We will always remember and cherish the moments that we watched him playing outside with family or other children; and watching him grow to become a wonderful and loving young child. Although it’s been years since we were neighbors we will never forget your wonderful and loving family; and just recently learned about Dalton’s passing. We know that nothing can ever replace this dear and special child; but trust that your faith, love, and fond memories will help in times of sorrow. Deepest Sympathy Harold, Gayle, Willie, and Harold “JR” Williams
