I have only good memories of Matt in my 4th grade classroom at Starr. He was always pleasant to work with and was so well-liked by other kids. Matt brought me back a shell from his spring break trip to Florida. I could tell he was loved by his parents and brothers. Being loved by others does not always prevent this kind of tragedy or make a person in pain reach out for help. Matt's passing is a grievous loss and one that his family and close buddies will adjust to but never truly get over. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during these dark, dark days.
