Memories and Condolences

Matt will always hold a special place in the hearts of the Nelson family. I grew up with Matt and he was like a younger brother to me. He played street hockey with my husband. When we had kids, they loved him like an Uncle, always being silly and teaching them how to wrestle and play sports. Our hearts are so heavy to learn of his sudden passing, but also comforted knowing he's resting in Peace with his Mom, Dad and Wife. Our deepest sympathies to Rene, Joe, Steve and Chris on this great loss of a brother, and to all his nieces and nephew whom he adored. May you find comfort in your memories at this very difficult time. Much love to all of you.
