Our prayers and thoughts are with the Crisp family at this deeply sad time. God comfort you in your grief.
My Uncle Matt will be greatly missed by us all. I loved his visits to the farm when my boys and I were home for a visit. He was usually hard at work on Harry or Teresa’s house there or other projects around the farm. He was such a pleasure to be around – always a smile on his face and that giggle when he talked. I just imagine the smile on his face when he reunited with his mother in heaven. Rest peacefully, Uncle Matt. ❤️
Danielle and my whole family who is hurting deeply right now, I’m so very sorry for Danielle, your dad, a grandfather, a brother, my uncle and friend. My heart goes out to each and everyone of you. I will keep you all close in my heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May the the happiest memories bring peace.
Love you All,
Thinking of you sweet girl. Love and prayers from Aunt Da!
Love and prayers to the family. So sorry for your loss.
I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Matt’s passing. He was on the first baseball team that I coached in Fredericksburg back in 1973. He was a very talented player at age 13 and was a wonderful young man. In later years he did some house painting for me and he still had that wonderful smile and personality. My prayers go out to his family. I know he will be missed.
I’m so sorry to hear this, I worked in the Spotsylvania County Building Department years ago and would often help Matt with his paperwork, he built some beautiful homes here. He was a very generous man with a great smile.
Love and prayers to all his family.

Words cannot express the sorrow, emptiness, and shock that we feel about the loss of this great man. He was like a brother to me and was always there for us. He gave us his blood and sweat building our house, which we will always have to remember him by. I wish I could have done something for him in kind. He will always be in my heart.
