Matt, I知 sure I speak for everyone, at Torqued-Up when I say. You will be missed so very much, each and every day. We were so blessed to know you, and to have you for our friend. Knowing you was such a gift, we値l cherish till the end. You were a positive influence, in a time where life has none. Your presence seemed to pick us up, you were our special one. Your smile was so contagious, it would make us all feel good. Your playful little attitude, seemed to make us wish we could. It seems unfair to live our lives, without you by our sides. That you致e gone on before us, and left us with our strife. It is with faith we carry on, just knowing you池e alive. Wishing we would cry no more, and telling us you池e fine. We値l try real hard to live our lives, like you would want us to. We値l carry you within our hearts, so we値l be close to you. Your memory will stay with us, until we meet again. For you have made an impact, on our very souls, my friend! Go fishing on the other side, spend time with your loved ones. Play some ball, throw a few, keep that smile, and have some fun.

I feel extremely fortunate to have known Matt. Matt was younger than me, but I looked up to him for what a wonderful person he was. I loved going to visit my younger brother Ross at Austin College and a big part of that love had to do with his friends. Matt, or Slim, as his AC and Sherman friends liked to call him, has always been one of my favorite people. I thank him for what he meant to me, but more importantly what he meant to my brother. Slim gave Ross a friend he could love and trust unlike any other friend Ross has had before or since. The entire Reedy family loves Slim and what he meant to us. Our prayers goes out to all of his family and friends who were undoubtedly touched the same way we were.

Growing up as kids next door next to Zac, Cody, & Chris we were our own little clan, & then comes in Matt. He fit in without exception. One more was added to it which made us stronger and invincible. Those long summer days of running around the neighborhood causing chaos in our little way will never be lost. He was always there everyone. He will be missed and loved.

Matt was an unbelievable person; with passion for life. He was a person who brought happiness to a room with his presence. Matt will be deeply missed but not forgotten. He is in a better place now.

Lisa, David, Andy, Cody, Zac, Chris, and Gran--I hope that you all know and understand how dear Matt is to me. I always admired his toughness. Matt was a heck of an athlete who could play many positions in many different sports. More importantly, he was such a loyal and supportive friend. The only negative thing I ever heard come out of his mouth was due to the fact he wasn't playing both ways our senior year in high school. We always made sure we found each other when offense and defense were swithcing for a quick word with each other. We even wrote each others numbers on our shoes before every game. I missed Matt a lot during our college years--I never had another teammate with so much fire and fearlessness and I sure could have used that in college. He treated my mother, father, and brothers like his own and I received the same treatment from all of you. I love Matt and I love all of you. I know that it is so hard to find positives in this, but know that Matt is able to watch over everybody that he loves now--and he loves that.

My condolences go out to Matt's family. Matt was in my Texas History class at Haggard MS in Plano. Each day I could count on Matt to participate and volunteer, always with a smile on his face. Matt will be forever remembered by those of us at Haggard.
