Matt died 11 days before his birthday.
He died in the 11th hour.
My friend, Kara, also pointed out how your birth year and age you will turn in the present year always adds up to 111. I never knew that before. So in Matt's case, 83 + 28 = 111.
I also did more research of my own about the number 11. I found the following post very interesting although it is written by someone just like you and me:
- "... angels speak to us through prompts to get our attention, 11:11 being the most common."
- "... the name Jesus Christ is 11 letters long."
