Kandace, Steve, Lois, Sarah and families, We are so saddened to hear of the loss of Matt. This difficult news reminds us how narrow the path from living on Earth to being with our Father in Heaven. I knew Matt enough to see his life reflect Christ's Love in both his actions and words. Ruth and I share your sorrow and pray for the Peace that brings comfort and strength. Love, Bob and Ruth Hoel
