Recently, John Mattly was laid to rest, and his family, friends, customers and those who never knew him have expressed their caring for him in so many ways. Let us list some expressions.
We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to Johns friends who served more than 200 chicken luncheons. It was such an expression of love by so many of his friends and we will long remember the kindness of those who served the food and those who contributed by purchasing the lunches.
We also appreciated all of those who contributed to the benefit fund to offset Johns last expenses. John would have been overwhelmed by your expressions of caring in so many ways.
Much of this would have been impossible without The Tribune providing the space and willingness to print the commentary that played an important part in getting the message broadcast. A bouquet to you!
Yes, this community made us aware once again that there are so many caring people in San Luis Obispo County and we will pay it forward.
