Dakota Gonzales & Curt Orlowski, 18, Tecumseh, Michigan. date of crash: july 3rd, 2014
(tecumseh, mi, usa)
On their way home from work, a truck crossed the median and slammed into these boys car. Both pronounced dead on scene, and 3rd passenger taken to hospital and later released. The driver of the truck was a 19 year old DRUNK male. I don't know much about Curt. However, Dakota was in his first year of college, working and volunteering at an animal shelter. Both believers in Christ. They were 18 and had their lives stolen. They won't get to graduate college, see their siblings marry and have children, have children of their own, buy their own house. So many major milestones now gone because of a 19 year old drunk. In 24 hours, my small town raised over 10,000 from the gofundme.com site being passed around facebook. Our "kenya dig it? 5k race" this weekend was in their honor. Every family in my town was affected because TWO boys lost their lives. Two beautiful boys. I will not get to say I love them to either of them again. Their parents went to bed last night and woke up for the first time with one less kid on Earth. Barely adults, and gone too soon.
