In Loving Memory of Dahlia

Our dear friend, Dahlia Topete passed away on April 4, 2018 after a long battle with cancer.  She leaves behind her husband Robert and their two daughters Ashlee and Alyssa.  To help support Dahlia’s family during this difficult time, we have set up this page to help with funeral costs and future college costs for their daughter Alyssa who will be graduating from High School this year.

Thank you all for any support that you can provide!

We miss you Dahlia!

Dahlia’s husband has written the below:

There are no words to express our deepest gratitude for all the love, prayers and thoughtfulness you showed Dahlia and the family during our difficult times.

We are truly moved by the continued support that we are still receiving now that our beloved Dahlia has passed on.

Your kindness will always be remembered.

May God bless all of you.


Robert, Ashlee and Alyssa.
“Many people will walk in and out of your life but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart”
Please join us in celebrating Dahlia’s life.
