WEST MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Family members say 14-year-old Isaiha Kobow was looking forward to high school.  Instead, of going to his graduation ceremony at West Milwaukee Intermediate School, family and friends of this much loved 8th grader attended his funeral services in the school's gymnasium Saturday.

Following visitation from 10am until Noon, mourners participated in a celebration of life for Isaiha Kobow.

Kobow had been spending the night at a friend's West Allis duplex when fire trapped the boys on a second floor March 17th.

Services for Kobow's friend, 14 year old Michael Gonzalez, were held last week.  Gonzalez's two younger brothers survived the fire.
