Offering my sorrow and support to all “Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there; I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain” Love to all

Dear Miller family, I am so terribly sorry for all you are going through at this time. Matt was a great friend of mine throughout school. I wish we had kept in contact more after school ended. I always thought about Matt and wondered how he was doing. Our 10 year reunion was coming up soon and I was looking forward to catching up with him. I am deeply saddened I won't get to as soon as I would like. I will always remember the fun we had and his charismatic spirit. Addiction is such a terrible thing. We cannot judge for it. Matt was a good person and I will always remember him as such. A comforting scripture come to mind. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." -Revelation 21:4 Many prayers and love, Dylan Cashdollar

My husband lost his oldest son to addiction. Together we fought with his youngest child for years to overcome his addiction. I know the heartbreak. My faith and prayers are all I have to offer for comfort. You can do EVERYTHING right as a parent, but the kids make their own choices. I am so sorry I cannot be near to comfort my dear friends . I will pray for your family ...very much.

Matt, I have never felt this kind of pain before. You have been like a younger brother to me for almost 20 years. I will always cherish how honest you were with me all the time with your feelings and how you knew you could always be yourself around me. Even if you were going through a rough patch you knew I would understand and not judge. I loved that about you. You reminded me so much of me when I was younger. I was blessed to know you as long as I have and am honored to call you family. Save me a seat at your table in heaven brother. I will see you soon enough. I love you

Dearest Miller family, It’s been a long while since I’ve seen any of you but I remember when Matthew was born. It was just before we moved to MN. What a sweet, sweet baby boy he was. Unfortunately, I never got to meet him all grown up but I’m sure he was just as sweet. He is a Miller so I know he was just as spectacular as the rest of you. Joe, Paul & Mel, and Hannah- my deepest sympathy to you and your families. Cherish each joyous memory you have of Matthew and know that he is safe in the arms of our Father now. My heart breaks for you all as you grieve for your loss. I will keep you all very close to my heart and in my prayers. Sending you all enormous hugs!

Dearest Mary and Art, I am broken hearted for you and for Matthew's sisters and brothers and families. Never has a family been more devoted to the Lord and to each other. I know a little of Matthew's pain, struggles, and triumphs. I can see that he had a great and tender heart and I know he had the unconditional love and support of his his parents and family. How he will be missed by each of you! As I prayed for Matthew, I pray for each of you, knowing that your only true comfort is knowing that Matthew is comforted, healed and whole in the arms of Almighty God.

Matt, I am really not sure what I can say that will accurately express what I\'m feeling today. You were my brother and you went through more pain than any of us in your life. How your road brought you here is the greatest tragedy I can think of, and to watch you walk it over all these years didn\'t make hearing the news yesterday any less heart breaking. I\'ve cheered you on through each victory you won in your long battle, and I\'ve hurt along with you each time the battle got the better of you. Your life had reached a critical peak and you were given a short but significant reward for it: the love of your girlfriend and her son, your new job you were so proud of, and your new outlook. The addiction struck you at a time when you were at your best and that is how I will always choose to remember you. I love you and the place you filled in my heart will never be forgotten. Pray for us now to find the strength to carry on until we all meet again as a family when our time comes.

Matt I wish I was better at expressing my emotions, but I know you knew how much I loved you . I am so grateful to have had you as a brother for the past 27 years. My life will be dimmer without you in it, but your death cannot dim the light that you brought to my life and that of my wife and 3 children. I am so proud to call you my brother. I cannot wait to give you a hug when I see you in heaven and let our bird chests touch again. I love you little brother. You were the best of us.

Matt, I am your oldest sister and I was there when you were born. You struggled with addiction in your life, but that addiction did not define you. You were fiercely protective of all your siblings, including me, your sister who was 18 years older! You had that kind of love for us all. Your hug was strong and I never tired of feeling your arms around me. But besides that love you had for all of us, you also were the greatest prankster. You loved to pull jokes on people and you loved it when we got you back! Your smile could light up the room. Beautiful, beautiful boy, you will be missed. Our family is not complete without you. We'll see you again one day, little brother. Until we meet again, know that you were loved with all of our hearts.
