This especially challenging week for all of us brought about an even deeper hurt. The passing of our dear friend and Lake Charles High School Class of 1977 classmate and President, Marcus Matte. The news of Marcus' unexpected passing earlier this week just plain hurts. We all have our special memories of great times with Marcus that we all will cherish the rest of our lives. Marcus was the true Mr. LCHS for our generation. I have never heard a bad word about him from anyone because there was nothing bad to say. His smile and charisma brightened people's spirits. Marcus set sports records, led teams, was our Class President and he was our friend. He knew how to live life on his terms. May Marcus rest in peace knowing that his contributions to humanity while he was on this earth were meaningful, loved and appreciated. My heart and prayers go out to his sister Jennifer Matte, his mom, the entire Matte family and to his very close friends at this sad time. I hope that the many special memories of times with Marcus help comfort and sustain them as we say goodbye to our dear friend. ---Paul Hart Miller
