He was dressed in his Celtics jersey, playing National Basketball Association 2K on an XBOX with his favorite snacks and chair.

Ball is life ... and the family of Renard Matthews used his love of the Celtics so others would remember him as they do.

Matthews, a native of New Orleans, will be buried Tuesday at Interment Providence Memorial Park. "Temeka Matthews also said that her son was a big fan of Celtics guard Kyrie Irving". He held a PS4 controller in his hands while a game of NBA2K between the Celtics and Warriors was powered up on the screen.

North Korea says talks with Pompeo were 'regrettable'
It wasn't my language, it was the language of Chairman Kim, he committed to complete denuclearisation. Pompeo said in Tokyo he had pushed North Korea on a promise to destroy a missile engine test site.

During his wake at Charbonnet Labat Glapion Funeral Home in Treme, Matthews' family chose to remember him with what he loved most.

Family and friends gathered for Sunday's wake. His favorite snacks, cereal, Barq's Root Beer and Doritos were placed on a side table next to him. On the television beside him is what appears to be National Basketball Association 2k18, though we can't confirm this.
