“We sponsor a park bench for the neighborhood park where Matt and Luke played as children. The bench backs up to a ravine where they rode their dirt bikes with pals; it faces a grassy spot where we once held birthday parties, and the tennis court where he and Elizabeth played. The plaque on the bench’s backrest displays Matt’s name, dates, and a quote from William Wordsworth.”

My heart leaps up
when I behold
A rainbow in the sky
