Matt’s funeral service was attended by over 500 people. It was an extremely sad day, but there was also a real sense of joy and hope in the air. Many people wore bright colours, with a touch of orange (Matt’s favourite colour), and the church was decorated with balloons and bunting.
In these photos we are all smiling, but on the inside we were falling apart.
It was a day of tears and mourning, praise and thanks. Matthew was saved from death many years ago and we all look forward eagerly to the day where will we stand beside him in worship of our Lord and King once again.
