    Dear Becky and Family,
    Matthew meant a lot to all of our family; but, he holds a special place in our hearts, and, in particular in his sister Cecilia’s (Cece’s) heart. From his summer with us in 78′, to all our family gatherings, your wedding and Paw Paw, MI, dancing, book talk…I could go on; instead, let us cherish his life and all our memories! Our love, Ce and Art
