for over 20 years our family has with pride been able to call Matthew Bowes a friend.
for the rest of time, we shall remember our friend with love, affection and with the smiles that only a thousand million good memories can bring.
with your knowledge and incredible gift for conversation, with your love of rave and the quoted Led Zeppelin and with your zest for life it's very hard indeed to say Rest In Peace, Matt. we just all hope that you are at peace.
if any of us can lead a life half as good or just a fraction as inspiring as yours, we may one day be fortunate enough to see you again on the other side.
there cannot and will not be a goodbye for someone who shall forever remain in our hearts and in our minds.
