Special Birthday Celebration

The DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office hosted a very special 12th Birthday Party for Coby Williams Monday night at the DeSoto Training Facility in Grand Cane.  Coby is the son of Corporal Latoya Dedmond, who tragically lost her life due to an unforeseen medical emergency on November 1st. 

Given the circumstances of late, Sheriff Richardson felt it fitting to help make Coby’s birthday one to remember, and one that would honor him and his mother.  Our office worked alongside DeSoto Parish Schools to get the word out to Coby’s classmates, and the party was scheduled for 5pm on November 22nd. 

In attendance were many classmates, family members, deputies, and local Fire Districts.  Hot dogs, hamburgers, and cake were provided by Sheriff Richardson, while many deputies pitched in together to provide gifts.  Fire District 8 learned that Coby had a fondness for Firefighting, so many fire engines were on site for kids to view and enjoy as well.

Sheriff Richardson would like to thank everyone in attendance and those who pitched in to make this very special event happen.  We wish Coby a very happy 12th birthday!
