Matt Goodman never got to have a beer with his dad.
The 21-year old Massachusetts man lost his father, John, to cancer six years ago. But before he passed, John wanted to make sure that he was able to buy his son his first (legal) beer. So this past weekend, that’s exactly what he did.
Before he passed, John had given Matt’s sister, Casey, a $10 bill and told her to save it for Matt’s 21st birthday so that he could buy Matt his first drink. Casey and her mother kept it in an envelope in a closet for 6 years – and kept it a secret from Matt until he turned 21.
This weekend, the night before he turned 21, the family finally gave Matt the $10, and the following morning they went out to breakfast so that John could buy Matt his first beer.
