Little Matt

By: Edd Hogan

I was visiting the Randells when Mat was a little kid.  As I was walking with Craig out to the car as we got to the sidewalk and I heard Mat yell my name.  He was rollerblading with kneepads, elbow pads, and helmet and coming towards me very fast.  So I stopped in the middle of the sidewalk, sorta challenging him as he got closer.  All of a sudden he threw himself into a slide on the kneepads, sliding very fast at me.  He came to a stop right at my feet.  He looked up and said he just wanted to say “BYE”.  This kinda sums up Matt as I knew him until the last time I saw him.
