My son, Matt, was an incredibly amazing human being. His charismatic charm, bright beaming smile, and genuine goodness drew everyone he met to him. He was contagiously happy, with a huge capacity for optimism and compassion. You can read more about him and how in his short 32 years he impacted more lives than most people do in a lifetime.
