I was priveleged to know Matt Cortez, even went to school with him several years. He was a very unique person, always agreeable and friendly. No one could quite make me laugh the way Matt could. He had many friends in many social circles, and was awesome at hackeysack. Matt was someone you could tell anything to, and he'd keep it a secret. He was the one guy you'd pick if you were stranded on a desert island, because you knew he'd always have your back. Regardless of the details of his passing, it was not his time to go. He was an encourager, someone who would uplift and try to show you the bright side of every situation. I'll miss Matthew Cortez and would ask all of you to continually cover his friends and his family with your prayers. It is a dangerous world we live in, and those we love are not guaranteed tomorrow, as we are not either. I would also encourage you to take the time to let those close to you know how much they mean to you, because you never know what will happen in the future. If any members of Matthew Cortez's family are reading this, and if other friends are too, please accept my condolences on your loss, our loss, of a dear friend. Know that my prayers are with you.
