My Story

Dalton was an amazing little boy. With so much spirit and personality it was always hard for us to believe that so much could be happening in that little body of his. All he ever wanted was to to play, see new things, eat Oreos, but most of all he never passed up an opportunity to see fish or as he would say "ish". As the months passed in the hospital he became very attached to his favorite movie Finding Nemo, and then he discovered his passion for drawing fish anywhere and everywhere as long as he had a marker in hand. He certainly became his own little man in just a few short months.He knew what he liked and what he didn't like and he would let you know. He liked his worn out blue water shoes, his cargo shorts and either his Bronco jersey or his Elmo t-shirt, the rest of the clothes were just clothes. He didn't like radiology. Dalton taught us so much in the little time that he was here. No matter the obstacle he always had a smile on his face.There wasn't much that his blanket, a bottle and a little cuddling couldn't make better.He without a doubt is and forever will be our hero, but most of all our best friend. We will always remember what he has taught us and we will do our best to teach it to others. Because when the day comes that we see our sweet boy again we want him to be as proud of us as we are of him! We love you baby boy!
