MySpace Tribute

For Matt:

You are one of the most amazing men I have ever known. I want to thank you for your bright spirit, adorable smile, contagious laugh, and kind heart. The world is a better place because of you, and I know you will be remembered as a hero by all. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life; I know our time was brief, but you have left an amazing print on my heart. Although you left us too soon, you can now begin a new chapter with the Lord. You will always be my "little short source of entertainment" and I, your "moopsie." I can still hear you singing that song to me... it will never fade.

Love you forever Conte,
Danica (Moopsie)

From Jessica 03/15/07:

Matt you were a very caring and thoughtful person, you were always concerned about the ones that you loved, I was fortunate enough to be one of those people. While you were gone you were always concerned with how I was doing and always calling to check up on me. You are the only one that I would not get mad at for calling me at 0200, and I always knew it was you because as soon as I answered the phone the first thing I would hear would be you singing " good morning beautiful".
I am so grateful for the time, phone calls, and memories that we had shared over the past 3 years. You have left an everlasting impression on me and I can only hope that I will be able to live and love like you. I love you. Your girl, Jessica

Better Together - Jack Johnson

There's no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song I could sing
But I can try for your heart
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a, shoebox of photographs
With sepiatone loving
Love is the answer,
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? and where do we go?
And how come we're so hard?
It's not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing its always better when we're together

[Chorus:]
MMM its always better when we're together
Look at the stars when we're together
Its always better when we're together
Yeah, its always better when we're together

And all of these moments
Just might find there way into my dreams tonight
But I know that theyll be gone
When the morning light sings
And brings new things
But tomorrow night you see
That theyll be gone too
Too many things I have to do
But if all of these dreams might find there way
Into my day to day scene
Ill be under the impression
I was somewhere in between
With only two
Just me and you
Not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be
We'll Sit beneath the mango tree

Its always better when we're together
Somewhere in between together
Its always better when we're together
Yeah, its always better when we're together

MMmmmm MMMmmmm Mmmmmm
I believe in memories
They look so, so pretty when I sleep
Hey now, and when I wake up,
You look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is no time,
And there is no song I could sing
And there is no, combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing
We're Better together.
