Although distance prevents our paths from crossing with any regularity, we love our fun-loving and charming cousins from Tennessee still. Our hearts are heavy for you during this time of grief and sadness. But we also like to think Aunt Mary DeMatteo has another loved-one to make spaghetti and meatballs for up in heaven. God's speed to you A. And love & blessings to all.

Dear Dematteo Family:
I am so sorry for your loss!!!
"A" was such a kind soul. When I came to Hixson at 15 yrs old from California, he and his friends were so welcoming to me even though I was from the crazy western state & even worse I was born in the north. I will never forget the killer times we all had together!!
Cheers to you A & see you another day! Give Mike & Heather a big hug for me.
Sending love & light to you all!
