    Dear Rawson Family,
    I was fortunate enough to meet Matt almost 10 years ago. He was a friend of my friends, and over the years and visits to Ottawa we became friends too. He was lovely and silly, and always kind at heart. He will always be remembered fondly.
    My sincerest sympathies,
    Laura
