Lauren I know there are no words to express when you loose a loved one. Matt was a amazing and caring person. He always made me and my boys feel like family. The boys still talk about the boat trip on the west coast. Lol You and your family are in my prayers. Hugs

My thoughts are with you my friend.

The autumn wind, and the winter winds they have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days, they go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind
The summer wind
Warm summer wind
The summer wind
