Tell us about Matthew's struggle with addiction

His struggle with addiction was so intense I don't really know if he understood it and I know the deeper he got into it he didn't feel good about himself. When he was retired from the Melbourne Police Department as a police officer I don't think he felt like he had a purpose. Even though he was a father, sometimes that's just not enough for a lot of us. We had a career our whole life and all of a sudden it's taken from you.

What made Matthew smile?

His boys, being a police officer, helping the ones in need and removing the criminals off the street.

What do you miss most about Matthew?

His laugh, his jokes, being a dad to our boys
