The one and only, he was a regular of this site.

im not sure what to say about him or his death yet...

i figure ill really lay some words down when i can think of it.

He died may 21st 2011 at the age of 16.

His canoe flipped and he got sucked into an under current. A very brave stranger dove in to try to save him, but was also sucked into the current and drown. Ive yet to find out who that person was, and how i can get in touch with his family.

im sure alot of you had the chance to chat will him. he was an incredible young man.


im going to strive to live like he did, thoughtfully, but with great vigor.

Total amount

Goal

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
