Noah Dinger was many things. A beloved husband & father. A hardworking man. A wonderful son & dear, dear friend. I’ve seen Kaylei & Noah grow together. When they welcomed their first son. I had the honor of attending the birth of their second baby as a doula. I’ve cried tears of joy for them as they shared vows and officially became husband and wife. I love Kaylei & Noah & their boys. Noah was truly the most dedicated husband and loving father. He was so fun, and funny. The love he had for Kaylei and his boys was beautiful. Beyond words.

Like I said before, Kaylei and Noah truly were the fairy tail couple everyone longed to be. The love between the two of them will forever go unmatched.
Kaylei and I were the best of friends in high school and I have so much love for her and her sweet little family, and Noah and I were good friends too and graduated HS together. This is absolutely so heart breaking. Please donate, share, pray, etc. This beautiful momma and her babies need all the love and support they can get.
