    It is always hard to lose a loved one and the pain is magnified tremendously when it is a sibling. Being only a year and months apart makes it that much harder. There are the memories and secrets that only me and Mat shared. I thank you bro for the good times and the bad. Ther never have been or will there ever be another like you brother. RIP Mat. I will always love you. Your Everloving Brother, Bobby.
