feel the Lord's goodness and mercy as you walk, like King David, through the Valley of the Shadow and back into the light.
To the entire Baumeister Family:
Tragic does not do justice to our loss of Matthew. I will always remember him as having the widest smile of anyone I have ever known. From Far Hills to Newark Academy, Matt brought smiles and laughs to those all around him. I will keep you all in my thoughts. I am so sorry, and will always remember Matt and the joy he brought to those around him.
I watched Adam and Matt grow up through the trials and tribulations of their teenage years to come out on the other side as strong, successful young men ready to change the world. I am heart-broken for you and your family and I wish I could offer more than condolences. But I do know, that even though Matt is no longer with us, part of his spirit will continue to live strong in the memories of the past and in the thoughts and actions of the future in the group of guys he grew up with and made a such deep impact on. I just wanted to let you know that my thoughs are often with you.
You will be greatly missed. You were an extremely kind individual. God Bless you and your family.
I am deeply shocked by the sad news of your beloved son Matthew's sudden passing.
Please know that my heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult time. Knowing that no words will soften the pain of your loss right now I offer you my deepest sympathy.
You were my first friend at NA. I'm gonna miss you and everything about you. Wish I could have had just one more day with you.
Love you always
Unspeakable tragedy. Our deepest sympathies to Lin, Mitch, Jared and the rest of the family.
