Love for the Carpenters

Those of us that know Dylan Carpenter have watched this incredible human being grow from a kid who was always mature beyond his years to the teenager he is now. His keen sense of mischief, strong wit and a sly smile have always been trademarks of his very big personality. One who knows him cannot blame this on the teenage years.  He loves a good challenge and is a fierce competitor whether he is gaming, playing cards or wagering on a bet.  When presented with the choice of a cell phone or a pet pig, he chose the pig!  For those of you who have come to know Dylan in the last couple of years, you also know how hard it has been for him and his family. Despite it all he has taught us all what strength and courage means and continues to do so.
