Vicky....We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Can't even imagine what you are going through to lose a handsome young man such as your son, but you know that you can always go to the Lord for comfort. Dakota will always and forever be in your heart. Hold on to that for strength. And remember that you will one day see him again in the Kingdom of Heaven. We are praying for your entire family.
