Matt,
Our lives will not be the same without you. You always had a smile on your face and it was always the biggest when you were with Lana. We all know how much she truly meant to you. We may have to say goodbye to you now, but we have gained a guardian angel that will forever watch over all of us, because that is what you have always done in life. You fly high “kane man”. I love you forever and always, Auntie Jeana.
