Matthew…. My friend, my brother…. I had hoped to never ever have to write on this wall again for another member of my Blue Family beyond Suzanne… but God’s plans are not for us to know…

Too soon you have been taken from us, and we will never be the same. Your legacy as a Guardian of this community will never be forgotten, so long as there is breath in my lungs. I am proud to have been your brother, and I am honored to have shared this work with you. Your dad has been a role model to me my entire career, and I cry for him as much as for you. We love you, and we will miss you until we join you again….

God speed to you my dear friend. Rest now, your watch is done….
