Matthew D.

We were…

in San Diego at our cousin’s home of Carlos and Karen. I wasn’t feeling well and we almost came home early. But Karen and Carlos were very gracious and set me up with comfy pillows, ginger tea and home made soup!

But, then we received a flurry of calls from Northern California letting us know that our good friend Matthew D. had passed away in an accident in his home. We were horror struck and immediately packed and came home to be with our friends in the fellowship.

Matthew was 28, just getting ready to graduate from college, putting the finishing touches on his home remodel, had been working full time and partnered to a wonderful man Bobby T.

He stole the show in our video production at our conference ( He was one of those folks that ALWAYS said ‘yes’ to every call for assistance. He made everything fun fun fun and we’ll miss him so.

Today, December 6 he would have celebrated 5 years of sobriety. We love you Matthew.
