Cam'Ron Matthews

Ten days ago my hometown of Alto, TX experienced a tragedy that is unfathomable.  During the Friday night football game, Cam'Ron Matthews collapsed on the sidelines and was life flighted to Tyler.  He passed the following day.  It was determined he suffered an aneurysm. 

Cam'Ron's mom and grandma were a fixture at the schools in Alto.  They were the sweetest ladies and so very kind.  Mrs. Gayla still works at the school as the Middle School Secretary.  They are an amazing family.  I may not have known Cam'Ron but it is so apparent by the outpouring of love and support for this precious family just how amazing this young man was. 

Alto came together, and they supported one of their own.  They raised money, gave honor and prayed constantly.  The communities around East Texas sent support through wearing black & gold, holding fundraisers and sending prayers.  It was a tragedy to lose Cam'Ron - Friday nights will never be the same - but what an amazing young man he was in life and through his death he brought together more people in unity than anyone could have ever imagined. 

Last Friday, my little Troup Tigers are Alto Yellow Jackets today. They never met Cam'ron or any of his family, but know who Cam'ron was..he was a son, brother, grandson, friend, cousin and most of all a child of God. They know he is in heaven now and he is visiting with their Grandma and Pawpaw. They know that even though Cam'ron is happy, his family misses him fiercely. And they are convinced his angel wings are black and gold.  #ALTOgether
