My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Mattie was one of my favorite people and she will be sorely missed.
Our sincere sympathy in the loss of Mattie. She and Alvin were like "second parents" to my sons, Alan and Kevin McCray, when they were little. May your hearts be warmed by loving memories of such a special gal.

Saddened to hear of this. I will miss her smile & kindness in my beauty shop.
Mattie was a sweet classy lady, and we enjoyed playing cards with her at the Cleo Springs Senior Center. We are so sorry to hear about her passing.
