We the family of NICL Laboratories, related by values to Matt Borbon through his son Manny Borbon, wish this special family our regrets at the sad loss of their patriarch Matt D. Borbon on February 21, 2017. We recognize and respect the invaluable family values that have been modeled by him throughout his life, and which are still living and strongly expressed through legacy to the many children and grandchildren that have and will emerge going forward indefinitely. We hope together to find insight and peace in the sad events following Matt's funeral and wish that you all may find some meaning in a Chapter that speaks to the Borbon place going forward. Ref: 1 John 3King James Version (KJV) 3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. P.Kent, Director NICL Laboratories.
