“Dillon You have my undying love. Every day for the rest of my life, I will miss you. I am extremely proud of the person you have grown into—someone nice, humorous, intelligent, diligent, motivated, and loving. No matter where we were or how old we were, we could always play like we did when we were little because you were such a joy to be around. I know you also loved me, and I’ll love you forever. I appreciate you being my little brother. #live4dillon #SuicideAwareness”

In his nearly 18 years, Dillon told me he loved me every single day. He knows I adore him too, I’m sure of it. Until then, my dear little boy. #live4dillon #suicideawareness”
