Im so sorry to hear this news! I remember growing up Matt and his friend Max Camper being friends and loving the Doobie Bros...I think there is a Trinity talent show video somewhere! I also remember him scaring Katy and I after watching scary movies, loving music and cooking. You are in our thoughts and prayers!
