Hey. I am Matt's wife Randi. Just wanted to send out a thank you to everyone for the outpouring of support and comfort. Matt left me three beautiful little girls that remind me of him daily. Our older two look just like him. He is missed everyday but he is remembered everyday. Our five year old tells him about school everyday and we talk about things that we all did together and things that we want to do that we know daddy would have like to do too. I am lucky to have known him and to have spent six years married to him. He was the type of man that could make you laugh no matter what was going on around you. People tell me that I am only 25 and will fall in love again, but I will never find a man who will be the love of my life. I had that and I hold on tight to that. Again, thank you all for your support and sympathy.
