    You’re in my thoughts, sending you all the love and hugs. My heart goes out to you all, we shouldn’t have to say goodbye to our friends. However, I hope you all continue to live life to the fullest and know you always have me cheering for you even if we don’t talk regularly.

    Dylan, I didn’t know you well but what I did know of you was that you were always kind and the first to wave or send a smile my way. I know you’ll be greatly missed and I’m so sorry for your loss.
    Rest in Peace Sweetheart.
