Some sad news...

Post by Erik Rutins »

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, David Heath's father, Thomas Heath, passed away on Friday morning. Tom was a great father to Dave, Liz and Danny, a great Grandpa and a great friend to all of us in the company. He supported Dave and all of his kids in everything they did and always had a kind word, encouragement, or a good joke to tell whenever he was with us as part of the Matrix team at our conventions.

We will all miss him.

Please understand that as the Heath family (Dave, Elizabeth and Daniel) are a key part of Matrix Games, some parts of our operations will be delayed and e-mails to them are likely to go unanswered this week.

So sorry for your loss Dave. I know words seem hollow during these horrible times yet it was spoken in Matthew 5:4  “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”

 I'm sure your father knew your love for him and also felt the pride of such a accomplished son.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you David and family.

Sad to hear this news David.

Remember though, he is remembered well, which is something all of us would like to have.
He lives on as a good memory.
