Matthew, a beautiful soul, impactful warm heart, dear friend, brilliant mind, and much more, you will be forever missed, the world had a beautiful gift taken before the fruits were able to fully ripen, but the seeds are still there. an empty spot once filled by an enormous light is present, I hope it can be filled again by the love you left us with, when we can feel again, and water the seeds you once shared with us.
