|Thanks a bunches Jeff.....it
is fascinating to read about Matt..... I knew
Matt from about 1987 when I met him at San
Francisco State University via
...it is real fascinating to see how much
he was alike himself as a young
gentle man as to when he grew up as a man.
I spent countless hours on the
phone with Matt as well...discussing different
points of views and having
some very deep, personal and enriching conversations.
Matt also very often
helped composing letters and not the least
help me with my resume and cover
letters as I was HUNTING for Internships and
jobs after graduating from SFSU.
Matt and I also went on several walks to Fort
Funston together walking
Charlie...Matt loved it out there and I met
several of Matt's
"dog-walker-friends" while there.
Matt and I had a Very Strong interest
in animals, and for me, especially dogs....I
love dogs and Matt and I
definitely shared that part together too.
I just listened to Matt and the recording....quite
amusing... I recognized the way
he used to say....Oh...shut Upppp! ;-)....
I guess it stuck with him in to the later
Anyway...I am really enjoying reading about
Matt and I was cracking up
about all the Funny little stories ...especially
the once mentioning Matt
and him ALWAYS being late....late, late....late.
But he did it in style ;-)
I think about him very often and miss him
very much too.
Take care Jeff and I actually did not know
that Matt and you were That
close....that is great....not many people
have that relationship ...even
during an entire, full life. I am sure
he is watching out for you in a
I will be checking in every now and then,
please keep me up to date if
there are big changes going on with the site.....Matt's
It makes it really cool to go there and Visit
with Matt when I feel like it. ;-)

|Jeff: I am having one
of those few evenings with everyone else in
out for awhile, and had the chance to at least
surf through the site. I
thought I'd feel sad, but don't. The
memories are just too warm. I hope to
add my input some time soon, but for now,
am just savoring the memories.
What a terrific memorial. I am proud

I just finished checking
out the web site you created for Matt.
I am blown away. I'm not sure what to say.
First of all I can't get my mind off of Matt
and family and all the memories. I can't stop
the tears from falling but that is not nessessarily
a bad thing. I can cry just as easily
from joy as from sadness. Thank you so much
for all your hard work, research, and heart.
There are endless amounts of memories from
my childhood that relate to Matt. I
love sharing all are silly childhood stuff
with Mason. All the cousin stuff.
All the closeness. He loves to hear the stories
and I think he apprecites how he is forming
memories right now with his cousins which
we hold so dear,(especially as an only child).
I remember like it was yesterday the codes
and the shed and the tape recordings and the
junk food frenzies and the animal activisms
and the dough-boy pool with the always worn
white tee-shirts, the church picnics.
We have all been so blessed with so much love
and prosperity in our lives. Surely
the loss of Matt is one of the biggest losses
any of us has had to experience. Yet
being blessed enough to have had so many years
with him has given us a valuable and precious
piece of life to hold on to. As I relive these
memories via your web site I am privileged
to have been a part of Matt's life throughout
the years. I can't believe what a memory
you have and what care you have put into Matt's
memorial. Thank you for the fond memories
and the reminder that life is short but sweet.
Love and Peace,
Please contact Jeff Myers to list any
