On behalf of Julie and Michael Sears, here is an update on Matthew’s funeral services. As Mike, wrote in his Facebook page:
“Thank you to all our family and friends for reaching out in the past few days. It is truly gratifying to see the outpouring of love and memories of Matthew Sears. I know Matthew as his Dad. It is amazing to hear all of the other stories, many I did not know about, and I cherish all of them."
Friends, family, and the Brigade of Midshipmen are invited to attend his service at the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 10:00 am. Interment will follow at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made c/o the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation, 274 Wood Road, Annapolis MD 21402, with “Attn: MIDN Matthew Sears” in the memo line.”
If you cannot attend, I know that you will keep them in your thoughts and embrace them in spirit with your prayers.
