    Grandma Nancy, We're so glad we were able to make the trip to see you all three years ago for you both to meet our oldest, Hayden. We hope you find peace and rest, even as you're separated from Grandpa Dean now, but looking back on your life of memories. We're so thankful that Kent and Kay are there with you to be able to grieve Grandpa Dean's loss together. We love you all and are thinking of you daily.

    Dear Family, I am so very sorry about the loss of year dear loved one. May the thought at Job 33:25 give you comfort in knowing that Mr. Mattern will return to the days of his youth and be able to enjoy life without the infirmities of old age. My sincere condolences to you.

    Our deepest sympathies to all the Mattern's on the loss of Uncle Dean. I'll always remember the house on Columbia Rd. in Westlake with the pool. FYI , Grandma's old house on Bassett Rd. is a historical home now and part of Westlake's 200th Celebration this year. Sorry to hear of Uncle Dean's passing. Donna (daughter of Donald and Dorothy Mattern)
