Deeply saddened. We all share the grief with his family and each other.

We will forge on, for the sake of Matt and our other brothers who are no longer at our side.
Farewell, dear friend and brother.

I'm really sorry to hear this. I suck at writing this sort of stuff, but he was definitely one of the people from here that I admired for they way they handled things. I'm very sorry for his wife and son.

This terrible loss should not discourage any of us from continuing our pursuit of healing and recovery. Please take the time to grieve as you feel you are lead to, and to honor Mattheal's memory. But I am sure that Mattheal would not have wanted anyone to be diverted from reclaiming the lives that were taken from us.

Rest In Peace Mattheal

I will remember you

I didn't know Matt, but I know a lot of you posting about how much he meant to you.

I have been distant from MS lately, trying to make it on my own, and not doing very well. I came back to check in, and this is what I found.

May we all live with Matt in our hearts.

Recovery is possible. Hang in there, brothers.

I'm in shock. I can't find the words like some of you have. Like Can't, I've been mostly absent from MS of late and I checked the forum today to discover this unbelievably tragic news. I didn't know Matt as well as some of you did but when he and I did speak on here he was always one of the most kind and supportive people around. My heart is broken for his wife and son.

Rest in peace Matt.

This is sad news!
Didn't know Matt very well, but we commented on eachothers topics and in one of them i felt he was doing great.
Hearing that he passed away makes me feel sad. Even though i don't know him, i can feel that we lost a brother. It hits me harder than i first imagined..

I wish his wife and son all the strength and courage they need to carry on without a loving husband.

And to all here on MS who knew Matt well, take care! It's unfair, but try to move on and stay strong and work on recovery..

Wish you all the best my friends!
Trust me, you are worth it to love yourself!

I now know who I am - I've never been anybody else!

Reading these posts of thoughts in memorium, I am reminded how each of us makes an impact on the others here on far more than we could imagine.

Matt--I understand.

"Upon the shadowy shore of death the sea of trouble casts no wave. Eyes that have been curtained by the everlasting dark, will never know again the burning touch of tears. Lips touched by eternal silence will never speak again the broken words of grief. Hearts of dust do not break. The dead do not weep."

It seems like as "thrivers" we all go through ups and downs as we heal and grow. It's a history and pattern we will have most of our lives. Perhaps we get the distance between the highs and lows to be the swings aren't so dramatic. It's worth it.

It absolutely hurts when one of our own leaves unexpectedly. Matt's departing has certainly impacted me and made me think a lot about my own healing and more importantly how I can continue to grow and help those Matt did.

This unfortunate news fuels my fire to stay active, to help those in need and to keep more of our warriors on the battlefield. That is what Matt would want.

The best thing we can do is keep charging forward, keep helping, keep loving, keep supporting each other and slowly little by little bring forth the change that is necessary to bring an end to this madness.

Rest in peace Matt, but know that we are here to continue this fight! Our swords are sharpened, we're gonna get that castle back :-).
