Matt loved the freedom of being outdoors, shooting guns and playing with his boys. He was very intuitive and enjoyed crafting and creating projects with his hands.

I am at a loss for words, so I post someone else's. God’s Lent Child by Author Unknown I’ll lend you for a little while, a child of mine, God said For you to love the while he lives and mourn for when he’s dead. It may be six or seven years, or forty-two or three But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me? He’ll bring his charms to gladden you and should his stay be brief You’ll always have his memories as a solace in your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return, But there are lessons taught below I want this child to learn. I’ve looked this whole world over in my search for teachers true And from the folk that crowd Life’s lane I have chosen you. Now will you give him all your love and not think the labour vain, Nor hate me when I come to take this lent child back again? I fancy that I heard them say “Dear God, thy will be done. For all the joys this child will bring the risk of grief we’ll run. We will shelter him with tenderness, we’ll love him while we may And for all the happiness we’ve ever known, we’ll ever grateful stay. But should the angels call him much sooner than we’d planned We will brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.”

Prayers are with this entire family during this very difficult time. We were neighbors to Matt , Emily, David and Gideon. We have missed them being right next door and we are so thankful that you have God in your lives and know that you will all meet again. The news was such a shock for everyone. We know that Matt was a very thorough and careful young man. You will remain in our prayers in the weeks and months ahead. My sweet Grandma lost 3 of her 6 sons and her husband before the Lord took her home. Emily please reach out to us if we can do anything for you. We are praying for you to have Peace and find strength in the truth that God has a plan for your each of you.

We always knew Matt to have a positive, happy outlook on life since first we knew him as a teenager. Our hearts are broken with all the Bundys, Sundermans, and McAnultys at his loss to us all but pray that his family will find comfort in knowing that Jesus is holding him now.

So about loss I did not know Matt all that well but I know he will be missed. May God give you comfort at this hard time.

Matt & Emily were my neighbors for 5 years. Matt was ALWAYS so nice & helpful. When we were all outside with our families at the same time, we'd end up chatting while our kids played in the yard together. My kids & I would always wave at Matt as he was coming home from work. It still seems unreal he's gone. Prayers for Emily, David & Gideon & his family.

We are praying for the entire family during this time. Matt was an amazing young man growing up! He always had a fun, mischievous smile and twinkle to his eyes. He was always up to something fun! Even in his youth he had a great heart for others. My heart breaks for those he left behind and we will be praying for you in the months ahead. It is comforting to know that as he left this earth he was experiencing the presence of God like he never had before!
