Not quite sure when he was called Bubba by his big sister, but his little bro still calls him that. Matt was a pretty baby and he had a temper. Wet wash rags usually tamed his scream. That doesn't work now.
I have never known a brotherly love as Matt and Garrett share. They are four and a half years a part which kept the older one young and made the younger one old. The two of them loved playing basketball and hunting with their dad. What great role model you have been for Garrett, Matt.
One of the biggest gifts Matt had was a father that truly left his impression and taught him life lessons. While Pat was sick Matt stepped up to the plate and made sure all was taken care of around the house and ranch. I truly do not know what I would have done without him this past year. He quit college to learn about the window company and then took on the role of our salesman. Matt has had many adventures, risks and trials and I have watched how these events have shaped and molded him into the Godly man he is today.
This mom is truly blessed and grateful for you, Matt!
