Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Dearest Pat, Charlie, Lauren and Robyn,  You all have been on my heart since hearing this numbing news; I can't help but cry every time I think of you. Although I did not have the pleasure of knowing Matthew as the fine young adult he became, I fondly remember the times when Pat would bring him to her office when he was about six years old.  Matthew would dash over to her office chair and spin around and around; he sure got much delight out of that.  Matt has done you proud. May each of you gain peace and comfort along this unbearably painful journey every time you think of the priceless memories you have of him.   God Bless.  Virginia L. Coffiel, Pat's former co-worker at JCMC
