Last Friday evening, the lives of our dear friend Matt, his wife Melissa, and their 2 children were changed in the most unexpected and unimaginable of ways. Matt lost his life suddenly in a tragic incident, leaving behind in utter shock his beloved Melissa, and the lights of their lives, their twins Max and Mia, who are just 4 years old. His family and friends are left with memories of the good times they shared with him and the honest warmth with which he touched their lives.
Those of us who knew Matt well remember him to be remarkably down-to-earth, kind, funny, modest and hard-working. Like any devoted parent, he wanted nothing more than to give Max and Mia a future that was bright, safe and full of promise.
We have started this Go Fund Me in an effort to raise funds for Max and Mia's health, wellness and educational needs. It is our hope that this will provide them an opportunity at the future Matt worked so hard and lovingly to build for them. All funds will be directed to Melissa Burns for forthcoming use.
We are forever grateful for your help in honoring not only Matt's memory but further, the love he had for Melissa, Max and Mia which guided his every action.
