Dalton, I remember the day you were born! How happy your mom was to have you here. You were special the moment you came into the world. Your silly quirky jokes, your beautiful blue eyes and handsome smile are only a few ways to describe you Dalton. One thing I know, you were loved to no end. Your mom was so proud of you. You are truly missed! I know you and pawpaw are up there watching over everyone, and laughing at all the craziness ❤️. We love you both so much. Love, Joannie, Darby and Trevor Bryan

Dalton was a wonderful person. Those of you who knew him knew he had a quick sense of humor and was very intelligent. I remember him as a little boy who loved dinosaurs and could tellyou about every one of them but could pronounce there names at 6 or 7 years old. I couldn’t even do that. He was adventurous and loved the outdoors. He played with snakes as a young child he knew enough to know which were dangerous and other friendly. I wish he was here he had made such accomplishments in his short life here. He was very political and participated. You definitely didn’t want to play chess with him but he loved playing any board games. We played scrabble, card games, and many others. He loved life and enjoyed the fun things in it. He could be quirky and loved to do things to make others laugh and smile. As his grandmother I know he’s with God now because he has plans for him that we aren’t aware of we miss him still. Love you Dalton “to infinity and beyond”. Love Nana

Dalton, you’re the reason that I have so many of the interests that I do now. In video games, music, movies, and board games, I often looked up to you as many little brothers do, and tried to imitate your interests to spend time with you and eventually grew to love many of the same things. I would never trade having you as my brother for anything in the world. I know that you aren’t truly gone because a part of you will always live through me. I love you.

Dalton, Not a day goes by that I don’t miss you. I love you so much! You had so much going for you. I have SO many fond memories. From the moment you were conceived. Your Nana and I pushing my belly to made thou kick. Your first step, fist words, your fist job and so on. Your sillines, your quick wit your intelligence. I am so proud of who you were. I am sadened by the things you will not accomplish here on earth. My selfishness wabted you to stay. God has a greater purpose. My heart is forever broken forever missing a piece. Love you always! mom

Looks like my phone did a number on this comment. Maybe you were picking at me as you and Koby often did. I love you Dalton.

Dalton will be forever missed. Maybe he didn’t know a lot of people maybe he never found his place in this world. The people who truly got to know him were so very lucky. I was blessed to be his mom. I miss him dearly and love him even more. Not a day will go by where he will not be in my thoughts. I pray you are dancing in the clouds with Jesus. Time can be cruel. Some say time eases pain. Truth is time makes me miss you more and wish I didn’t have to. Till my dying breath I will honor you and try to make sure you are never forgotten! I love you Dalton!
