    I didn’t know Dylan well but he was always so kind to me at the Portland Zine Symposium, and always so generous with donations for my library. My most sincere condolences to his family and friends.

    Just wanted to say Thanks to all of my cousins friends for helping him and Emily during his illness and after his death. I sometimes just need to say something when I’m thinking of him and what better way than to say it here. Thank you for being there for him and Emily. Dylan was a special person, even when he was little. He had great parents and was so lucky to be able to travel the world w/ them. I think of him daily. He will be missed. Later……… Karen Trochta, his cousin from Texas.
