Matt's Funeral Expenses

I am starting this page in hopes of reaching out to friends, family, and strangers for a little help and support.  A friend of mine has to bury his brother.  When someone dies suddenly and unexpected the financial burden of funeral costs usually falls on the remaining family members, so any small donation would be greatly appreciated. Mark just wants to give his brother the proper burial that he deserves.

On February 15, 2018, Mark received the terrible news that his brother Matt had taken his own life. Death by suicide not only affects the person who died, but also others, "suicide survivors".  Having lost someone to suicide myself, I know of the devastation it leaves behind for the surviving family members. Mark and Matt also lost their mother to suicide.  The shock and grief that consumes you after you lose someone is overwhelming. It can feel like you have fallen into a deep hole and will never be able to get out.  Suicide is something no family should have to experience – especially more than once.

Matt Heinrich’s life was cut short at 36 years old. He was an incredible kind person with a great sense of humor.  An entrepreneur and a go getter to say the least. He was very business savvy and never hesitated to take a risk to get ahead in life but besides his work his family mattered most. He will be truly missed.
