    We love you Matt. For short time I got to know you, turns out we’re alike in so many ways. I’m sorry I never got to go hunting or fishing with you. I really was looking forward to it. But i know you’re up in heaven hunting and fishing with the big guy upstairs. I promise we will be here for Joanne no matter what she needs. We’re all gonna miss you dear friend. Till we meet again.
