  10. To Belinda, Josh and Haylee,
    Thinking of you today. My fondest memories of Matt are his big smile and cheeky grin. Always up for a chat. Always the kind and caring guy quietly sitting at the mess room table. He’d always make sure I was going ok and was always so proud of both of you Josh and Haylee. He was always such a devoted and proud dad and husband. I am so grateful to have worked along side such a smart, kind and gentle human with a big heart. I’m sure he will be watching over you always, until you meet again. Sending love to you all and may you rest In Peace Hunty. Fly high.
