To the Matthews family: You have our sincere condolences at this hour of grief. May your mother now be at peace. Your parents were 2 of the nicest and kindest people I have ever met. Now may they be together for eternity. Beverly, you can contact me at bret2356@aol.com or through Facebook if you would like to talk. I'm not well right now or I would be up there to pay my respects. May God Bless your family. Brett Millering & Laura Gaynor
