To the Annie and the Samson Family... Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Matt a few times, the stories of him showed how amazing a person he was. May he rest in peace! Sending love and prayers.

Ann, Pegge told me of Matt's illness and my heart broke for him and for you. Now it breaks again; he died on our Matt's birthday. I can tell you that it does get easier, but never is life back to "normal." This parenting a child who is no longer part of this earthly life is so damn hard. But I also know from experience that love never dies and I hope that you're already seeing little glimpses of your Matt in his new life.
Hugs from one Matt's mom to another.

You only had to meet Matt for a few short moments to begin to laugh and smile along with him. Then the next time you ran into him, he would greet you as one of his closest friends. I have many fond memories just chatting with Matt when I would run into him, or as I knew him "Sammy Matthews", a continuation of an old joke.

One memory in particular stands out from when we were spending time at my brother Joel's duplex after a night with friends in Seymour, and we were talking about how it's crazy that we were all growing up - but luckily having fun like nothing had ever changed, and loving life despite working hard and starting families. We then agreed on how amazing glass bottled sun drop was.

He was truly a generous, kind, and inspiring person. My heart goes out to all those who love and miss him. I hope people share the endless love and memories that Matt shared with everyone he met. May those memories and precious photos comfort you and help you keep him close.

Thinking of you.

It is hard to find the words to express our sorrow in hearing of Matt's passing. So very many hearts are hurting with the loss of this young man. You only had to spend a short time with him to realize he was an incredibly special person. We pray his family can find some comfort in knowing he left such a positive footprint during his much too short life here on earth. We were blessed with the opportunity to know him and grateful for the laughs and smiles he shared with us.
