Mattie celebrated "kinship -- being related by life
and by choice, and not necessarily by blood ties."

His "About Fathers" poem expresses his love
for the many people who were like fathers to him.

Happy Father's Day - to all men and women 
who choose to be role models and mentors.

Please don't forget to support
our birthday campaign --
$25 to celebrate Mattie's 25 years.
