Dakota's Funeral Expenses
The support we've received has just been overwhelming, and I want to thank everyone involved with donations, and personal support we've received. Dakota will be laid to rest with the most amazing sendoff you can imagine. Dakota was a football nut. You would NEVER catch him without a football in hand. He watched every game every week. All proceeds will be put into a fund called "Kotas Kickoff". The funds will be used to pay all costs associated with little league football for 11 children each year whos parents cannot afford for them to enjoy the sport he so dearly loved. The local little league program has agreed to match every penny that Dakota contributes.
I know as a parent there arnt words to say to someone who has lost a child. I do want your family to know that i have prayed for your daily comfort during this time. Dakota was a friend to my son jeremy. They shared p.e. class together. This has affected jeremy deeply. He really had great things to say about Dakota. I am one of the crossing guards for the junior high and elementary. This too has truly affected me. Your son has left a mark on those who knew him and those who diddnt. I am glad jeremy was able to befriend such a good and kind young man named Dakota and again i am so sorry you are going through what i feel is the hardest trial in life. From my family to yours you remain in our thoughts and prayers.
