I was a classmate of Dr. Matthew's son, Allan, at Rice University, and I always thought Allan was so lucky to have such a cool dad. I remember how much he seemed to genuinely enjoy entertaining us college kids, either in his home or out at that local beer garden whose name I have long forgotten. I was a thousand miles from home and had no money while at Rice, and when he discovered my wisdom teeth were impacted, he extracted them free of charge. He spread the procedure over two visits, so I would be able to chew on one side of my mouth while the other side healed. Since it was pro bono, he easily could have justified doing the whole job all at once, but he treated me with the compassion and respect he would extend to his best clients, and that generosity left an indelible impression on me. To this day, whenever I hear any mention of oral surgery, I am immediately taken back 30 years to that image of Dr. Matthews with his knee in my chest and prying those molars out of my head. Thanks for your kindness, Dr. Matthews. May you rest in peace.

Dr. Matthews will never be forgotten. Serving him as his last dental assistant, I can honestly say he that he was a great teacher. He was more like family to me. I wished I could tell you that Andrew and I finally got married and now have a baby boy! The news brings tears to my eyes. I am forever grateful for having to work with Dr Matthews. My husband and I will never forget you Doc. As I remember playing a game of throwing a soft football down the hall way in your office during lunch break while Shay yells "Dr Matthews your going to hurt your back!" How everyone of your patients were more like family. There's so much I want to say.
We will greatly miss you Doctor Matthews and we love you like part of our family. Thank you so much for all you have taught me.

Vince was my cousin and I will miss him dearly, we have been out of touch for years but his sister Oma contacted me a few years back and we reunited with her in Houston in Oct and had a great visit. Unfortunately Vince was too ill for me to see him but I did visit Oma and her family and will remember them for the rest of my life. R.I.P. cousin Vince.
