Mr Matthew came into our florist a couple of months ago. I helped him pick out flowers for his mothers death..What a funny funny man! I had fun cutting up with him!
He also said I was his future ex wife as I have seen in these comments..
I was so sad to hear of his passing. May God rest his soul and stay with the family in their time of need.
I am sure they will miss his dearly. Here at Dutch Iris florist we were honored to be able to make his casket spray with his fire helmet in it.
Sorry for the loss.
