My friend's Robert, Carina and Ray Mate' need our help. Ramon Mate' Arcenas Jr. passed away suddenly Dec 24th, 2015 due to respiratory problems.

The family needs assistance. This unexpected tragedy required them to travel to the Philippines during the holidays to take care of their father and loving husband who died at the age 68.  The unexpected and untimely death of Ramon left the family with large expenses. Any contributions to help them in their time of need is greatly appreciated. 

"I have so many stories about you. If you knew him you would understand what an impact he has made on my life. He made me practice my penmanship on Saturdays. He took us to Coney Island for hot dogs at Nathans. We would have birthday parties at Ceasar's Bay Bazaar, hang out with your friends at Sheepshead Bay, Ned's bar at Rockaway Parkway to play darts, dinners in Chinatown, trips to Montauk and even took us to the Pipeline when you found out we fell in love with Skateboarding. I remember you chasing a man that knocked Robert on his ass to steal his bike in Seaview Park. You beat him up in front of 6 cops. We rode motorcycles together. We partied together. You loved John Lennon, Thurman Munson, the 86 Giants, The Yankees, my mother, my brother and my son Mason Six. You are one of a kind. You know New York like no one. You drove a NY Taxi cab played basketball in the park in Bay Ridge. You survived a Tsumani Haiyan in 2013. You made us laugh and always taught us about how the world works. A True Yorker and one of a kind. I wish you knew him my father was a great man."

Rest in Paradise Dad I love you - Ray Mate'
