  1. Hi Patience,

    I hadn’t spoke to Matt since 1994. I just found out of his passing today. We sat next to each other in a couple of classes in high school. He was a smart, kind, fascinating individual. He had a maturity about him that most high school kids don’t possess. I’m sorry I didn’t get to know him better. I live in Texas as well. I’m sad our lives didn’t intersect again after 1994.

    After reading about Matt I was inspired to let you know that he touched my life in a positive way even though it’s 20 years later.

    My Sincere Condolences,

    Ken Agnew
