......"I remember being surprised, years ago, to find out Metin had become an artist. When I knew him, he had his hands full being a daytime soccer coach and nighttime and weekend actor ... and doing pretty well at both. It doesn't surprise me he turned to painting, however. He had a flair for drama and self-expression. Nor does it surprise me that he uses so much of that talent on charitable work. He's one of those people who always seem grateful for every day they're given, every breath they take, every opportunity someone puts in their way. People like that, like Metin, always give back more than their fair share."
