Matt, I've known you since. you a tiny little boy. You and the boys would sit in the back of the truck with me and your mom, going back in the woods just driving around. You and the boys loving James just like a brother. You came a long way young man. I know your mom and dad did a great job raising you and boys
Sounds like you and Casey loved each other so much. Great parents to the kids. Say hi and we love and miss everyone in HEAVEN... I know the first person you're going to first is Jimmy. Matt, Rest in Paradise.
