As the devastating news of Matthew Besner’s passing takes over the media waves throughout the country, one can’t help but reflect on the overwhelming amount of heavy hearts that fill this city and community.
My brief personal connection to Matthew stems from Herzliah High School, besides other connections to his siblings. He was a few years older than me and one of the most enjoyable basketball coaches that I ever had.
The community really pulled together. There has been a true outpour of support for the situation that will definitely need to carry over into support for the family.
My heart lies heavy as my deepest condolences goes out to his entire family and wealth of friends. We’re all better for having known him.
