To the Hammelink family,

I’m devastated to just learn of this sad news. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I got to know Matt from HS and we enjoyed our personal conditioning classes we had together. We helped encourage each other and I’ll always remember how kind he was to those he interacted with. His good natured spirit is what I’ll always remember of him. May God bless you all in this sad time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. It’s been many years since high school but that doesn’t make it any easier to know that another young life was taken way too soon. The loss of someone dear to us is never easy. I hope all the cherished memories that you have of Matt brings you some light during this dark time. My deepest condolences.
