As most of us now know through recent events, my brother Dasan spent a long time in a hidden depression. 
We found out this morning that due to the way he left us, there is no life insurance to help with his burial. 

We would like to raise enough money to bring him back home to Leesburg VA, to host a proper funeral service and bury him next to our mom.

Dasan impacted the lives of many in the most positive ways. His smile was infectious, we just wish he had expressed what he was going through so we could have been there for him earlier, as he had been for many people.

Any help is appreciated, even if it is just $5.00. 

Dasan- we love you so much and will always carry you in our thoughts, prayers and our hearts.

Thank you to everyone that was able to attend Dasan's burial service yesterday morning. Our family greatly appreciates the support.

Below is information for the Life Celebration service for tomorrow. Guests can begin to arrive as early as 12:00 noon and the service will begin at 1:00 pm.

First Mount Olive Baptist Church
216 Loudoun Street SW

If possible, please wear red, black or yellow. Red/Black were Dasan's favorite colors and yellow as a symbol of suicide prevention awareness.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow to celebrate his life.

Thank you again!

Thank you all for your patience while we worked on arrangements for Dasan.

Due to circumstances out of our family's control, we are left with no choice but to do a graveside ceremony for Dasan on Wednesday March 21st 2018 at 2:00 pm in Leesburg, VA at Mount Zion Community Cemetery.

We feel Dasan deserves a full celebration of his life, so on Saturday March 24th 2018, we will be hosting a Life Celebration Service in Leesburg VA, followed by a prayer at the burial site and a repass afterwards.

We welcome anyone that would like to wish a final farewell to Dasan to join us either Wednesday or Saturday.

My brother was a unique and loving man who deserves a meaningful celebration of his life.

Thank you for the continuous support during this time.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you need additional information!

Thank you so much everyone for your generous donations. We are in the process of solidifying a date and working on getting Dasan home to Virginia.

The team at GoFundMe has asked us to post the following updates:
1. 100% of all funds raised in this campaign will go towards the Funeral Services and burial for Dasan Holloway in Leesburg Virginia.

2. The monies generated through this campaign will be deposited into an account which will only be used for funeral services and burial expenses for Dasan.

3. At this time, we should have a funeral home selected by COB on Saturday March 10th 2018.

One of the hardest things to do is to bury your loved one, especially for our father to bury his son. Today, March 9th would have been Dasan's 35th birthday and we hope he can see the number of people he impacted in his lifetime. He will never be forgotten and will always remain in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Deespeed99 forever.
