You were so great with the children! As an outsider looking in I always knew the kids were looking up to you. You will be sadly missed. Your daughters are so beautiful and have lost so much. You always had your head on straight, Nate & Collin adored you. Uncle Matt did no wrong in their eyes. You have blessed so many & god needs you now so young for something else. You will not be forgotten young man!
