I loved visiting with Matt. Wife & I adored the pic showing Matt and Tim Tebow playing varsity basketball. I also remember Matt explaining to me the differences between the far left and far right in politics. I honestly didn't know!
Matt will truly be missed and while He has moved on to a much better place, it's so tough to stay here without Matt. God Bless the wonderful Gabriel family, Matt's friends, "the Gang" and all who had the pleasure of knowing Matt.
