Mattie was one of my best friends and I will miss her so much. I have so many special memories of time spent with her, Claude and family. We use to play cards with a group of friends and on several occasions played until the sun came up the next day. She was a great cook and everyone loved her desserts. Rest In Peace my dear friend.
