Mr. Mathers was ALWAYS a joy when he was here at the dealership. Weather he would mention a quick convo about whiskey when Mrs. Mathers wasnt around, or just bringing the car in for service. I will miss my friend, and offer my thoughts and prayers to you all. Mrs. Mathers may God hold you while you grieve. If you need me, you know where to find me. God’s blessings to you.
