Matty, a transplant recipient, told his story to everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him, including James’ wonderful mother, Sonya. Among those who listened to Matty’s tale was James’ mother. Everyone who ever had the privilege of listening to him was moved to greatness as a result of his words. The year 2016 was the year that Matty left this world. Matty received a kidney from a donor who was an unknown to him in the hopes that it would aid in his recovery. The first time Sonya and Matty actually crossed paths was when they were both giving talks to students in schools along the coast about their experiences as organ donors.

It was during one of these talks that the two finally had the opportunity to talk to one another. At the time in question, Matty and Sonya were both telling the students the respective stories that they had been working on. Since James’s passing, Matty has been an incredible source of comfort and support for our family, and we will be eternally grateful to him for it. Since James’s passing, Matty has been an incredible source of comfort and support for our family.  Since James’s passing, Matty has provided our family with an incredible source of comfort and has been a wonderful source of support for us all. Heaven can now accommodate the existence of one more angelic being than it could previously. Rest in peace Quiet, Matty
