Hello Matt! This is Susan Spencer and I taught you in 5th grade! I remember you well! You were so kind and an excellent student. Your sweet grandmother came to Dunn every week to volunteer for us. She was wonderful and loved you so much! I just happened to see her picture here while I was checking on someone else. I’m very sorry over your huge loss! What an amazing lady she was!!!

I was so sorry to hear about the death of "Mo-Mo". I know how close you two have been over the years and I know you will really miss her. She was definitely your champion and supported you in everything you did. I will always remember her sweet demeanor and her kindness. May you find comfort in all the memories you have of her. Blessings, Ouida Wright Garner

Beth, I am so sorry for your loss. We lived across the street from you and your family years ago when I was growing up. I spent many afternoons at your house playing with Lou. Your Mom was always so nice and a good neighbor to our family as well. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Dana (Sonka) Shoemaker
