A very sweet, angelic girl Kayla Matos was taken from us way too soon. She was, and continues to be, extremely loved by her family, friends, and school. She touched lives of so many.

"No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why."

Please help us raise money for her family as we all grieve during this painful time. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your blessings.
