Matisse, a 15-year-old Belgian teenager, died suddenly in his sleep last week. His family is devastated.
A real tragedy occurred last week in a boarding school in Ostend. Matisse was studying maritime sciences at the Pension aan Zee. His dream was to become a ship captain. Sadly, on Monday night, after going to bed after eating lasagna, the 15-year-old never woke up. At around 11 p.m., he had a coughing fit. If according to him everything was fine, the worst has happened …
Her daddy Herwig, her mom An and her sister Aline, 20, mourn their loved one. Herwig spoke about his son’s death to HLN: “He had no chance (…) A virus or bacteria that caused aggressive pneumonia must have killed him within two hours. Matisse was a pleasant, polite, and distinguished boy who wouldn’t hurt a fly. He wanted to become the captain of a ship or a cruise ship. His path was already marked out ”.
Matisse’s funeral will take place this Saturday, June 12. The ceremony can be followed on the Izegem funeral home website.
