    Words cannot express the sorrow that we are all going through in this time. Please know that I will be there for Jacob and the family in any way you need! I’m sorry I could not make it Saturday, the jazz band is at MSU all day. Please know I’ll be thinking and praying for you Saturday. I pray for your family, and hope you can find comfort in this time of mourning.

    My deepest condolences to Matt’s sons, family and friends on the passing of a kind gentle soul. Matt and I worked together at Great Lakes Wholesale. Matt was always kind, helpful and a genuine person. He will be missed by all. I won’t be able to attend Matt’s funeral as I have a funeral for a family member to attend. May Matt’s sons, family and friends find comfort in knowing he is resting peacefully in the arms of Jesus.
