I was so saddened to hear of Matthews passing. I had the privilege of knowing Matthew through the youth group at
FBC Flora and have heard Matthew give his testimony several times. His faith in God was unwavering and he shared
it boldly. I pray you find comfort in knowing he is in the presence of his Savior. Keeping you all in my thoughts and
