I am so sorry and heartbroken over your loss. I was lucky enough to have known Dylan and become good friends with him. He always knew what to say to make anything better. I am so thankful for getting to meet him and I miss seeing his smiling face, that smile helped me get through some of my roughest days. Although I cannot imagine the pain you are suffering do remember the special moments you shared, those will last forever. Prayers for your family and remember this isn't goodbye forever just a see ya later.
