Dennie, Paula and Aly , may you take comfort in the memories and how much people loved Dalton. I have heard he made so many people smile just by being with them. Megan is gonna miss his tradition of meeting her and bringing her subway cookies every wednesday so they can talk, wednesday's will never be the same without him . She really misses him and I know the rest of us will also. We'll be praying for you .

Dear Skeens family,

My husband and I am so sorry for your loss.  We have never met but have been neighbors for the past few years.  May God bring you comfort during this very difficult time and know you are in the prayers of your neighbors who live on Main Street.

Although it's been many years since I've seen Dalton, I still remember that little dude like it was yesterday. I couldn't even pretend to imagine what you guys are going through right now. The loss of any family member is tragic, but for a parent to have lost a child is unfathomable to me. You guys are a strong family and will eventually get through this and understand that instead of YOU having to look over Dalton and keep him safe everyday, HE'S the one that's looking over you now and making sure that you're safe. You can rest assured that he'll be in the hearts of any and everybody who ever knew him.

To the Skeens family, Althouigh I did not meet you personally, I felt the need to let you know that many people are praying for you in the loss of your son. From what I have heard and read, Dalton must have been a joy to you. He is in God's hands now, and you are in my prayers.

Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. There are really no words to say to take the hurt away, but I hope knowing so many others are praying for you, thinking of you, and hurting with you, will help in some small way.  Lean on God and let him guide and sometimes carry you through this difficult time... God Bless you.

We''re thinking of you  and your family and our prayers are with you.

Craig and Karen Jordan Feb 25 2011 12:00 AM

We are so sorry for your loss.   Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We never knew Dalton, but if he was in any way like his Dad, he was a great kid.
