    My prayers go out to the family of Matt. He was a good friend, we met in the workhouse and became very good friends. He got me reading some of the best books I ever read. He took a vow of silence for a year so he didn’t talk at all during that time unless he absolutely had to but me and him still talked / communicated every chance we got. I got to learn who he really was, as a person over the months we spent together and he truly was a special, one of a kind person. I’m blessed to have gotten the chance to know him and look forward to seeing him again when it’s my time to be called home.
