Dear Kuilboer family, I don’t know if you’ll see this, since it is after the visitation date. But I just learned of Matt’s passing and I wanted to send my deepest condolences. I went to STA with him and I remember he was such a wonderful person and always really really kind to me. I’ll always keep his memory alive. My heart breaks for your family and for the world missing him. He will never be forgotten.

A donation has been made to The Sisters of St. Joseph. Message from the donator: There are no words to comfort you at this time of such a huge loss. I sang in the Holy Family choir along with both Anna and John. I remember seeing Matthew when he was just a small boy. Our faith tells us they are in Heaven now but the heart break of losing them is ever present. I will remember all of you in my prayers. Jane Mettham

It’s with great sadness that I am writing this post. I wish that I had been able to make it to the last get together with all of our friends, it is something I will regret missing forever. I enjoyed every time that we hung out or played games together. He was a good friend and a loyal one at that! He will be missed greatly by myself and many others! My condolences to his family at this hard time! ❤️

For parents and family of Mathew May God give you patience to deal with this great loss of a young boy. This is moment of great test for whole family and may you be rewarded to accept the will of the God Mighty to take him back at this young age RIP Mathew

Matt was a good man, and a great friend. It was only most recently where I had started seeing him recently again and not only was I glad to be in his presence, but also proud of the growth he had made in the time I had known him. He was fiercely loyal to his friends, incredibly helpful with his unique skills, and his own life experience has changed how I view people and everyday life, in ways both big and small. While I regret not being able to tell him myself, I am happy we got to spend any portion of our lives together, and he will be remembered with love and pride. May he rest peacefully, having made more a difference to many people than he may have realized.

Matthew was a great friend I made during our shared time in university, and one I will never forget. He was always willing to offer a helping hand, and at the end of the day he was a friend I will never forget. I will miss him. My condolences to his family, such a tragic loss.

I will start, where to start.... Matthew was a man of incredible love, faith, conviction and compassion. I am proud to call him my son and my friend. It is a great gift when a father can say that about his son. Thank you Matthew, thank you. The Lord will be with you and keep you always..
