I didn't know Dylan but a loss like that is hard on any family if you knew them or not. I was in school with Donna and knew Colleen and Paul. Worked with Paul at the hospital. Many hugs and prayers for the families involved.

So very sorry for the tragic loss of your Dylan.
The pain of losing a loved one can be overwhelming.
Our heavenly Father promises us that very soon he will 'swallow up death forever, and wipe the tears from all faces' Isaiah 25:8.
What a wonderful future hope that is.
There is much Bible based comfort to be found on jw.org

Dylan, you were the best boyfriend a girl could ever ask for. When my parents had asked you if you could help them do something while you were over, you didn't even think twice. You made a good role model for Tanner and Deyton. They would always ask if you could come over and do things with them. Tanner always wanted to go hunting or go fishing or just drive around with you. He loved your pick up, he wanted it so dang bad, that he didn't know what to do. I'll always remember all the memories we made, all the crazy things we did and talked about. But I'll always be your girlfriend and you'll always be my boyfriend and love of my life! I love you babe, watch over me and keep me safe! Rest easy and fly high! I love you so much! 😇😚😚😚💘
