Today one of my good friends passed away. He was my partner at work someone that was with me almost everyday from 9 in the morning till 7 at night at rent a center. The talks we had in the truck and snap chats we would take while singing together. I will never ever for get those days. When my son coming in the store and saying where dilon. Dilon Messer was a big little brother that I never had my son loved him and I did. He would play with thaddeous when he would come in to work with little cars and dilon would hide them all under his shirt so thaddeous didn’t know where they were. Dilon I know now you aren’t in pain and your one of the best angles ever you will never be forgotten I am still so upset and can’t stop crying feels like a dream. Gone to soon. I remember coming in to work and when we had a lot of delivery’s I knew even though I didn’t want to deliver I knew it would be cool cause I was will you dilon. The long serious talks we had about this girl he loved so much and he would want advise from me made me feel so good to try and be able to help him to the funny silly talks we had. I could go on for days talking about the good times we had just know we will always miss and love you and you will never be forgotten. You are my big little brother for life. R.i.h and will see you again. Love ya man

Richie and Lydia,
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I cannot begin to imagine how you feel, but I hope you find comfort in all the out pouring of love for Dilon! My deepest sympathy!
Lydia—Prayers to you and your family. Hold on to all the wonderful memories that you shared with your son. R.I.P., Dilon.
To the family of Dilon–losing a loved one is hard but a child is harder. It leaves you with so many what ifs. My son died in 2007 so I know the grief you feel. Only time and the love of God helped me through my grief. We all grieve differently so this next year will be your individual journey of ups and downs. That is ok. Just remember God tells us He will never leave us or forsake us nor will He give us more than we can handle. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.
So sorry to hear about Dillon. I can’t imagine what you are going through. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
To the family, may god give you extra strength, as you and your family grieve! Prayers going up! RIH Dilon. Another angel got his wings!
Lola Sanchez Peters
