Memorial Bench for Dmitrius Marith

I've been in contact with the owner of the Kelso cemetery, Bill, for the last couple of months. After Dmitri passed I spent most days at the monument, located at the top of the hill of the cemetery, and that's where I met Bill. We talked and decided to install a granite bench engraved with Dmitri's name and dates on it right next to the monument at the cemetery. Where we will be able to visit in honor of him, and take in the view that Dmitri loved so much. That spot was one of Dmitri's favorites. He brought his family and friends there, and shared with me that it's where he always went when he needed time to think or get away. He loved how it overlooked the city. I wouldn't know about that spot if it wasn't for him. This bench is in honor of Dmitri, and anyone who would like to contribute to it is more than welcome to by donating to this go fund me. As a community we can come together to honor his name. The money will be put towards the bench itself, the base, engravement etc, which all together is over 3,000. Any help is appreciated.
