I worked with Matt at the Olive Garden. He was my friend. I enjoyed talking with him. He was a great guy and will truly be missed by his friends and coworkers at the OG. My prayers are with his family and children. What a loss they are enduring. I want his family to know that his death has made me rethink my life and live every day to the fullest. Our time here on earth is short and we should spend every minute we have like its our last. I will miss my friend Matt. God Bless him and his family. Sincerely. . . Carrie Bell
