Much love to Matt's friends and family at this time. Matt was a dear friend of mine in my teens and 20's, before moving out of state. I've missed him a great deal over the last few decades, but he has remained a true friend in my heart. I loved seeing the photo in the daily Star - that smile was priceless!
