It is with a sad heart that I learn of the passing of Capt. Robert Matthews. He was a valuable asset to the command staff of the Columbus Police Dept. and I looked upon his leadership as a model to learn by. I treasured his advise and would call upon his experience when I needed it. My heart goes out to Ms. Cynthia and the Matthews family. My prayer is that the Good Lord will abide with your family as you grieve his passing. God Bless you my friend.
