He died quickly when a blood clot dislodged and travelled to his lungs. The Medical Examiner's office said there was nothing that could have been done to save him. He was 32.
Unfortunately, Matthew was uninsured, and so we are reaching out for your help so that we can cover the expenses of necessary travel, the transportation of his remains, cremation services, support for his girlfriend of more than 10 years, Mika, and a modest memorial so friends and family may gather to celebrate his life.
Thank you again for all the love you have shown. And, thank you for considering this request so we may honor his memory.
