    Lori ,Colin and Jay,
    So sorry for your loss; my wife and I got to see Colin play ball one weekend and the smile that was on Dylan’s face that he got to introduce his family to us will never leave my mind. He was so proud of his two boy’s and very supportive wife left no doubt that you were the center of his universe. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your boys.
