  1. Even though its more than a year later and I just found out about this, it still tears me apart to see him gone. Sage just recently moved to an assisted living apartment complex and whilst moving she would only let my mother, her sister, carry Dalton’s urn because she knew that she would be careful with it… I am Dalton’s cousin, I had spent quite a lot of time with him and his sisters. I would always blame stolen or broken things on him when i was little just because his sisters said it and I didn’t know any better. I now know that its not acceptable anymore… After Dalton’s death, i found one of his under armor shirts and started bawling. I don’t even know what came over me. I just miss him so much…
