Matt was an inspiration. I had 1 1/2 years on at that point and was impressed that you could be a Police Officer and a Medic at the same time. After his death, I made it my goal to achieve that extra training and follow in his footsteps. Thanks Matt! You were taken from us way too soon! Great Cop, Great Medic!! God Bless you!!
