Hi Ken. This is Jeannine, Matt's sister. I hope you get this. I wanted to talk to you at Mimi's party tonight, but I was too emotional. Thanks for introducing yourself but I knew if I talked to you at length then I would've started to cry. I still can't even handle going to Matt's house very well yet. I'm sure it will take a long time. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that we all know what you did for Matt to try and save his life and for that we are grateful and will never forget your efforts. We are also very thankful that you too did not lose your life as well. We know how difficult this must be for you. Just try to find peace in the fact that you did everything you could and the only one who had complete control over the situation was God. He is taking care of Matthew now. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how I felt. Hopefully you will be at little Matt or Danny's birthday party so we can talk. If not, and you'd like to talk about it, then feel free to email me. I am off for the summer because I work in a school, so I will definitely get back to you. Take care and God Bless.
