Our son Matthew was chosen as a recipient of the 1986 Mayor's Volunteer Youth Awards Program, but was unable to attend the award ceremony because he was terminally ill. When informed that Matthew could not travel to City Hall, Mayor Koch visited him at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
The Mayor and Matthew had a very friendly, upbeat and humorous conversation. Before he left the Mayor asked Matthew if he liked cheese cake and promised to send him one made by his personal chef. It arrived in Matthew's hospital room the next day and was shared by the pediatric patients and staff.
We will always remember Mayor Edward Koch's kindness to Matthew and his service to New York City. We extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
