  1. You have my DEEPEST sympathy! May you have many wonderful memories of Matt, I know I do. I work for the Superior Courthouse and knew Matt for approximately 28 years. Matt did a maticulous job in washing my car. I knew Matt before the Century Tower building was built, when his parking lot was next to the courthouse. He was so good to me when I was running late for work and I had to park my car in a hurry, he always found a spot for me. We always would have a nice conversation and he would always ask how I was doing. He will be DEEPLY MISSED!
