  • Matt was the Dad I never had when I met his standards. I know he loved The Lord and that he loved everyone in his own way. When Franc passed I told my dad that Frac was ok and in my heart I know Franc and Matt are skiing in heaven. I love and miss you Matt!!!!

    Love Tarah

  • My condolences to all Matt’s family. I have fond childhood memories of Matt ~ the boy that Teri and I adored when he visited his grandparents in Havre. He was fun, carefree, and a good summer friend. His “southern accent” and good looks were quite charming…

    I loved Ginny, Frankie & Maggie too! – wonderful family and memories at the Hopewell’s house on 7th Street.

    You all are in my thoughts and prayers ~ Love, Carla

  • Matt was my only “bigger” cousin and wow did I think he was something….A Handsome, built strong Montana boy. He had a great smile, and seemed to be popular whereever he went. I was that girl who thought he was great, and wild, and free. And now he really is free. Say hi to Frankie for me and find me a mountain up there. I love you, Elaina
