Matthew's Support Emma Fund
Recently we believe Matt had a bad reaction to his medication, resulting in him leaving home. We have contacted local police who have been looking for him, as well as some media outlets, such as Fox 25 news who have helped get the word out. Matt is not in a good mental state of being, and his Mother, Wife, and family are all very concerned for him! With him being gone it has been difficult for his wife and mother to work full time, while searching and communicating with family, and authorities.
We are asking for some help to cover some bills that he was assisting with paying like the mortgage, and some utilities, as well as a little extra to help cover the cost of an investigator to try and help us bring Matt home!
Anyone who has ever dealt with mental illness themselves, or in their family know the stigma that comes attached with it. Matthew is a kind, generous, and caring husband, father, and son! He loves his wife, and daughter, and would never intentionally do anything to hurt his family. However, right now he is not himself, and he may not be fully aware of his actions. We need to find him, we need to bring him home, and we need to continue to help him through treatment! Nobody ever asks to be handed these struggles…and our family is close and has been doing what we can to provide support from all over the country! We just need a little extra help! Anything donated will 100% go to finding Matt, and caring for his family in this difficult time! Thank you.
I ask that you continue to share and donate as all proceeds will go to help Matty's 2 year old daughter Emma and wife Catherine. Some of you may have had the chance to meet Emma and Catherine at Matty's memorial.
Emma is just like her Dad, full of live and energy, and she LOVES the ocean! She will swim until her lips are blue, and when you ask her if she wants to go in and warm up, she answers "I okay!" She needs our love and support! Thank you all again!
A celebration of Matt’s life will be held in the church basement immediately following the service. Should anyone want to share a memory of Matt, which the family could keep, either photograph or written story, please bring along (childhood, sports, funny, school, work, adventure, serious). These memories are greatly appreciated by the family and will be a cherished gift.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Matthew Amsler Memorial Fund c/o Cape Cod 5 Bank, 129 Route 137, East Harwich MA 02645.
Thank you to all who have reached out to our family this past week. You truly have no idea how much your memories, thoughts, and prayers have meant to our family during this difficult time. We are so blessed to have so many people who loved and cared for Matty! He was a very loved and cherished man.
Matthew J Amsler, 24, of Chatham MA. He was the husband of Catherine, father of 2 year old Emma, and son of Mary McHugh and James Amsler. He was a cousin, a nephew, and a friend.
He loved the ocean and enjoyed boating. He traveled, and was an expert at making people laugh. Always up for some fun, and to push the boundaries to make an unforgettable memory! He will be missed by so many, but his memory will live on in his daughter! We will share memories of Matt, stories of his life, and how he touched so many.
Thank you all for your love!
Mental illness is something so many people struggle with. We loved Matty and we were here to help him during his difficult times. He was working so hard to be a devotes husband, a dedicated father, and a loving son, and each day although difficult he was making that effort.
We love Matty so deeply, and are saddened that such a young life was lost so soon.
We will continue to be together, and spend time as a family sharing memories and thoughts of Matt. We will share his life with his daughter Emma, and we will continue to love him now as our Angel as we did when he was here with us on Earth. Thank you.
I'm so sorry. Will donate soon. I am from western mass and was actually at the cape in early November and remember this young man on a news story. Nice looking young man. Sorry for his and the family's suffering. Mental Illness has touched my family so I know the extreme stress and heartache involved.
