"Matt, I?ve known you all my life. You were my neighbor growing up and with that you ended up becoming my best friend. We lost touch over a few years and then we got in touch with each other again. I will miss you and my prayers to your family and friends. Until we meet again my friend Bonnie DeWester Croskey "

"Matt, it?s hard to say goodbye so I?ll just say until I see you again. You gave me so much. You helped me find me again and taught me I didn?t have to accept being treated like a door mat. My kids loved you appreciated all the fun you showed them and how to be a kid and have fun. Through good times and bad we always shared a special bond that no one could break. I will never forget all the things you taught me about riding motorcycles and so much more. Ride free my friend, I will love you and miss you always. "
