    Mr. and Mrs. Hare, you don't know us. My son Jonnny is a close friend of Dylan's. We are sick with the loss of Dylan. Dylan was the direct inspiration for many of his friends to pursue post secondary education or to pursue international travel. Dylan was a peer leader and there are many of his peers whom are grieving right now. I found him to be an inquiring mind, a quick wit, a soft heart, and a challenging spirit. Dylan knew that I worked with the homeless. He always asked questions. I wish there were words that could comfort you but I know only faith can do that now.

    My heart breaks for all of you. I keep thinking of the first time I saw Dylan's smiling face at PRC when our older kids had swimming lessons. He won't be forgotten.

    Mr. and Mrs. Hare, Nathan and Rachel:
    I had the pleasure of being Dylan (and Rachel's) school bus driver for several years. It is so evident that they both come from a loving family, always showing respect and courtesy on a daily basis. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

    Dear Donovan, Ruth, Nathan, Rachel & extended family,
    The first time I met Dylan, we just clicked and he was one of my favorite people to coach. I didn't coach him for long but didn't need to to see that he was a person who had been trained up to think about others. He was a person who had been taught how to work hard. He had been taught to be respectful and to listen when someone is speaking. These are the traits of every coaches "favorite player."
    After he graded from KSS I was surprised to get an email from Dylan asking me if I would be willing to meet with him to discuss opportunities to play basketball in college. Because of who Dylan was, I was more than happy to meet with him and help him in any way I could.
    Dylan had an impact on my life and I know I am one story amongst many others. He will be missed but his impact on the lives of others will be long lasting.
    As you mourn the loss of Dylan my prayer for you will be for comfort (Matt 5:4) and for a peace that passes all understanding. (Phil 4:7)

    Ruth, Donovan, Rachel and Nathan, we are all shocked and saddened hearing the news about Dylan's passing. There are no words that can comfort at this time. We have all been thinking of him and you as a family since hearing the news last Friday. Remembering him brings only thoughts of big smiles, sharp humour and warmth of character. I had the pleasure of being one of Dylan's many basketball coaches over the years and Connor as his team mate - you could only hold Dylan as an example of what every coach or team mate wanted on his team. Selfless, attentive, hard-working, funny, fun to be around and the list goes on. He touched everyone he met with these qualities on a daily basis. It is these qualities that we all can share each day as we continue to have him in our thoughts.
    Rob, Rena, Connor and Reanne Mitchell.

    Dear Donovan, Ruth, Nathan and Rachel, words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel at the tragic loss of your son/brother, Dylan. My heart goes out to you all in your time of sorrow. May God give you comfort and strength to see you through this very sad time.
    Much love, Tessa Gopaul, Trinidad and Tobago.

    Donovan, Ruth, Rachel, and Nathan. We know words cannot give true comfort and cannot express how sad we are for your loss. Our family sends our prayers, thoughts, and all of our love to everyone. Dylan was a special young man and I feel so fortunate our family had the opportunity to be a small part of his life through basketball. He was and is an inspiration to all of us. He always had a smile, always gave 110%, and was always so full of life. It is with great heartache that we say we are so very sorry for your loss, but know his moments with us will always be in our hearts. He will look over us and his spirit will be forever be ingrained in us.

    I'm shocked to read this news. I remember seeing Dylan on the various times I came over, sharing stories of our boys, as my sons name is Dillon. I believe they played soccer as well. Such a loss. Our thoughts are with you Donovan, Ruth and Carl.
