"You don't know what you got 'til it's gone." I never thought those Counting Crows lyrics would ever apply to me. But they do. We really didn't know what we had until we lost it. You truly were one of Ledyard's finest. My only regrets to having met you were that I primarly talked with you only to quibble over baseball, and that you never got to see how much you meant to us, our school and our town.
This is for you, Matty B. We will never forget you ♥
