"Sorry to hear about the passing of Miss Mattie. We will always remember her beautiful smile as she greeted you; she will be missed. She was a dear friend to my mother, Dorothy "Mutt" Moore, that goes back to when they met back in the late 1960's and also worked together at Langdale Mill in the 70's."

"I would like to express my deepest sympathy to your family, I had the privilege of meeting Mrs.Mattie and my first impression of her was that of being someone who was very special to her family.  I can only imagine what the loss of the matriarch of the family would and could feel like, but our heavenly Father Jehovah knows firsthand the pain associated with death because he too gave his only begotten son Jesus so that we could entertain the hope of seeing our loved ones again. (Psalms 83:18 & John 3:16, Acts 24:15) Please be assured that it is impossible for God to lie and the tears that have been shed will soon turn into tears of joy as you welcome Mrs.Mattie back to life in God's new world where all the things the we experience will be a thing of the past according to Revelation 21:3-5.  Until that time please be of good courage!"

This tribute was added by DA Frazier on 12th January 2016

"Please accept my condolences, a loved one lost can grieve the heart but we have our loving Heavenly Father to comfort us at this time of grief. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4"

This tribute was added by Mrs. Godfrey on 11th January 2016

"To the family and friends of Mrs. Mattie. I was saddened to hear about the loss of Mrs. Mattie. I am a Bible student, and one scripture that has always comforted me when dealing with the death of a loved one is Ish. 25:8, which states, "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." It is my prayer that you too may find comfort in the "God of all comfort." (2Cor 1:3)"

"To the Family of Ms. Frazier,
   I just read where she passed away on Wednesday.  I feel honored that I was able to take care of her on her last night on this Earth.  When we gave her a bath she opened her eyes and was trying to say something to us but could not get those words out.  My sympathy to her family especially Sallye and her grandchildren that I met at EAMC.  We must all aspire to be the great lady she was.  I watched the YOU Tube Video of her in the pink hat, not looking anywhere near her age.  Light up Heaven like you did Earth!!!!!

"To The  Family of the Late Mrs. Mattie Frazier:

I count it a Blessing to have known such a Beautiful and Loving Christian Woman.  To me she was Mrs. Mattie, but to my daughters Tiffany and Tabatha she was "Big Mama".  She made everyone whom she came in contact with feel loved and special.  Her arms were always open to give a hug to show her compassion and concern for others and her beautiful smile was always bright and could lift up a downcast spirit. Everytime I saw her she would always say..."Come here girl and give me a hug."  It was always a pleasure to see her sitting behind the desk in the office at Davis Mortuary and I would always tell her that She was the one who was really "in charge".  

Mrs. Mattie has left behind a family, church family and so many others who will cherish her memory in their own individual way.  The life that she lived will truly be an after glow for all to remember.

I can think of no better way to pay tribute to Mrs. Mattie than the following poem.

"After Glow"

I'd like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow
Of SMILES when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve,
To dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.  (Carol Mirkel)"

"My memories of "Aunt Mattie" brings smiles to my face. I haven't seen her in a while until I saw her at the Mortuary in July. She hugged me and loved on me just like she did when I was a little girl as she visited my Grandparents. I will miss her, her smile, and most definitely that laugh. Rest in heaven "Aunt Mattie", I will always love you!

"Mrs. Mattie has one of the most infectious smiles along with her enthusiasm for being a Christian!  Whether she saw you in church or out, whether it had been months or a few years since she last saw you this lady was the same and that smile could brighten any dark room. She was my first Sunday School teacher at Mountain Springs as I remember those days so well and she also was your cheerleader whenever you attempted to do the work of the Lord. Mrs. Mattie truly exemplified what it means to be an authentic Christian lady.  Truly a class act. "Rest in Peace" Mrs. Mattie."
