I was having a quiet moment Matthew and thought of you. I was wondering what you would have been like at 21years old, one thing I do know is that you would have been a son to be proud of as I’m so proud of your sister Anneka.
I miss you mate

I was just passing through and came across your poetry which I thought was really fantastic.

To Matthew’s parents.
How sad to lose such a beautiful boy. I hope as time passes, the pain will ease somehow. I lost a brother to cancer, and as much as I miss him, I know he is now out of his pain. To me, in Heaven, we will be reunited with those we loved and lost. I hope it is so for you. Donna

Matthew, We think of you every day and know that you are free from pain and for that we’re grateful, but we miss you so much and wish you could still be here to share with us your laughter, your smiles and your love for life. Your courage inspired all who knew you and will continue to inspire others who have never had the chance to meet you. We love and miss you… Mum, Dad Anneka

We miss you every day and your smile lives on in our hearts and in our minds.
With much love
Mum, Dad & Anneka

We miss you so much every day and think of you all the time. Your memory lives on, you will never be forgotten.
Mum, Dad & Anneka

Just felt like writing a few words, just to really say I’m thinking of you tonight as the year 2000 is nearly ended. It’s been a lonely Christmas without you for all of us, I missed seeing you opening presents and wearing the latest goalie top that took your fancy. Anneka is growing up to be a real beauty and with a real attitude, your mum and I could do with you keeping her admirers at arms length. Hope your Grandad is keeping you sharp in goal ready for your dad to take some shots at you whenever that may be. You’ll always be in my thoughts mate, I miss you so much son.. (Dad)

Liebe Leute !
Es macht mich betroffen und traurig , das ein so junges Leben von Gott abberufen wird… Doch ich weiss, Gott wird sich um Matthew kümmern und er wird dafür sorgen, das er glücklich und frei ist!
In Gedenken an einen kleinen, lebenslustigen Jungen…

Happy freedom day, beautiful Matthew.
Looks like my precious Taylor is coming your way sometime in the next few months. Would sure love for you to greet him with your wonderful smile, high fives and a footrace between the stars. You are missed, you are loved. And your parents, your sister, are a wonder, a miracle, a gift to all of us still in pain… With love and lifelong admiration…

I hope you have met with my darling Brianna. She joined you in Heaven Dec.30, 1999. The two of you should make quite a pair. Rest easy and peacefully. Your family was very lucky to have been chosen to host you while you were on this earth. Send strength and guidance to your loved ones.

What can I say that hasn’t been said before. Your Mother and I, and of course Anneka, are thinking of you today as it has been a whole year since we said goodbye to you. We will be remembering today your fit and healthy days when you didn’t have a care in the world and also the last 23 months of your life when you battled bravely against the cancer. We miss you so much.

Your Mum and I visited your memorial in Hendon this afternoon. It had been a while since I last went there although your mum has been regularly. I missed you more than ever today, hope your goalkeeping is still coming along wherever you are, I miss having you around especially our kickabouts in the garden and wish I appreciated those moments much more.

Though I knew you for just a short time, you touched me and inspired me. There are so many things I feel, but I cant get the words out. It was truly an honour knowing you Matthew. From my Mum and myself, rest in peace. chris jensen

Mathew, your courage and strength should be a comfort to each of us — you didn’t go without a struggle and although you weren’t victorious in this battle; know that the fight continues.
