We are so sorry for the lost of your dear husband and son! I truly appreciate working with Matt he never never pressured me. He didn’t want to make anyone’s life harder. May our Father in heaven Jehovah, the God of all comfort sustain you and your family. May you feel his warm embrace and may the hope of the paradise to come helps you move one day at time. Please be assured that we keep you and your family in thoughts and prayers!

Sending my condolences to the Gregori, Sousa, and West County Transportation families. I worked with Justin and Matt in while at A-Z Bus Sales and got to know them well. Their loss is unimaginable. May their families find comfort in knowing how loved they were locally and in their professional roles as well.

Justin is the heart and soul of West County Transportation Agency and I don’t know how we’re going to move forward without him. Matt was his best friend and again, another anchor for West County Transportation Agency. Grieving as hard as my coworker family is, I can’t imagine what Matt and Justin‘s family are going through. I wish I could take all of the pain and hurt away. But know that these men were loved and respected, and we are all here for their families.

The loss of loved ones is never easy, especially this time of year when families look forward to spending time together during the holidays. It doesn't ease the pain, but it helps to know that money and financial needs are taken care of. My prayers go out to the families.
