Matt, I’ll always remember greeting you at church with my grandpa, Al Ficca, especially when you’d tease me and blame it on your evil twin. =) We’ll miss you! To Betty and the Family, I’m so sorry for you loss. He was such a sweet man and will be sadly missed in our congregation.
A good friend ,dedicated co-worker, and my best instructor those many years ago. Well done Matt.
Meredith and David, My Condolences and Thoughts Are With You at This Time.
David and Matthew: The Barkers and the Javersaks go back a long way. We will never forget Matt. He and my father, Bill, were good friends and neighbors. Matt and Hilda are both part of loving memories of Hanlin Way. God Bless! Maureen Barker Longanacre
