    Dear Matt Thys Family,

    I am sorry to hear about the passing of your husband, father and friend. Your dad made an impact on my life. He was great! He was so passionate about refurnishing piano’s that he inspired me to do mine when I was a teenager. He was very helpful and encouraging. He always had a ready smile. I pray that you would know the comfort of the Holy Spirit during this time. Look to Jesus-He was a man of sorrows and understands grief, loss and pain. God bless you and yours with everything you need for your lives…May he continue to live in your hearts and minds with fond memories.
