To the Matthews Family,
We moved onto Matthews Road in Cedar Hill, TN in August, 1991. Mr. & Mrs. Matthews were our closest neighbors and such good people. We have many good memories of visiting them and swinging on their patio swing. They were so good to us and loved our boys and we all loved them. We did not learn of his passing until today and we are sad. You are in our prayers.

Dear Hal and the whole Matthews Family,
I am thinking of you so much right now, but then, I have thought of you so many times over the many, many years I have known you. Coach Matthews will certainly be missed, but his fine example of decency and caring will stay with us always. That smile in his photo and the twinkle of his eyes...how could we ever forget that?

Dear Brett & Matthews Family, Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Have heard such great and loving stories about Mr. Matthews over the years and know Albert was such an inspiration to many many people.
Lordy, he's gone home now, he was a fair, considerate man. Never heard a bad word come out of his mouth, I can still hear him on the practice field,"up down, up down " I also remember he loved to fish lake Acworth. I am so blessed to have known him, thank you Lord for that blessing.
Always admired Coach Matthews as did all who knew him at Acworth High School. Beverly Fowler
Coach Matthews will forever live in the hearts of all the young men he mentored onto the football field. He was an instructor of courage, perseverance and sportsmanship. Many great men in our community are a direct result of his guidance, patience and love. Although I have to be in Texas for my niece's wedding this weekend, my prayers are with the entire family of the loss of yet another pillar of our community.
RIP Uncle Albert! You will be greatly missed...??
Yesterday our Coach, Albert H. Matthews went home to be with his Lord and Savior! Goodbye for now Coach! We will see you on the other side! We respect you, we admire you, we love you, and we miss you already! See you at The Homecoming! My condolences to the Family!
