Kash Roland Juhala

Donor Hero

Kash was an energetic, fun, loving, friendly little boy. His favorite word was hello. He had a very strong relationship with God and at 2 years old insisted we pray multiple times at every meal. Our little boy is now asleep. Our precious angel we could not keep. Our hearts still broken, our tears still wet. Our Kash Roland we will never forget!
