A week ago, webmaster and co-creater of Rateswire.com Matthew Porter passed away. Ever since I met Matthew in high school fifteen plus years ago he has been the bravest and most loyal friend I have ever known. He gave selflessly, and was content with whatever he received back in return.
Not only did Matthew build this site, he built websites for friends, family, and even a churh, and gave many of his services away for free or in exchange for gifts for his friends and family. When I finally went to shut his computer down, it had internet browser windows open showing website wordpress themes he was researching to improve some of the websites he maintained, even as his health faded.
However, we take solace in the fact that his was a life worth living, filled with love, and we did live it!
Future posts from me may have minor spelling and grammatical errors. As Mathew reminded me, he was the one that received an A+ in our high school senior year English class while I merely received an A!
