Dear Mrs. Matera and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Matera was such a nice and kind man. I was your waitress at Waynesboro Country Club for many years. I so enjoyed seeing your family come for dinner and getting to know you.

Matt will be missed.
I have known Matt the past 10 years since being a volunteer with SCORE. Matt was always there for everyone and a great inspiration for all. Every time we ended a phone conversation, he would always say, "give my regards to Linda", my wife.

Our condolences and thoughts for his wife, Palma, and family.

Dear Palma and Family - Leo & I were so sorry to hear of Matt's passing, but know he is now free of pain and enjoying the Peaceful Light of his Savior. It was always uplifting to see him at Mass, he always had a special hug and greeting and always had time for conversation no matter where we saw him!! Both you, Palma, and Matt have been missed in Waynesboro since your move, but, at the same time, we are happy you were both close to family at the time he received God's call!
Love to all of you,
Leo and Pat Cekada
