    Rest in Peace good buddy. Thank you for being a great friend for close to 20 years. I will remember all the good times we’ve had together. From the mall trips, Pirate games, wing nights, midnight buffets, happy hours and just hanging out together watching football. You were a once in a lifetime friend. I will always cherish the time we spent together. I’ll say this just for you. We Are Penn State. Love you forever.

  2. Matt we are so sorry to hear that you left us so soon, you will be missed. I remember you and Brittany coming to my house when I lived in New Brighton and swam in my pool and making the two of you chicken patty sandwiches. The best though was when you came down to my house with your hat and sunglasses . You made me laugh becuase you thought you was a cool little guy. Thank you for all the remembrances. Rest in Peace Sweet guy!
