In the short time since R day, Kade won our hearts. He was quick-witted with a warm smile and a generous heart. He was a good friend to my son and will be deeply missed by those who knew him.
While the Soldiers of the 23d MP Company, members of the NY State Police, US Army Garrison West Point, US Military Academy personnel, and many others conducted a thorough search, the whole West Point community came together and raised our prayers in masse that Kade would be found safe. We prayed for his mom that she would have strength and support. The outcome was our worst fears realized.
Kade is no longer with us, but Kade's family is our family. It's a legacy Kade earned and a promise we will keep.
I am coming to you to ask you to join me in supporting his mom, Anita Mato, and her five children (ages 12, 13, 17, 22, and 27) so they can meet their financial obligations while they are recovering from this terrible shock. On my honor, all proceeds go directly to Kade's immediate family. Any donation helps. Thank you, in advance, for your support.
Kade's memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him. We will cherish his memory. We love you and miss you, Kade.
(Anita Mato, Kade's mother is the direct recipient of all donations. She is married, but currently separated. The back end directly connects with her account. I am assisting her during this time of unimaginable sorrow.)
