Farewell to Matthew

When you're sad about a situation, often the best course of action is...to throw a party!

Which is exactly what we did to wish Matthew farewell as he begins a new and very exciting job in Charleston.
 
Archer, Betsy, Alex
 

Saturday night was everything a farewell party should be: good friends, delicious food, some tears...but lots of laughter (and maybe even a little singing and dancing...ahem)

Kent, Alex, Ryan


Henry and Archer


The newly engaged couple: Patrick and Lisa!

My bride-to-be buddy!


Grillmasters: Jordan and Kern


Carolyn and Matthew


Matthew and me


After dinner, we gathered for a precious farewell speech and a creative game.

These words cannot do it justice, but Matthew penned an elegant letter that had us laughing, crying and reminiscing. 







"Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance;
they make the latitudes and longitudes."
Henry David Thoreau
