Jeff and Brenda Ploen Jeff and Brenda Ploen, April 18, 2011 Susanne, Like so many of Matt's other friends, I remember speaking with him at work when you first met. He was so happy, and excited about what could be. He was a great friend and I enjoyed the 8 years we worked together. I will miss him. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Jim & Sara Hoerth, April 14, 2011 Matt was a frequent presence in our home, since he and our older son Stuart were fast friends from primary school on. He always was very polite as well as pleasantly persistent -- two qualities that stood him in good stead in his days as salesman. Mrs. Browne remembers him standing with her in the kitchen and attempting to sell her some Pilgrim Cleaner coupons. (He never succeeded, but always found a polite and cheerful way to re-introduce the topic on succeeding visits!) He also had a delightful sense of humor. All in all, a truly memorable guy whose oresence will be sorely missed. Mary Jo and Donald Browne, April 13, 2011 I was so very sad to hear about Matt. Susanne, you and I met at the 25th class reunion. He was so lucky to find you! Matt and I were "locker buddies" from 5th-12th grade. He was always such a positive, happy go lucky friend. I am sure all of the GV and Hopkins schoolmates will be thinking fondly of him and keeping you in our prayers!

One of the first things I liked about Matt was the way his face lit up while speaking of his precious family. He told sweet, funny stories of his babies and spoke with incredible joy when he told me about and showed me pictures his lovely oldest daughter, Emily Grace. Also, he was kind to pull the husband card to help me book appointments with his wife. I'm going to miss Matt and his great stories.
