    This man is my grandfather, I never met him. I understand he had feuds with his sons, including my father Curt, but he had four other sons.
    I don’t know why Jim is the only one mentioned out of the five of them that came from my grandmother. But Jim Mattson, Bob Mattson, Gary Mattson, Craig Mattson, and Curt Mattson are all his sons too. It bothers me that whoever wrote this obituary is trying to ruin the history of our family.
    I realize that this is 3 years going now, but I could never find an obituary with a section with comments.
