    Got some sad news yesterday when I was told that a regular poster here had passed away. His username was GreenPetey and some of you may recognize his avatar.
    [img]http://www.jetsinsider.com/forums/uploads/av-369.jpg[/img]
    His real name was Peter Matta who was a diehard Jets fan with his wife for over 35 years. Peter was also a retired Police Sergent who dedicated his life to law enforcement and helping others.

    Peter fell ill just before the new year and after a month long battle, succombed to his illness.

    Peter's wife Paula also posts here as well under the username "gottalovethechad".

    On behalf of the site I'd like to wish the highest of sympathy to Paula and the entire Matta family for their loss of Peter. If you would like to send sympathy wishes to Paula you can PM her at "gottalovethechad" or e-mail her at [email=pmatta32@hotmail.com]pmatta32@hotmail.com[/email]

    God Bless you, Peter.

    He was one of the most vibrant, life-embracing people I've ever seen. he seemed to be a really friendly, affable guy.

    This is sad news.


    "No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."
