  4. Dear Kayla & Family,

    I offer my deepest sympathies on the loss of Dakota. I was shocked to hear of his passing. He was a good man and I know he was committed to bettering his life – not only for himself but for his family. It was a privilege to have him as a client. Please know that Dakota and you are all in my prayers.
