My dearest Barbara and Steve, my heart goes out to you and your family on the passing of Matthew. I had no idea and was just looking at the website with memories of Chuck. I too am at a loss for words and know who much you all loved each other. I can't imagine a more difficult time than to lose someone that you love even with the knowledge that we will all be together again some day. I am praying for the Lord's comfort for you all as my heart breaks for what you are going through. Know that I will be sending prayers for your family that the Lord will just cover you with his comfort and love.

Matthew or as I knew him as Gamer/thehandicapiblegamer was an amazing friend and we were pretty close. He always did his best to try to cheer everyone else up and make sure they had a great time. He was kind, loving, thoughtful, and just an amazing person all around. I've had so many great memories with him over the past 2 and a 1/2 years, whether it be gaming, streaming, or just hanging out in a voice chat. Sending my condolences to the family and may he rest in peace forever.

Dan and I along with Hannah, Donavan and Drew are praying for you all. We are all in a state of shock and this doesn't seem real. We do know by our faith in God that Matthew has a new body and he is enjoying eternal life. I wonder what Grandma's reaction was when Matthew was coming to the gates of Heaven. I wonder that on a daily basis! I am at a loss for words. We miss you, Matthew. I'm glad that you came back for Grandma's services so we could be together one last time. Hoping that you have an endless supply of Mountain Dew in Heaven.
