ok matt this is a tad bit weird but we miss you so much its crazy, and me and kayla missed a majics game (howeva u spell it) and well we missed it to go to your funniral but u know it was so worth missing i knew if i went i wouldnt have fun because id know we should be with your family supporting them. i kno this is probably bad to say but the only way i told the difference between you and pat was one was soooo cute ( YOU )and i have sooo many memories bought u but the worst just like kayla said was miss burley telling uswat happened to u we cryed and went in the gym thinking that was the last place we saw you and everyone thought we weere nuts cause we were crying while watching the game. and u going to fsu and i dono it makes everything worst just thinking bought it and kayla showed me this song and i started to cry this one is to u matt
If you get there before I do, don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through;
I don't know how long I'll be.
But I'm not gonna let you down, darling wait and see.
And between now and then, till I see you again,
I'll be loving you. Love, me.

MATT we love you and miss you so much

hey buddy. its hard not being able 2 say stuff like that 2 u any more. likek slade said we missed a MAGIC( slade u cant spell) game to b with u one more time. i just cant believe ur gone. that the little baby sitting on the beach but nacked is really gone. its so hard 2 go on. just like slade said knowing u were in college makes it so much harder. maybe because u were so close 2 being what u wanted 2 be. u obviously no there is so much more 2 say and u no ill think of something later and have 2 write it down. so ttyl
love u lots ~~kayla~~

Playing with a heavy heart following the sudden death of 2005 graduate Matthew Riebsame Oct. 21, the Hustlers (2-7),(1-3) pulled out an emotional victory over the winless Rams.

Wearing his older brother's former uniform number, Patrick Riebsame rushed for 91 yards and two touchdowns on just nine carries.

The 6-foot, 200-pound Riebsame, normally an offensive and defensive lineman for the Hustlers, scored from 11 yards out with 4:51 to go in the first half, helping MCC to a 21-0 halftime lead.

The senior would score the Hustler's final touchdown on a one-yard burst with 3:57 to play in the third quarter to give his team a comfortable 34-0 cushion.

Perhaps spent from all the emotion, MCC allowed two fourth-quarter touchdowns but the game was already decided by.

pat and karen are learning how 2 move on but its been hard. we all miss u so much

like nia said ive been crying soo much and it always seens that im on here talking 2 u. i cant believe this could happen 2 her that this could happen 2 u. she is so strong. just think of all the good tomes i had with u i can only imagine how mad good times she had. we could go 2 u for anything. ud help us with anything. ive been trying my best 2 stay strong but its been so hard. karen and pat have been moving on but as u can imangine it has been hard. i no ur in a better place but ur not here with me and karen or all of ur friends. when people like nia or carla who havent even meet u cry it only makes me relize that ur really gone. it makes me relize that u made everyone around u happy. i never thought i could lose someone so close. i just keep remembering what ur dad said at ur funeral. how he said he saw u go off and pray and he was so proud of u. that was only the week b4 the acident. i also keep thinkg of this song: If you get there before I do, don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through;
I don't know how long I'll be.
But I'm not gonna let you down, darling wait and see.
And between now and then, till I see you again,
I'll be loving you. Love, me.
i want 2 say so much but i cant fit in this little box. i just wont let myself believe ur gone. i dont think ill ever let u go but ive getting closer and closet 2 believing myself. we were talking about u and i wouldnt let myself believe that really happened. i never thout ud b the 1 who would do that. i miss u so much. love u lots kay kay and jessica

hey. i saw this music video and thougt of u. it is by rascal flatts what hurts the most. i keep picturing karen as the girl and u the guy. everyone is saying how strong we r but they dont no how much it hurts. u would never tell how much it hurts by looking at me cus i try 2 forget. but i cant. how could i forget someone who always made me smile. someone who loved me and everyone else. how could u forget. i dont think ill ever forget. i lost someone who was like my big bro. ill b having so much fun but then ill remember i did something like that with u and ill start crying. i keep thinking u didnt deserve it. it could have been anyone. i never thought i would cry this much. i didnt even cry this much when my aunt died.
