Matthew Badger The View

Matthew appeared on ‘The View’ on May 23 to talk about his three daughters who tragically died on Christmas Day when a fire broke out in their mother’s home — read on to find out what he said in this emotional interview.

Just looking at Matthew Badger is heartbreaking because you know he’s been through the most unimaginable tragedy. The father sat down with Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg and fought back tears as he talked about Lily, 9 and seven-year-old twins Sara and Grace. 

“I’m constantly reminded of them, a flicker anything that reminds me of the girls,” he says. “It’s constant grief.”

But Matthew has said that he’s not scared because he’s already lost everything. He went on to say that he’s “never been more motivated” to work on the Lily Sarah Grace fund which he started to promote art in public schools.

The investigation into the fatal fire of Badger’s Stamford, Conn. home discovered two major safety errors that cost the lives of three children and parents on Christmas Day. Fire marshals said a still-lit bag of embers from a yule log placed against the wall of the house was the cause of the fire. Plus, the house had no functioning smoke detectors.
