Update on Matthew- With a heavy heart, I regret to say that Matthew has passed away. While we know he is in a better place with his creator we here on earth will miss him deeply. Please continue to pray for all who are mourning the loss of this amazing young man. Matthew Carter you will never be forgotten. We will carry you in our hearts always and your story will live on. Please read below for this sweet boy's story. Hi my name is Tristan Welch. I'm here on behalf of Matthew Carter and his family. I am one of his close friends. We had first hour together last year and this year. Friday night/Saturday morning, a 14 and 13 year old boy attempted to rob him because of his prized possession...his Camaro. Matthew did not give his car up, so the 14 year old shot him. He is now in ICU at Lourdes fighting for his life. Matthew is such a sweet soul, never was mean to anyone, and always wanted to meet new people. He never turns anyone away no matter what they look like, sound like, etc. He loves giving hugs and having a big smile on his face, always there to pick you up no matter who you are or what you are going through. Matthew always has wise words for you and you better bet on him having a lecture for you too. Every single day he comes sit by me, ask me how I'm doing, and makes sure I'm ok and if not he'll pick me up and I look forward to that everyday. I'm hoping you can help me and my family raise money for his medical bills.
