Your Memories of Matt Live Forever...

My best friend

By: Nick Wennerholm Matt was my best friend. We spent our years in passion for music and all things. He was loved and loved all in brotherly fellowship. I was honored to have someone so special in my life.

Memories

By: Marlene Nadel I have no images except in my mind of Matthew.  While at CRI-Help Matthew who was quite fun loving decided to TP a bedroom. There was toilet paper all over. I also heard he was dancing with his buds on the mattress with those who were about his age.  He got in

Tall Hands & Ten Fingers

By: Nick Wennerholm Another day playing around and having fun with music

Matty

By: Karhy Bouley The Bouley family have many beautiful memories of Matt (he was Matty to us). When Kevin was in Jr. High, he brought his friend Matt home to hang out.  Kevin introduced Matt to me.  This Kid had giant blue eyes,  bleach blonde hair,  and a huge smile.  He was full of life.

Little Matt

By: Edd Hogan I was visiting the Randells when Mat was a little kid.  As I was walking with Craig out to the car as we got to the sidewalk and I heard Mat yell my name.  He was rollerblading with kneepads, elbow pads, and helmet and coming towards me very fast.  So I stopped

Missing Mr. Matty

By: Doug Dubin I remember the first time I saw Matt many years ago when he was in his late teens. Who is this hip, slick, cool kid. There was something magnetic about him. He just pulled you in. Little did I know then, that I would become very close with Craig and that we

life with mattaguew

By: Aaron S (aka matthew’s brother) I have went back and forth about what I wanted to post or say here. I have landed on just expressing how much matthew meant to me. Not only to me but to anybody who he came in contact with. Something about Matthew soul shine brighter then the sun.

Daddy and co-parent

By: Amber Stephenson Matthew is the daddy to this magical little boy Brodie. To see them both in the same room was nothing short of magical. Matty was our best friend, daddy, partner in crime and someone we admire and love deeply. WE are both entirely heart broken that he has went home to rest

My Daddy

By: Brodie Stephenson Dear Daddy, I love you more then anything. You are the best Daddy around. I miss you so much and I’m so sad that you are now in heaven with Jesus. I have a lot of questions and I know Pop Pop and Gigi and Mommy will help me ask and remember.

Missing Matt

By: Maggie I miss our bratty Matty more than I can express in words. I literally have no words. Sending love!

Remembering Matt Then & Now

By: Naoma Nicholls When I first met Matt, he was a teenager & a pain in the ass. He was still a pain in the ass a year ago when I last saw him at Craig’s 50th sobriety anniversary, but a different kind of “pain in the ass.” This time he had a twin—Aaron—wearing the

Not Just Kidstuff

By: Laura Walker I’ve known Matt since he was a skinny, zitty teenager… not much has changed since then (wink wink). As a man, he was just as fun-loving, outrageously silly and sweetly affectionate as he was when a kid. He never got embarrassed when my sisters and I teased him, even though there was
