My Dear Uncle Matt, You were a Father figure to me, and a patient and loving brother to your sister Ethel. I will miss our weekly get-together with coffee and wonderful conversations. You were kind, loving, inspirational, and I will miss your laughter and wisdom. Your door was always open to everyone who was in need of your assistance. Your journey continues and you leave us with such wonderful memories that we shall not soon forget.
When you meet Wayne, Jim and John, give them a HUG from Rosie

My Sincere Condolences to Cousin Chris & Family! I have fond memories of the visits of Great-Uncle Matt from when he lived in the USA and would travel up to Sault Ste. Marie. I am glad in the most recent years Matt connected and was so proud of his son Chris, a most cherished relationship formed. Matt was a great friend, father figure and uncle to Wayne & Rosie. He always helped and supported Granny Ethel. May Matt rest in eternal peace and I hope he gives my mom his niece Jeannine a big hug for me when he arrives to the ever after.
