To the Zoccole Family; I just want to send the deepest condolences to you and all that knew Matthew. Matthew's face was a bright and friendly look that was known in the college community; whether it was in the CICE room or the out and about, everyone knew Matthew. Matthew's laughter filled the air with constant smiles and nobody could leave without him saying goodbye to you and leaving you smiling throughout the day. When Matthew had made his mornings it was always "Catch you soon or hello" but he never had anything negative to say. Matthew will be greatly missed and my best friend and I would like to send our deepest thoughts during this difficult time. I, Jordan Kelso, have to say Matthew was such a ray of sunshine. We will miss him dearly and no matter the day or night we will think about this young boy who was taken too soon.
Again, We hope for the best and always remember to be strong like Matthew wants you to be. Rest easy buddy and forever remembered.

Dear Owen and Fay,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. What a terrible shock to lose one so young. I remember meeting Matthew, when Fay was going through RCIA at St Agnes’s Church. He seemed like a very happy young man and very friendly towards visitors. I pray that you experience the love and support of family and friends during this difficult time. May Matthew be surrounded by angels as he journeys to heaven. May he rest in God’s peace. Sincerely, Jim and Katherine Smith
