Matt Cole (Matt76 here) was killed yesterday morning at about 5:00 am while driving home from work. A drunk crossed into his lane and hit him head on. Matt was such a good kid. He worked part time at Whitey's cigar shop in Maryville, IL while he was in college. After graduating, he went to work as a supervisor on the loading dock of a trucking company in St Louis. He was only 23 years old.
I'm stunned. I thought very highly of Matt. He was a good kid and a good friend to anyone who knew him.

This is awful. Why can't people learn that if you're going to drink, drink responsibly and don't drive! I've heard way too many stories lately (and throughout my life) of things just like this. What a tragedy.
My thoughts and prayers are with Matt's family. May Matt rest in peace.
