Aunt Mary, I was so sorry to hear about Matt's passing. I know that he was unwell for awhile. I wanted you to know that I have only happy healthy memories of uncle matt. I remember the happiest times of my childhood were the summer visits to albany from germany. For weeks in advance i would dream about playing in your great pool with all the cousins and you two. I loved that it was above-ground - kept you guys in there longer and made it extra special. Thanks for that memory. Love you and take care of yourself. Becky
