I don't recall ever directly interacting with him, but I remember reading his posts and thinking he seemed a nice fellow. R.I.P.

Good to see that his GoFundMe page is well North of its target already, and such a worthy cause.

A few of us are going to see him laid to rest and pay our last respects* tomorrow.
I still find it a bit hard to comprehend

No disrespect intended but Matt passed nearly 4 weeks ago!?

The proper BCB thing to do is to chuck it over a racist, isn't it?

Just got back from Matt's funeral..... a dozen or so BCB'ers in attendance .... the place was rammed too...

A lovely send off - he had us laughing amongst the tears, even at the end.

He was very much loved and will be very much missed. RIP Matt, you little git.

For a little fella he's left a big hole.
He's a simpleton. 200 years ago they wouldn't have let him milk a cow.

It was a special day. Matt made an impact everywhere he went. He was joiner and was always first to want to make things happen. It was great hearing how he made a difference in his workplaces, in his hobbies and in his passions. There were people there from the Post Office, from his improv group, from the Cinema's where he worked, as well as an impressive representation from his friends here on BCB. And the great thing was he was always the same Matt. He bent everyone's ear about Otway, and the Searchers. He rabbited on about the Aylesbury Ducks and whichever football team he was supporting that week to everyone. He was full of passion and the need to share and had an almost evangelical zeal when extolling the things he loved, be that films or football, family or Frankie Valli. I was proud to be there. I was proud to a part of this amazing group of friends and colleagues. But most of all I was broken hearted that he was gone. Sometimes nothing makes any sense.

That's heartfelt and sums up exactly how I feel today Michael. Thank you.

It was lovely seeing the pictures of everyone gathered. Lovely, sad and still smile-prompting.
Here’s to a beautiful Spring and all the best to Matt’s family.
