MATTHEW WILLIAM SOLANO DECEMBER 12, 1942 - DECEMBER 27, 2012 My very dear and special friend, Matthew, is with God now. Matthew loved God so much. He either was studying one of his many bibles, or talking about Jesus and God. I am so blessed for the gift of Matthew's and my relationship. It truly was given from God, out of the blue. From the beginning I knew Matthew was special and I soon loved him as family. I would never have dreamed the journey we were going to take together, the next 6-7 years. (along with 100's of books) Matthew's loves were God, Jesus, the Marines and books. Within minutes he could be sharing about all four. What a smile, listening to him, put on my face and heart. Six months ago Matthew's doctor and I asked Matthew if he wanted to try out a social club at the V.A. Hospital. He's gone 2 times a week ever since. Playing chess, going on outings, and meeting new friends. What a gift to witness Matthew's blossoming. His giggling would make me laugh. He is so much a part of my being. Selfishly, I will miss Matthew so, so much - spending so much time together. I believe, tho' he is peaceful and content being with God and his loved ones. Thank you Matthew. Thank you God. Katherine
