We loved Matt very much and the loss to us and all who knew him is felt very deeply. He was such a good person, very caring and thoughtful of other people. Perhaps that is why this terrible and senseless thing happened to him. He trusted people and I’m sure he never thought they would be so cruel and heartless.

A day does not go by without thinking of him. He had a good future all planned out.  We are so thankful we seen him at Christmas. As usual he had a big smile and a hug when he came in the house. Pop had a chance to visit with him and so glad he did. Pop said how he had grown up and how proud of him he was.

The last thing I said to him was, I love you very much Matt and he gave me a big hug and said I love you too Gram and he left. That was the last time we seen him. Lots of tears have been shed through the past months and I am sure there will be a lot more as time passes.

We Miss you Matt.

Love, Pop and Gram
