GTA Family Member sofiecat Passed
« on: January 10, 2017, 06:31:20 PM »
As a result of the email bomb I sent out earlier to all members, I received some bad news. One of our family, Jack Matthews, Jr. passed away 11-28-2015 after a long and hard fought battle with pancreatic and liver cancer. His ashes were scattered at one of his and his wife's favorite places, so he is at peace now. If you are so inclined, please say a prayer for Jack, wife Debbie and their entire family. We have tragically lost another of our family.

    Sad news. Jack attended some of our first fun shoots. He was a good guy, and liked his air guns. Condolences to his family, and prayers sent.
