Matthew - The Name means "Gift from God"

Matthew knows when we named him we chose the name because it means "Gift from God." Seeing this boy grow into such a fine man, father, son and person. Anyone who knows Matt knows he is intense about his beliefs but never closed to listening and learning. He is driven or driving.

He has formed friendships that last and is a good example for anyone he touches.

He is a gentle man, sometimes impatient but in the end give you everything he is and can be never settling for less.

Matt is a clown making you laugh with him long after the joke because his humor is intelligent and takes time to penetrate your brain.

He is a child and an adult enjoying the finer points of fun.

...and taking you to the heights.

He guides his daughters and helps them grow as he also grows.

He has a shirt that says "Grumpy" but never lives up to that name.

Matt not only is that gift from God he created two great gifts in Sierra and Ansley.

We will truly miss you sweet granddaughters and that wonderful man you call dad and we call son. Have a good flight home and say hi to Diana for us Statesiders
