Many of us know Matt, (elusivewords) for a long time. He has made me feel humble by the way he took care of his father these past few years. He was a son who was cherished by his parents. He had lost his best friend when his mother passed away a few years back. He took it upon himself to care for his father, while his siblings shared his cares. How many hours he spent with him on Sundays, having lunch with him in a Chinese restaurant; how many hours he spent waiting in the doctor’s waiting rooms with his father, I have lost count.

a couple of days back, after several years of illness, loss of memory in the recent past, and age related problems, Matt lost his father. I pray that all the memories that he has in his heart, will help him overcome this immense vacuum that he feels in his heart today.

I hope all of you, who know him would stop by his site, and give him a hug. What an honor to have a son like Matt. What an illustrious life his parents had to have lived to produce a son like Matt.

Love and hugs to you Matt.
