What happened yesterday was an absolute tragedy! Matt was a great man and a good friend and more important he respected and loved his wife and children. I was with Matt just a short time before this happened and as per the usuall we spoke of the job we were looking at, then we spoke about racing and camping and as alway's being the kind of man Matt was he found a way to include loving remarks about Kelly and the girls. To me it seemed normal for a conversation with Matt but I must say I could only hope to be the kind of man he was, nothing was more important to Matt then Kelly and his daughters and he always made it a point to let you know that. Matt I am a better person for having known you I only wish I had told you that in person. I will miss you my friend.
