Michael & Kathy, I’ve admired Matthew and your relationship with him from afar for many years now. Many people do not get to experience that level of love and respect for one another ever and, although my heart breaks over your loss and your family must be experiencing the pain of grief, I am comforted by the way you hold onto the good and are honoring your son’s soul and memories. Those things you can never lose. Love, Ayn

Matthew lived in San Antonio, TX for 19 years, and graduated from Johnson High School. Matthew never took life for granted and had many joys in life including his family, the ocean, trips to the beach to swim and feel the sand, walking in nature, picking out freshly cut flowers at the store, rollercoasters, drawing outside with chalk, VeggieTales, Dr. Seuss, Adele, Buckwheat Zydeco, amongst other musical groups, Rubix Cube, his IPad and other sorts of electronics, and bowling, in which he earned a gold, silver and bronze medal in the Texas State Special Olympics.
He participated in many walks for autism and never missed an opportunity to cheer on his brothers at swim meets and choir concerts!
