Matt

Post by minniev »

Several of you have noticed that Matt Quinn has not been participating for a while, and were justly concerned since he's had such serious health issues. I heard from him today and the news is good. He is in a period of recovery, and hopes to rejoin our group in the spring. He is in good spirits, and asked me to let ya'll know he's OK.

A much needed update. Thank you.

I had talked with him earlier about meeting up but in the end he just wanted rest and some alone time. I can sympathize. He knows we're here when he's ready.

Keep him in your thoughts and prayers. His situation is precarious. He gets good news one day and bad news the next. It is a very hard way to live, but he hopes to prevail. He wants all of you to know how much this community has meant to him.

For any that don't yet know, Matt Quinn has passed away. Keep his family in your thoughts.

Wow, that was not the news I expected.

He was a truly great guy and will be sorely missed around here. I had been looking forward to getting together with him once he felt better.

A sad loss for us all. Thoughts and prayers definitely from my little corner of the world.
