Friends in the Ramona community have set up an opportunity for residents to help out Sue Kohler, mother of 16-year-old Taylor Dorman who passed away this week from cardiac arrest after being struck by a softball during gym class.
Residents told Patch that those willing to give back to Kohler, a single mother who lost her husband to heart failure nearly two years ago, may do so at the Ramona Branch Bank of Southern California.
At a Thursday night vigil in front of Ramona High School, Kohler called her son an "amazing person," and remembered him for his loving personality.
"I think you all know Taylor was an amazing person... he was the kid that when he had to run laps around the baseball field, he had a big smile on his face," she told the large crowd of students that had lit candles in Taylor's memory. "And that's the way he lived his life. He loved his video games, he loved his family, he loved his friends."
An account has been set up by friends in the community at the Bank of Southern California located at 1315 Main St., next to Starbucks. Those interested in helping out Taylor's family can make checks payable to Sue Kohler.
