    Rest in Peace dear child.

    We are so sorry to hear about your loss. We’d visit Mathew in the hospital when we found out he was your son while visiting both our parents on the same floor, and if he was out and about he’d come and see us. He was a real good guy we enjoyed talking to him .
    RIP Matt

  28. Mes sympathies a toute la famille et ses caregiver! Ce fut un plaisir de te connaitre prendre soins de toi! Repose en paix 🙏

  29. I am very sorry for your family’s loss. I met Matt at the Dumont hospital as he was across the hall from my mom Doris Bannister (floor 3 A from April 2012 until March 2019) and they were both members of St. Georges Anglican Church so I read his name in the bulletins that were sent out to mom. I liked popping in to say hi to him and I know he very much enjoyed the visits from the St. John Ambulance visitor dogs and they liked him too (jumping up on his bed and cuddling in with him). Again, I am so sorry for you loss.
