Matt, I just read that you’ve passed and I’m saddened. You were the nicest boss ever at AT&T ever. As a Clerk you never would do anything to hurt anyone.
My fondest memory was when you suspended a person with pay. We never let you live it down.
You’re now in a marvelous home with our creator. No pains or worries. Please look my Son up you can have a great music jam.
Love and will miss you, Kathy B
