I met Matt at APTN. We worked in different Departments... our paths crossed because the love of Football. He was a huge Odell Willis fan. If we ran into each in the elevator, we would always chat about the game before or upcoming game. Matt, started calling me Mama Bear and I took that as a highest compliment. He then became my "cub". We never lost touch after he left APTN. We continued to be friends. I always thought of him as a "kid" and as I am typing this...he is still a kid in my heart. My sincere condolences going to all his Thordarson family and his children. May you rest in paradise "cub". - Posted by: Arlene Mousseau (Friend) on: Sep 16, 2021

Sending my condolences to all who loved and were loved by Matt. We met through advocacy for indigenous issues. He interviewed me once or twice and used to ask me if I knew others for him to interview. I hadn't talked to him in years. I lost touch with many people in that time. But I will always remember his good nature in the time I knew him. Rest Matt. My prayers are with your family and loved ones ❤️🙏 - Posted by: Regina Atkinson Southwind (Friend/acquaintance) on: Sep 15, 2021
