Deepest condolences to the entire Mathews family. Garry's son Mike is a coworker of mine, and is simply as fabulous of an example of a human being as I've ever met. I'm sure he gets most of that from his Mom and Dad. May your grief be eased by the knowledge of what Garry has left behind in his children. -Ben Shockey
