Donald “Little Donald,” Coty, Jr., 20, was born January 27, 1996 at K.U. Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas to the union of Tina Cruise and Donald Coty, Sr.

Little Donald went to grade school in the Kansas City, Kansas School District, during the years he lived with his father.

His smile and laughter will truly be missed. (I love you Brother, from your Big Sis.)
