I’m so sorry for your loss! Matt was a good friend to both me and my husband, and is dearly missed! We all worked together at Cooper. He always called me “Foo” and I always called him “Matty Pooh”. We all hung out and watched football in Brownville. My favorite memory of him is the night he wore a Vikings jersey because he lost a bet. You couldn’t help but laugh listening to him charismatically going on and on at how ‘traumatizing’ it was.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
