    I offer my condolences to the Hogge and Richardson family members on the passing of this special lady. She watched a many a ballgame and I was honored to have her cheer for me while I played with my buddy's. I will never forget the horn blowing from the parking lot at Kiwanis field or the best chow chow I ever ate. May peace be with the family.

    My sincerest sympathies to Johnny, Bobby, Tommy and your families. Aunt Matt was a dear lady and thinking of her brings back lots of fond memories from Christmas lunches with the Richardson clan to our baseball games in the front yard to her constant presence at all our baseball games. She will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your families at this time. May God bless and hold you near at this time. God Bless
