    Thank you Uncle Matty for all that you’ve ever done for me. You became the Dad I never had. You were always there for me. You bought me my first train set and now it looks like my last. The best times of my life we’re when you took me to New Hampshire and taught me how to shoot and fish. The greatest memories of my life. Rest in total peace Unc.
