Ron and Julie
We want to express our heartfelt sympathy for your loss. That brief time we spent with the three of you a number of years ago was memorable not just for the rhubarb pie and reunion with Ron but the love and devotion that was so evident. Matthew’s life was complicated, but filled with joy, meaning, courage and accomplishment.

Matthew – I’m heartbroken at the news that you have passed away. The world seems darker without your wonderful, bright smile in it. I found a picture today of the two of us laughing together and I thought that just summed up you and our relationship so well. You were one of my best friends and like a brother to me. You truly changed my life for the better in so many ways and I will be forever grateful to you for that and for our friendship. You made me a better person, you helped me learn how to be brave and try new things even when they scared me, and you and your parents showed me the meaning of unconditional love. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but when we were kids I used to invent special machines so you could go on adventures with me like climbing trees or riding bikes – I like to think you’re doing that stuff now without the need for my inventions. I will never forget you, Matthew. I love you, Abbey

Julie and Ron – I’m so sorry for your terrible loss. Thank you for sharing yourself and your amazing son with the world and with me – you all touched so many lives including mine. Seeing your love and devotion to Matthew has been an incredible honor and a privilege. You are like family to me and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you, Abbey

Matthew, I am so sorry to hear from your mom that you have passed from this world. You will always have a place in my heart, as will your mom and dad. I was so happy to be a part of your life very briefly when you were in high school. You made my day so much better by laughing and snorting, and more so the faster I pushed your wheelchair. You were a character and had a silly personality, just like me. You were a champ, never complained and always participated. I remember some long physical therapy sessions and you took it all in stride. Because I have an only son, you always reminded me of the love we mothers have for our boys. Whenever I was around you and your sweet mom, I could feel the love you shared and this love was contagious. I will never forget the happiness I saw between you and your mom and dad. If there is a heaven, I know you are there and enjoying what if feels like to run and swim and to be chased by the puppies that surround you. I can still hear your laugh and see your smile. The world has lost a beautiful soul. Thank you for sharing some of your happiness with me. Your Friend, Maria

Julie and Ron - Though we haven't seen Matthew since he was very young, we "saw" him through the words and pictures you shared over the years. Our hearts are full at your loss of Matthew and his obviously incredible spirit. You will be close in our thoughts and prayers today and always.


Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Julie and Ron - I am holding you in my heart with tenderness. I am so happy to have spent some of Matthew's journey with him at BHS. He was quick to share his smile and brought joy to the classroom. He was opinionated about things of importance such as his music and made me giggle many a time at his outspoken disagreement when "his mom" tried to switch his "cool" tunes to classical. What were you thinking mom? :)

Matthew will forever be in our lives.
With many hugs - Rebecca

Julie and Ron,
I feel so blessed to have met and been apart of Matthew's life. He always had a way to let me know what he was feeling, happy, irritated, or silly. I loved when he would bounce his shoulders up and down and give a large belly "ahhhhh" in his playful tone! You both have been amzing dedicated parents and my heart goes out to you in this difficult time.
Love to you all,

Matthew has always had a very large family in Iowa who loved him dearly. Our daughter Leah could get him to smile and laugh like this when she would give his parents a hard time. Our son Dylan loved sharing his birthday with cousin Matthew. His life on this earth only lasted 26 years, but God keeps His promises. Matthew's smile will last an eternity.

When I think of Matthew I instantly smile. His quick smile, his humor and his gentle spirit is what he brought to this world every single day. He was one of my first students as a sped teacher. He taught me so much and boy did we have fun. Julie and Ron, I have loved going over to dinner at your house over the years and spending time with you both and Matthew. He will be missed and he was so loved! I know this is hard yet you have us as your communty of people who adored your son and I am here for you!!!

I am so, so sorry to hear of Matthew's passing. His great smile and his infectious laugh will be missed - and fondly remembered - by all who had the pleasure of meeting him.

Fly high and free, Matthew ~ all my love to your family.
