Was just sitting here thinking of the so many times you would Protect my Brittany like she was your Little sister and basically she was, she loved you like a big brother and I sit and recount the times watching you and my children grow together so many years Matt you are missed I can honestly say that i feel like mama connie to you and so many kids I have watched grow up and My heart breaks that you wont be here physically in spirit next month As Brittany gets Married but you will be in spirit watching her walk down the aisle wearing that beautiful gown marrying that same man that you so approved of.... Sweet dreams Matt your light is still shining here at your earthly Home your Mom , Dad and earthly friends make sure of that RIP
Matt. I think of you often as so many deaths have affected our small town. I'm sure you've shown the newest angels around and you all are riding free... I've lived you add a son and I just wanted you to know that I miss you..
Matt, my prayers are not for you because you are in a safe, beautiful place of peace and light, my prayers now are for those you've left behind, who miss you every day, and whose lives will never be quite the same, Your knowledge is so much greater than when you were here on earth, and you know the ones who still need to be comforted by you, Continue to protect and watch over them...With love.
It's been only five months and two others have joined you in eternity. Your house is now filled with other people, and your belongings now mostly dispersed. But your in my heart and thoughts every day. Those that love you still write on your page and visit your grave. Your friends have adopted us as family. Jigs still sits by my side as though I were you. Your still with us, we just can't see you or touch you. I miss your smile and your laugh.I love you forever.
Matt just so u know things haven't gotten any easier since u have been gone... we have had a lot of tears shed, laughs, plenty of anger, and lord knows enough beer for a life time... you have left a lasting impression on everyone's heart and soles... we love u now and forever in our hearts... thank you for allowing all if us to be a part of your lives and now your mom and dads... she and Dad have gained so many kids we all love them dearly... love u Matt... bobby misses u so much... peace of him has been taken with u since u have been gone...brotherly love
Matthew touches so many lives with genuine love...but, none so much as his mother. Matthew was & is the breath of authenticity, making the best of life's journeys presented to him. His presence in flesh was great because he was present for life...just as he is present for "spirit"...Our Father wanted his presence with him, and so it is. I imagine the angelic choir he is now surrounded with...I imagine him walking with Jesus and exploring the joy and wonder of shedding his flesh. How blessed we all are that he touched our lives here and will continue to do so into the next!
Matt, you will be remembered fondly, and missed by family and friends alike. You were a great guy, with much tenderness inside your soul. Praying that you can help Mandi in a way you couldn't before, from an exalted position in the heavens! You are loved!!
Shine on son, Shine on! More stories come everyday to my ears of your protection of others, helping the wounded, and loving everyone. Shine on! Mom
I'm so glad I got the chance to know you. Although I didn't know you well and it was over a short period of time, I still feel like you were my friend. It saddens me to know I will never see your face again. I always looked forward to seeing you when I went to work and the thought of never seeing you again or talking to you is hard. You made an impression on many and those who knew you will always have a special place in their hearts. RIP Matthew Stokes Billings<3<3<3
We are so sorry for your loss and pray God will send His comforting grace to you and your family during this difficult time. Josi & Bill
I will miss you! See you at the crossroads my friend! My deepest sympathies to family and friends, he was an awesome person inside and out!

I am so sorry for your loss. May God give you the strength you need in your time of grief.
My nephew/son-in law by a previous marriage, I can see by your great friends and family that I knew well that you lived your life to the fullest.
You will be missed by many and always loved by family.
I'm not sure what to say. You were a true friend, and a major influence on my life. I wouldn't be tattooing today if it weren't for you. You gave me the push I needed to follow my dream with the tenacity that you lived your life. Your influence will remain with me for the rest of my life and I will never be the same person. I miss you, bro. I will miss the chess games and the conversations. I know that when I ride, you will be there riding with me. Thank you Stokes, for all that you taught me. Ride in Peace.
It's hard to know just what to say,
When one so young is taken away.
Far too soon he had to part,
His memory forever engraved in our heart.
We only knew him for a short while,
But the life he led made us smile.
He was so beautiful and oh so rare,
Life as they say just isn't fair.
Those gone before him will watch him with care,
Till the day comes when we'll all join him there.
Know Matt is watching from heaven above,
And with each ray of sunshine, he's sending his love.
My heart Aches for you Sandy it is so hard when you lose a child people just don't know unless they have also had such a loss . Thinking of you at this time
Matt was a genuine 'good guy.' He was a friend to my son when my son needed a friend. We will miss Matt.
Matthew your light will continue to shine on in all the lives you have touched.Loved by so many... Gone to soon ! Much Love and Prayers to Sandy and Jay .

To the parents of my little brother, I am so sorry and heartbroken for your loss. Stokes was so full of life, he lived it by his rules and did right by god always. Part of me died with his passing. If you ever need anything please don't hesitate to ask. Love and Respect, Dirty, Warlocks Sebring
R.I.P., Matt, May God provide peace & comfort to you, your family, and friends.
Death leaves a pain that no one can heal;
Love leaves memories that no one can steal!
Stokes, man will I miss that smile. You were truly amazing and will be missed more than words can express. I can honestly say that the world has lost a great man. To your parents, Jay and Sandy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating one heck of guy. It was an honor knowing Matt and being able to call him a friend. You were so amazing God wanted you home and even though our hearts are breaking, I can smile knowing you are up there watching over us.

a young man who touched many peoples lives.helping in need.a wonderfull man and son and friend to all who knew him god bless him ..lisa leonzis
I loved you like my own son, Matt. My heart is broken. To your parents,I Can't even imagine what you're going thru. My prayers are with you and his Warlock family. God bless you.
Can't find the words to express our sadness - - for ourselves, for all of the people who loved him, and especially for his parents. Stokes not only loved life but loved the people around him. We take comfort in knowing he held strong to Jesus and in believing God has His arms wrapped around Stokes today as he is welcomed home. May this same God provide us all with His Peace and Comfort as we deal with our broken hearts.
Forever loved and missed by many
You will be dearly missed and loved by many..
Wishing things could have been different that night.. You and bobby was having such a great day for something to happen like this.. You will forever be missed and dearly loved.. Your one of a kind.. We love you..Rest in Peace my friend.
To his parents I want to say I'm very srry for the loss of your son, I'm sure you loved him a great deal. I have to say I'm gonna miss his crazy stories and his outlook on things ... He was and always will be a stand up guy !!! Stokes we are all gonna miss ya brother ! You tell our other brothers up there we miss them, and we will all ride again someday .... Love ya man
