So sad to hear of Matthew's untimely and sudden passing. May you know that in our hearts we are sharing your sadness. There are no words that can begin to express the grief you are experiencing. In time, I hope your wonderful memories of Matthew will bring you comfort and help you to heal. Nancy (Jenny's friend)
My condolences and love to you Mark on the tragic loss of your son, and to the rest of the family.
My heart goes out to the many people who love Matthew and were blessed to know him throughout his 16years. The loss of Matthew is impossible to express in words, yet we try to do so, to show how deeply we are hurting for and with his family & friends, especially Maria, Thomas & Joseph. A quote that is so precious and true says, 'From the deepest love comes the deepest grief'...your grief will be deep because you loved (& love) Matthew so immensely. Matthew is safely in Heaven and I know that he knows how very loved he is. He will never truly be gone because he will be in hearts and memories always. All my love and prayers, Jenny Marsh.
Farewell Matthew you were one of my best mates in primary and the start of high school i wish i could've told you how much i thank you for helping me through the hard times of my childhood and i wish i had just messaged you more to keep to up to date with your personal life. Gone too soon see you up there brother💓
My heart aches for you and yours. I pray Gods grace will get you through such a sad time. I never knew Matthew but I will remember him and you and the love I have seen. Lord be with you.
God bless you Matthew from Rodney
