Matty, I still have the picture you made me take of the watermelon that you grew in the backyard in Kettering. You were so proud of it even though it was only the size of a kiwi. =) I will keep it forever and I will keep you in my heart forever. I love you and miss you. Your big sis,

Matt was my best friend growing up before I left for the Army and It hurts that we ever grew apart... I'm gonna miss him and all the good times we had together... My condolences go out to Don, Carla Corey and the rest of the family.

Don, Carla, and Family,
I know there are no words that will erase the heartache you feel, but I want you to know how very sad we feel for your loss. Lannah and I just seen Matthew not long ago. I commented on how he still had the 'little boy smile' that could melt your heart. You raised a very kind and loving young man, and I know you'll always be proud of him. I thank God that he gave him to you, and his life gave you wonderful memories.

Hello, I was Matt's baseball coach along w/Ray Womack in 2000-2002 at EKRC. What a great kid, what a great baseball player! Cannot believe this has happened. He will be met in heaven by my mom, Juanita, who was the all time scorekeeper for our games, and just loved Matt. He and other players came to her funeral in 2006. Please know that you raised a great, well mannered, respectful, focused kid. That is what I always saw in him. Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to your family. Darell, Molly, Bryan & Kevin Butts.

Matt,
Bro i miss you so much already. I want you to know I'm here for support for your family and friends. God had a plan for you and in the short stay you had in this greater picture you did a lot with it. Matt you did so much for me, and you were a true friend throughout everything. I'm proud to say you are more than a friend to me. You will be missed. And through this all we know you are up there dancing with angels all over the gold streets of heaven. You are finally free bro, free from everything you went through. I'm sad to see you go; but in my heart I'm so happy you no longer have to fight the battle of addiction. I wish I could have seen you one last time, but I know one day I will see you again. I Love You Bro! Take it easy up there and relax.

I have so many memories of Matt from school. I'm still in shock. He was taken too soon from all of us. I hope he's in a better place & watching down on all of us now. Rest in peace.

I will never forget Matt as long as I live. He was ready to play baseball or football up at state farm whenever anyone felt like it. He was always there for ya if ya needed him and was truly a good hearted man. No matter what life threw at him he would always fight back and try to overcome it. He has left us down here on earth with a large whole that may never be filled. He was a great soul and will be greatly missed by all that new him. Rest in peace my friend, we shall meet again.

Uncle Matt,
I love you so much. It's not fair that you were taken so soon. I never thought that the last time I said goodbye to you, that it meant forever. You're forever loved, forever missed and forever in our hearts.
