Matthew Zapor

Matthew (11/27/90–01/06/2020) had hypermobility, scoliosis, and a bad heart with high blood pressure from age 11 as well as sinus arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation. He denied it and didn’t believe I had it. His heart was three times the size of a normal man’s. My son’s intelligence was in brilliance. He served five years in the US Navy with many medals and honors and was Seal Team qualified, and had just graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s in Computer Science. So much suffering he endured. I love him and miss him constantly.
