Matt was such a wonderful person. Anyone who knew him, loved him. He could definitely brighten a room with his personality and smile. He will be missed.

The first poster in the paper's column seemed to resent the fact that the paper mentioned he was gay ("What did that have to do with it?"). It was probably the cause of it! However, Vanderpool seemed pretty comfortable with it and took no steps to concceal the fact that he was Gay. It's hard to understand.
