We all lost someone special the day you left this earth. If you only knew how much you truly meant to me Matt. You were a loyal friend till the very end. Or friendship was put to the test many times and we always ended up closer because of them. We laughed, we cried and we helped each other in our times of need. You were the truest friend in every sense of that word. You were at every family function , holidays and birthdays for as long as I can remember. I hated seeing one of the strongest guys I know in so much pain, but yet you never wavered. I am honored to have been able to call you my friend Twang. Rest easy, the pain is gone. I’m going to miss you my friend, my brother.
