Dontae was the greatest person I could’ve ever met in my life, I’m so glad I got to meet a person like him. He was like no other. He always told me he would be there for me even if he was dealing with struggles on his own. He always pushed me to do better. He wanted the absolute best for his friends and family. He seen nothing but good in anyone he met.

I didn't know you long, but long enough to know that you were always a positive, smiling person, and nothing kept you down. You sure did make my daughter, Maygen smile and fast became the center of her world. There is NO DOUBT in my mind that you are in Heaven now and will be watching over the ones you love❤️ I firmly believe that you somehow touched everyone you came in contact with in some special way. You will be forever in our hearts❤️
