Funeral Expenses for Matthew Devillez

Matthew was a victim of physical, mental, and emotional abuse from someone he trusted, that ultimately lead to him taking his own life on January 1st of this year. Words can't explain how loved he was. Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting this brilliant, colorful, energetic, and loving man instantly became his friend. He is not only loved by his entire (and quite large) family, but any living being who had the chance to spend any amount of time with, knew he was special. He loved his niece, Lily, the most. Their relationship was the purest form of love, and she adored her Uncle Matthew.  Our family will forever be missing its brightest light. Matthew was beyond special. He was, in so many ways, the stable rock, the glue that held it together,  the voice of reason, and the one who loved the most. 

Our family is thankful for any and all contributions during these dark times. Any donations that exceed funeral expenses will be donated to a suicide awareness charity in Matthew's honor.
