I met Dylan through friends and he grew on me quickly. I loved listening to him tell stories. One of the sweetest, coolest, funniest guys I had the pleasure of knowing. My heart aches because the world definitely couldn't afford to lose people like Dylan. He is missed dearly and always remembered fondly and with so much love.
