Matt was my summer intern for two of his college years. His quiet outward appearance masked a lively wit and intelligence. Matt actually had a vivid sense of humor, was smart -- beyond smart -- and was blessed with a thoughtful, caring psyche. He was the oldest of three children in a warm, close-knit family. Even though Matt came to work for me as "the boss's son," he never took advantage. He quickly became a much honored team member and friend to our workgroup. The thought of his loss to his family, indeed to humanity, brings only a wellspring of anguish.

I met Matt just last spring. He was a good man and a good friend, and I will miss him dearly. God bless him.
