Over the past week we have been surrounded by an amazing amount of love and prayers. Many of you have pulled me aside or messaged me about ways to support Matt's girls....his beloved Corrie who he met in preschool and married in 2008, Layla (6) who in many ways is Matt's mini, and sweet happy Charlotte (2).
As much as we can we'd like to keep the girls surrounded by what is familiar to them for the immediate future including keeping the girls in the same house and enrolled in the same activities (like gymnastics). As it sits right now, it will take some time to process death benefit claims with Matt's employer and the Government. Though this is normal, Corrie is currently left without any positive funds coming in. All funds raised by this campaign will immediately go to Corrie for Layla and Charlotte's living expenses and potentially college fund.
You can learn more about Matt on our site at caringbridge.org. For this who left cards at the visitation or memorial mass, we have slowly just started to read them and we thank you for your words of sorrow.
