I remember all the good times we had
growing up in Irvington. Introducing you to your wife Ellen, joy riding in the good old cars that they don't make like that anymore. Remember taking your Mom over my shoulders and taking here outside to see my new car.
Going fishing and enjoying time with one another. Even when you got sick still made it a point to get together at least once a week and go out for dinner. We will still go out to dinner with Ellen on our Thursday nights for your favorite Parmesan Crusted Cod Fish dinner at the Stafford Diner. Gonna miss you dear friend but will not forget you. Rest in Peace. Matt and Eileen
