I Read Every Word You Type

1264 Tom Kelley sent this in some time ago from his living room in Boston, MA, USA using the SOTM Flickr group. He wrote: “Dylan was always there for me when I needed him. He was there for me even when I didn't need him. He was the type of person that I could call at 4 in the morning with a problem, and he'd talk me through it. (...and that actually happened several times.)

“A true best friend.

“He died about a year and a half ago. I was in Italy at the time, so I couldn't even make it to the funeral. I still cry sometimes, and not a day goes by when I don't miss him.

“This photo: Because he lived back at home, and I was away at college most of the year, our friendship played out mainly on the phone and online.

“Anyway, I kept a Livejournal, and on one of my more lengthy entries, I ended by mentioning how long the entry was, saying that I'd be surprised if anyone would actually take the time to read it.

“This was his reply.

“I miss you Dylan...”
