On April 6th, tSB lost a dear friend and mentor, Matthew Therrien. Matt was involved in a car accident on Sunday morning (4.6) in Hilo, HI and did not survive the incident.
We celebrated his life on Sunday, April 13th at Alki Beach Park.
Thank you so much to those of you who were able to join us. Matt has been a phenomenal mentor and will always be a part of our family. He helped us to re-imagine masculinity and modeled how to be a respectful, vulnerable and loving man. He believed in each of us so much that we had no choice but to believe in ourselves. He laughed and sang and made us embrace our inner-nerd. Matt was a talented poet and worked hard to finish his degree, which is being awarded posthumously by the University of Hawaii, Hilo. Matt will continue to be a leader in our community and lives on in every life that he has transformed.
