CandleAunt Ev and family I am sorry for your loss of a great man. Hugs to all.

Evelyn & family,
My heart goes out to all of you at this sorrowful time. Matt was an exceptional Godfather! His faith in God, Family and Friends are my most valued lessons from him. He always had the biggest smile and it was so contagious! My children loved seeing him at church because he would always call me a "brat" and wink at me and laugh with them! His sense of humor was awesome! You are all in my thoughts and prayers, Jill(brat), Scott, Portor & Monique Richardson
