Matthew was my son Michael's first and best friend when they started school together. I still remember Michael coming off the school bus and telling me about his new friend Matt!! He idolized Matthew and loved going to his house and having him come to ours in Creamridge. The Blanchard household was always a happy noisy busy place. Nancy and I took over a Cub Scout pack for one year when Michael and Matt decided to try Cub Scouts. His memory will live on always in our hearts. Love, Donna Temming (mom) and Michael Temming

I've known Matt since I was little kid. I was lucky enough to get to spend time with him, his brothers and his cousins for a large part of my life, and have always thought of him as hilarious, sweet, and impressive. He was an amazing brother to Charlie and RJ, and always a son that made his mom proud. The world lost someone special, but I know that the people who were in his life are better just for knowing him. <3
We are so sorry to hear of this tragic loss. May God grant you peace and strength. Matt will forever be watching over you.
Dear Jenny , we are so sorry to hear about Matt. We met him this past summer and thought he was such a nice person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always. love, Susan, Pete, and Marissa Chimento

Jenny, we were so sorry to hear of the loss of your husband Matthew. He sounded like a wonderful son, husband, soldier, brother and friend.
Thank you Matt for standing up for our country and for being such a loving son to your mother. You are a great role model for other sons in the world. Welcome to God's arms.
Nancy and family. My heart goes out to all of you. I feel so terrible for your loss, but we have to remember that Matt is with Our Lord and there is no greater peace in life than that. That is our true goal to achieve in our lifetime. He sounds like a wonderful person and knowing his mother, that does not surprise me. If at anytime, ever there is anything I can do for any of you, please just say the word. I am grieving with all of you. I just pray that Matt is at peace. May all of you find peace in knowing that you were blessed to have him be a part of your lives and live to enjoy all of your wonderful memories of him. My love and arms reach out to each and every one of you.
Dear Nancy, I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I never met him, but just through your facebook pages it was obvious how proud you were of him and the joy he brought into your life. My heart breaks for you. Keep fond memories of Matthew with you forever.
I did not know Matthew, but I worked with his mother-in-law, Ellen. I want to express my deepest sympathy to his family and friends as well as my gratitude for his service to our country. May God give you all strength during this time.
Nancy, I know I never met your son. he's sounds like he was a good son to you and a good person. My heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow, I pray that you and your family will find peace in knowing that he was a special gift to you from God for a short time, but he will be your son forever in your heart, and for ever in our next journey. With Love Denise Dodds
I have so many memories of wonderful times in Hornerstown with your boys and mine... they were always together...always laughing - with mischief usually just around the corner. Matt's smile was infectious. My heart is breaking for all of you. May your love for each other help you through this time and your memories keep you smiling forever. God has welcomed another angel. May He bless you with His love.
Thoughts and prayers to all of Matt's family ... Truly one of the nicest people I have ever had the privilege to meet .
Condolences to the family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless you all.
He was well-loved and will be missed greatly by everyone.
