    So sorry for the loss of this man. I was a member of the DHS family for 19 years and knew Mr. Matlock well.

    Juanita and family – I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed being around Gavin when I would attend the occasional train meeting/event. He was so knowledgeable and respected when it came to railroads and shared his knowledge with others and a great sense of humor. My husband, who shared this love of railroads, developed a friendship with Gavin that began many years ago and I know he will miss him very much. I loved your keepsake video you put together of him and shared here. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
