    Our talks about everything meant so much to me. Even though it drove his Mom crazy when we got on a roll. I'm going to miss him. There are no words to ease this pain. Just know you all are in my heart every minute

    Anne, I can't believe it. Wish I could be there with you. When you are ready call me, come see me or I would love to come be with you. REALLY! 828 216-3079. I loved Dylan so much. It was so great to be with him and you when he was so very little. Montana remembers him as being so much older than him even though they were just 2 years apart. I remember coming home from my bike trip and you had this little beautiful baby boy. You have been such a great mother to him.I will see if I have pictures. Dylan and I had just become friends on Facebook back in January. I wanted to get to know him through his Facebook page. On March 30th at 9 am I was in NYC visiting my daughter and he waved at me on face book. It doesn't sound like much but it made me really happy. My heart breaks. Love you so much and I will be praying for you!
