Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Flynn Family,

Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. I just found out last night that Matt had passed away and immediately became extremely sad. Although I had not spoken with Matt in over 20 years, I have always held him in high regard. We had many classes together throughout our high school days and he was someone I looked up to. He was always a very happy, congenial, and confident person. I remember him being extremely friendly, always smiling, and always having the right answers. I wish you all much love, peace, and comfort. The world has truly lost a good one. Please know that I will continue to pray for him as I hope he is watching over us all in heaven. Please reach out to me if there is anything I can do in his name to help carry on his legacy. I will miss him.

Dearest Flynn Family,

I was deeply saddened to learn of Matt's passing, and my thoughts and prayers are with you in these difficult times. I have not talked to Matt in 20 years, but I can vividly remember what a kind and easy going person he was. I hope you can find solace in knowing what a great person he was, and cherish his memory.

Matt - You were one of the most genuine, kind, and hilarious people I've ever known. I'm sorry it had been so long since we talked. Rest in peace my friend.

I feel blessed for knowing Matt and for the time we had him in our lives. He was an amazing individual with so many talents. I was always in awe in his knowledge of so many things, and I loved his stories! I'll cherish the times George and I had with him. He was a good ear, and an even better friend. The world lost a great mind and truly good soul last week. We love you Matt and will miss you every day. Love, Kate
