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...
