    Michael (best friend) says:
    Memories? Just one single memory with my brother? Every single day with you was a memory, every time I looked at you and said let’s go mess something up we made a entire day of it. Me and you had so many problems going on in our life, we had so many inconveniences and things that brought us down to our knees every night. But we stayed strong for each other we had love for one another and we both knew that. I love you so much more then a brother could ever mean to me once my lifetime. You were truly the little brother my mom never gave me. I miss you so much Matthew and my heart is so broken. We miss you so much, we all love you so much. I can’t wait to see you one more time my brother even if it’s in a casket I need to say goodbye to you, I need to let you know how much I love you and how much you’ve done for me and my life. I will miss you for the rest of my life, I will always cry over you and I will always wish I could have stopped this. When I get to the funeral they’re gonna have to carry me out because I’m not leaving my brother ever again. I’m truly broken.

    I'm so sorry Matt, I'm sorry that I never actually told you how much that I care about you. I'm sorry that I didn't get to hangout with you more. I've known you for 8 years, you were practically my brother. You and Seth were best friends and thats how I met you. My name in your phone was Lil Sis and yours in mine was Big Brother. I miss you and I will make sure your name lives on in my heart and in Seths heart. Seth is going to get a tattoo for you that says Tbp. I still have all of the voice messages you sent me from about a month or so ago and I listen to them all the time. One of my favorite ones that always makes me cry is you saying "Let me live my life". Rest in piece big brother... I love you <3

    Matthew and I had both our good times and our bad. At the end of the day though we could both make each other smile and be happy. That's what Matt loved to do he loved making people smile and making people happy. My favorite memory with Matt is probably the first time we hung out he came to my house and we layed in my front yard looking at the stars. Matt was such an outgoing and humorous person. His whole smile could like up the room. Monday oh how hard that days gonna be 1 month without you and everyone's first Christmas without you. R.I.P matt love u

    Your r.o.d Torie. says:
    Everyone is posting memories. So I guess my favorite memory of you was when Dakota broke my heart the first time. You let me come over immediately. Dawson was there. I was a fucking wreck hair in a bun and a giant sweatshirt. You hugged me. God you hugged me so fucking hard. We went into moms room and we started pillow fighting. Of all things I said fuck the pillow and started hitting you. I jumped on your back and you spun me around in circles. You threw me on the bed and told me you loved me. You kept ducking with me throwing shit. And I chased you allllll through the house. Somehow we made it through the door in moms bathroom and we were on the sidebar of the house. You were trying to outrun me and jump the fence. Before you made it there you ran into the grill. AND MANN THAT THING WENNNNT DOWN. broke the fucking grill. we went inside like the police. And everyone was like??? We could not stop laughing. You let me lay my head on your shoulder. We were laying down in your bed listening to music. I started crying like a bitch. Not because I was sad. But in the moment I realized i loved you with everything I had in me. Your mom walked in and started taking pictures of us. And eventually Dawson came back in the room to chill with us. But god those moments with you were so precious and so fucking pure. You couldn’t stop smiling. I’ll never forget it.
