there was a guy, Matt, that lived near my mom and although quite odd, he was a nice guy and was the caretaker for the building next door and the one next to that. most ppl thought he was creepy or mean but he was shy and had just been really really hurt in his life time. when i worked at the gas station by our houses...he would come every couple of days to buy fuel for all the other ones in the building so no one would be cold (we are talking upstate NY near the green mountains of VT) and did his best to take care of the buildings even though the owner didn't really care. i would talk to him some and even got a smile or two from him. well...he died this week and no one noticed till they got cold. they didn't even go check on him themselves....they just called the owner and yelled to get Matt in trouble. so the owner went into his place to yell at him and found him dead. he'd had a seizure we think. he had no family left and i think the whole thing is really really sad. so i am hoping you will all join me in a kind thought for the sad shy guy Matt since i am not sure anyone else will think of him or miss him. thanks!
