On the morning of February 17th, 2014 a friend of mine was the victim of senseless violence. Rashode was a real joker and knew how to make fun of people while still making them laugh in good fun. He had plans on making a positive impact for the community, and it's a shame that he was taken from us too soon.
My heart goes out to Rashode's family and to his wife. He was a very kind person toward me in high school and I appreciated the fact that he made an effort to keep in touch every once in awhile since graduating. The last we spoke he messaged me about wanting to be a mechanic and asked if I could make him a logo of a panda to fit with what he wanted. I did this in memory of Rashode. We lost a great person.
If you want to issue a donation of any form ($10, $20, $100) to help his family provide Rashode a proper burial, please go to Wells Fargo and place it in the Rashode T Matthews Memorial Fund, Account #2601662238.
