Jul 26.11 from Shane, Tara, Anthony & Austin Harding:
Matt was a shinning star in many lives. He brought alot of laughter, compassion and friendship to my boys that will never be forgotten. Watching him grow up with Anthony was alot of fun. They both knew how to push our buttons at times, but always had a good time doing it. They shared alot of laughs...usually at someone elses expense. Matt you will never be forgotten in The Harding household. You have and always will hold a special place. Watch over and guide all your friends through their journey. Keep being that shinning star you always have been. Rest in peace Matt.
