It has been a year since you left me and I still miss you ev­ery day. You are the love of my life. You are the best. Your lov­ing part­ner, Terry Me­mo­rial for (1980 - 2014) It’s been a year since Matt’s pass­ing, it seems like yes­ter­day. His fam­ily and friends miss him ev­ery day. We will never be the same. Matt was in a class all by him­self! He was a gift from God, who blessed him with tal­ents and a free spirit. This ode writ­ten by one of his friends cap­tures Matthew’s life. How You Livin?

(An ode to Matt Boal) Keepin things easy and look­ing to the light In­tro­duc­ing ink to walls, doin it right

Hab­lando con la gente ev­ery chance I get Re­spect for those I love and ev­ery­one I’ve met Mak­ing peo­ple laugh and keepin it real

From Sacto to SF to Brook­lyn to San Miguel,

I speak what I feel

Good art and good peo­ple is what I know

Af­ter hours of hangin,

I can sink bean bags 4 in a row Greet­ing you with shakes, slaps, hugs, sim­i­les and a

"How you Livin?"

Al­ways re­mind­ing you that you’re spe­cial, I’m never trip­pin Grow­ing Sand­box across bor­ders, I rec­og­nize tal­ent and ap­pre­ci­ate peo­ple. Can bust out Rus­sian ac­cents while al­ways keepin it sim­ple I’m po­lite, kind, and play good tunes ev­ery day No pinches mames guey!

If I was food I’d be hum­ble pie Keep­ing things light un­til the day I die Friends and fam­ily, let my life be a re­minder Say what’s in your heart and live a lit­tle wilder Ap­pre­ci­ate the time we have with each other

My time on earth is over, but I will al­ways be your lov­ing brother. Chillin is my game

Matt Boal is my name. Yeah Buddy!
