Please accept my deepest condolences. This will be the hardest thing you ever have to deal with in your lifetime. I wish no one had to feel the pain of losing a child. My heart is aching for all of you. Words cannot heal, but they can let you know that we care, are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. May God surround you with his abounding love, grace and strength. Keep Matt in your heart. Peace be with you.

My heart goes out to the Paulson family, Matt's girlfriend Sara and all his friends and loved ones. Sorry I'm in New Hampshire and can not be there to hold Amanda and Zach's hand and offer hugs at this incredibly difficult time. Losing someone so young and in this way is a devastating loss. Remember the laughs and beauty he brought into your life, after losing my brother it was something that helped get me through. Sending my love and prayers at this difficult time. Love, Tricia Mahoney

MATTHEW, our heart was broken without a warning, no words spoken you were taken away someone said you could not stay empty and lonely is what we are we lost a precious shining star our family torn apart your world began with a promising start life is unfair this difficult cross we must bear strength and courage we will find our special child always in our mind a place in heaven is where you sit looking at that star you lit in our thoughts forever you will be never knowing why someone set you free. WE LOVE YOU MATTHEW. BABS, MIKE, AMANDA AND LEE I hope you can find comfort soon, this is so hard I still remember all 4 boys we had at such a close age at Christmas time playing on the living room floor at Grandpa Hardt's Jarrod being just 6 months older then Matt. I do have pictures I will look for them. Please take care and keep in touch. Love Sherrie,

Oh, how I've pondered to say something to comfort Matt's family, my friends. Clearly no words can soften the pain being felt at this time. Hopefully, in the future perhaps, all the sorrow will be replaced with the joy of Matt's memory he has left behind.
