Condolence & Memory Journal

Candle

The memories I had with Matt will always be in my heart. He was and will always be one of the most caring person I've met in a while. We've been friends since 2010 and I will always remember the good morning text messages from him, and how he'd always say he's got nothing new going on, but he would always listen to my drama. He was an amazing kid. We hung out in the city multiple times, and I miss him dearly. I wish he had more time here on Earth, but I know he's doing good in Heaven. I know eventually we will both meet each other again and come back in the next life. I've always known that me and Matt were meant to know each other in this life as well as previous lives. As a Spiritualist, I believe in many lives. This won't be the last time that our paths will cross. Matt, if you're reading this, I wish we could've hung out more. I miss you so much.
Love you bro,
Jules

Peggy, Steve and Michael. My deepest and most sincere condolences to you all. I am grateful for the years that I was privileged to spend with Matt while he was here with us and I do believe that he was a gift from God if only for a short time. "Matt....sleep on beloved & take your rest. You are sadly missed but will never be forgotten" ........ Blossom.

My sons and I will miss Matt. We have many fond memories of spending time with him at those wonderful Doré Christmas parties and on our camping trips. Matt particularly enjoyed sitting around the campfire gazing at what he invariably referred to as a blazing fire! More recently I have delightful memories of having a beer or two with him on the patio in Quogue while discussing music.
Matthew was a good boy who grew up to be a good man. The Noonans will miss him.
