    So sad to hear of Ms Mattie Lou’s passing. She was one of the kindest, gentlest, loving people I have had the pleasure of knowing. The world lost a treasure, but heaven has gained a wonderful angel.

    Ms. Mattie was a joy and I was honored to be able to care for her at Southern Manor. She always had that beautiful smile on her face every time I seen her. We all loved her @ Southern Manor. RIP my dear sweet lady.
