10/11 News Covers Story Of Gratitude In Dorchester

On this Thanksgiving weekend, we wanted to share this story of gratitude from Dorchester.

Last weekend, 10/11 News was in Dorchester to cover the benefit for the family of six-year-old Kody Krapp, son of Chad and DHS graduate Kelly (Krivohlavek) Krapp of Gretna.  

Kody passed away earlier this month following a life-long heart condition and complications from open-heart surgery. Many of our readers know the extended Krivohlavek family and how stressful this has been.

The TV station reported: "Parents Kelly and Chad Krapp don’t know what to say at times, after watching friends and even people they don’t know continue to fill the community building. 'Overwhelming,' Chad said."

"The family needs help, as medical bills and funeral costs add up. At a silent auction and pancake benefit, help is what they’re hoping for."

"'In a small town, this is what you do,' said family friend Lisa Lautzenhiser. 'You come together and you help friends and you stick together.'"

See 10/11's story and video footage here.

If you would like to financial help the family of Kody Krapp, even if it's only a couple of dollars, it's easy.  Just go to:

  1. Items like this, more than anything else, is what will draw folks to live in our wonderful community. The sense of belonging, sharing, and caring about each other is lost to those who reside in cities. This is a great place to live and raise a family.
