Mathew James Padilla passed away on Sunday, February 13, 2022. He is survived by his parents Kim Dalla (Al Martinez) and Michael Padilla (Amber Sloan) and sisters Michele and Lexi and brother Eric. And his grandfather, Charles Dalla and Uncle Carlo Dallapiccola. Along with numerous cousins. Mathew put up a good fight for 6 months, he was braver and stronger than I could ever be.
I will aways remember Mathew’s smile, it was the best. It was kind and friendly, yet it had a hint of mischief that made you always wonder what he was thinking.
Mathew was my only child, yes, he was a little spoiled and some may even say a mama’s boy. This mama’s life has been forever changed, he may have been 39 years old but in my heart, he is my sweet boy, and I will always miss him.
