  3. i miss you dylan so very much. if we ever owed each other something whether it was a cookie or a dollar, instead all you wanted from me was a kiss. eventually it became a kiss for a dollar, well lets say you owe me a lot of money. you were an amazing young man youmade me very happy and knew how to make me laugh. just one more kiss is all i want from you now. i love you dylan.

  4. I remember Dylan coming down for the summer. We got to chill out by ourselves at Wendy’s where we talked about silly little things. I feel blessed looking back at that moment in time for the small moment we could love and bond. I miss you Dylan and always will.

  5. To Dylan’s Family,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your son, brother, grandson, uncle, cousin and friend.
    I did not know Dylan but his picture reminds me of my own son who is a freshman there at CSU as well. my son, Justin, told me the day this happened.
    My heart broke for you even though I did not know you.
    And then i read the memorial, my son also is a lifeguard, a former high school wrestler, ran distance in track. sports a baseball cap in most of his pictures.
    also born in 1992…the similarities, just from reading go on and on…
    I wish the two could have met and been friends and supported each other…my son is still battling depression/anxiety…
    I have babbled enough.
    I just stare at your son’s photo and i Know him as my son. very similar in looks.
    I am so so so sorry again. My heart sends you love and prayers go out for some peace.

  6. I will forever remember my students from Freed MS. My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Dylan. He was a wonderful young man who could light up a room with his smile. He will be deeply missed by all of us.

  7. To Dylan’s friends and family, I am truly sorry for your loss. I was the student photographer at Centennial high during his freshman and sophomore years, and I cannot remember a time when he wasn’t smiling. He always wanted to be in front of the camera, making others laugh and smile along. People were drawn to his personality and enthusiasm- he was always surrounded by friends. May the Lord comfort all saddened hearts, and may he always be remembered with a smile.

  8. It was heartbreaking to learn of Dylan’s passing. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with Dylan’s family and friends. Dylan was a student in my class at Centennial, and I remember him as an energetic, friendly, outgoing young man. I share your grief: no parent should have to bury a child.
    ~ With deep and heartfelt sympathy to Dylan’s family and friends in this time of loss

  9. Dylan was a great friend to me. He taught me to chase my dreams. He taught me to not care what other people thought of me. His smile always brighten up practice at City Park. I will miss him so much.

  10. I’m so sorry for your loss…close to my heart, as I lost a grandson, 20 years old, in August. Most dear to me are the prayers that comforted me and strengthened me. Though I don’t know you, you are and will be in my prayers daily.

    The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. – Psalm 18:2

  11. If only there was one more day to laugh and talk how we use too. Dylan was a great guy and was touched by so many! I cant believe your gone just last week we were laughing and you were writing on my car window. I will never forget you. The Solorio family you are in mine and my familys prayers! Rest in peace Dylan Solorio<3

  12. I am praying for comfort for all of Dylan’s family and friends.

    Psalm 9:9
    The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

  13. Friends and Family of Dylan in Chicago who can’t make it out to Pueblo.. Bianca and I will be at the 8 am Mass tomorrow (Friday) at Holy Name Cathedral praying for Dylan and the rest of the Solorio Family. Dylan loved Chicago and it was his dream to move here someday.

  14. Dylan was more than a friend to me, he was a brother. We shared many great memories together. To all his friends and family, my condolences go out to all of you.

  15. My heart truly goes out to Dylan, his family and loved ones. I’m truly sorry that you’re experiencing a loss of a child, friend, and loved one. Grief and loss is an overwhelming feeling when it occurs from someone you love so much, as I too have experienced the same pain. Reach out, comfort, and support one another as well as allow professionals to help with the grief and pain. Please, please know…there is no limit of time for grief…there is no such thing as expecting yourself to just “get over it” after a year or two has gone by. The feelings from grief and loss are initially overwhelming and may continue for some time. Please be kind to yourselves with this process and each other especially when unanswered questions may exist. I pray you all may eventually find peace and comfort in your heart. God Bless.

  16. I did not personally know Dylan but he was a friend to my brother. I just want to let you know I am very sad for the family. it makes me sad to know this happened and i wish i had the chance to meet him to help out. I’m so very sorry for your loss and it breaks my heart! hope he knows many people love him and hope he’s in a better place. thoughts and love Vela

  17. I am so very sorry for the loss of your Dylan. I am a student at CSU-P, and while I never knew him, I feel a grief for your loss as a parent of a son the same age. It’s just not right and I cannot express the sadness I feel for what you are having to endure. I am so sorry…

  18. Even though I did not know him I share this text from the bible. I know he will be remembered and I am sorry for your loss.
    Psalm 23

    A psalm of David.
    1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
    he leads me beside quiet waters,
    3 he refreshes my soul.
    He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
    4 Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
    I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

    5 You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
    You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
    6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
    and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
    forever.

  19. When I worked at Freed,I will never forget the boy who walked up and down the halls with a personality bigger than life which attracted everyone to him. The bell rings and here comes you and all your friends saying “Ms. Trish we need a pass to class” and I could not refuse you all for some reason. I enjoyed the track meets and just the joy of knowing you. I will always have you in my prayers and I will never forget you. Dillon you have defintly left a mark in my life.
    always, Ms. Trish

  20. Dylan, wish we could have been closer, to get to know each other, but you were always near my heart. you will be missed. love you, Great Aunt Kaye

  21. I talked with Dylan for 5 hours about life and how to make things better. He seemed to be very motivated in what he wanted out of life and knew he was young to learn from mistakes. It saddens me to see that our talk did not come to be. My condolences go out to his family, and I will miss him.

  22. To the Solorio family. My heart breaks for the pain you are going through. I pray for you all that you can find peace in your hearts. Thoughts and prayers to all his friends and family. I did not know your son but from the post, and positive things I have heard of him, he was an amazing young man and you should be proud to say he is your son.

  23. I’m a student at CSU-P and although I did not know Dylan I have known people who have committed suicide. My condolences and I will continue to pray for Dylan and his family during this hard time.

  24. i can’t believe you are gone. wish we could have had more memories together. you are truly missed. love you cousin

  25. May God be with you all. Dylan touched many lifes and leaves behind many great friends that will always carry his beautiful smile in their hearts. God Rest your soul Dylan.
