Default Say a prayer for Matto...

We were supposed to meet up for the first time today, when we got off the exit where we were to meet, there was an accident involving a motorcycle. When Matt didn't show, I got worried and have been trying to get ahold of him all day.

I just received a text from his wife that he was in the accidemt and is being admitted. I have no other details besides what I saw, motorcycle vs car.

Everyone say a prayer for him that he comes away alright.

Thanks,
Nick

She said the impact broke his back, asking for prayers from all!

I have No other details at this time.

Please pray for him... Ive never met him but feel as if he was a good friend; Two wheels, one love. So painful to see/hear of any fellow rider going down.

Matt; we only saw the bike from the exit ramp... after waiting at the gas station about 30-40 minutes, we headed back up to check out the accident.

They had already moved the bike, but others told us it was a cruiser... but said there wasn't much left of it. At that point, I hoped you had forgot about us and were still at home. I continued trying to call throughout the day and without getting an answer, I was really starting to worry.

I was floored when I got the text from your wife.

Hang in there... listen to the doctors; don't be stubborn as so many of us men are... Believe it or not; they are the best route to a full and speedy recovery.

Keep us updated and let us know if we can do anything to help.
