Mateo Family Fund

This beautiful, kind, funny, tall, boy passed away February 18, 2020.  Shannon, Rob, Codi, his grandparents (Anna and Kirk and Cora and Al) and his many, many friends and family lost this amazing kid to suicide.  

Help us raise some funds to assist the Mateo family with all the unexpected costs,  and most importantly, lets help take some pressure off of them financially, giving them a chance to take the time they need to mourn their loss and heal as best they can. 

Brandon reached out for help in December.  His family immediately got him help in the form of therapy, which he chose, and medications, which he also chose.  Hours and hours were spent together, surrounding him with love and talking through the difficult times. He was getting better.  His smile became bigger and it came more often. He was making plans. He was going snowboarding with his dad this weekend and he had plans to go to Portland with Shannon in March. But somehow, something changed. We will never know what happened on that tragic day, what changed in such an instant. What grabbed ahold of him and wouldn't let go. But what we all know, all of those who knew him, is that a piece of our puzzle is now missing and the picture will never be complete again.
