25 February - Sad News

We're sad to report Matt's Dad, Jolly, passed away this week.

Matt had this to say on his facebook page

"Sorry to announce that Jolly Backer, father, husband, brother, grandfather, uncle, great uncle, great friend, wit, sage and raconteur cashed in his chips at the tender age of 92.  A highly decorated World War 2 veteran, he was ample proof of his generation being made of sterner stuff than we can begin to imagine."

Condolences to the Backer clan in the US and UK.
