This is the letter my
little brother had written before he died.
Dear Mom, Dad, Jamie and
By the time you read this letter, I will probably be gone. Unless
Mom has been snooping in my room again!! I just want to let you
know that I love you guys so much, even though I never really
show it, and I fight with Jamie and Zach a LOT. You four people
mean the WORLD to me and I could never ask for a better family.
Sometimes you can't help me with some of my problems, like
you can't make the cancer go away, but you help me through it
and you keep me going. You don't know how much that means to
me. I could never ask for a better family.
When I die, I don't want you to be sad. I want you to be
happy that I lived, and now I'm going to join God in heaven,
and I'll see Grandma and Grandpa again. We'll be looking
down on you, and smiling. When you're sad, remember us, and
remember that we want you to be happy, and enjoy life while you
can, like we did.
I love you guys so much, and don't worry, because I'll
see you again some day. :)
He was only 9 years old when he died.
he was the most mature kid I've ever known.
This letter is what keeps us going, when we're sad we think
of Dylan and how much he loved his life; how much he would want
us to love life and be happy too.
Rest in peace, Dylan.
