i remember one time at the harvard westlake semi-formal (my freshman year), so dillon was a junior. i ran into dylan outside of the restroom. I wasn’t having the best time, because i didnt really know anyone that i came with, and i couldn’t find my date. Dillon’s smile caught my attention and of course, he immidiately waved me down. I remember being so relieved to see some one i knew, but i was a little nervous becuase dillon was a cool older guy. He welcomed me with a friendly dhen hug and introduced me to his date and some of the poeple he was talking with. He just had a way of making everyone feel so safe around him…
it was different being around him and his friends, then the people i was with, because although i didnt know either group- dillon made everything so wonderfully comfortable and friendly
right before i left to go find the people i came with, i had told him i wasn’t going to the after party. He assured me it was going to be loads of fun and told me to try and convince my “friends” to go. I let him know that they werent planning on it and that i’d probably just see him MOnday at school…
As i was walking away, about 15 seconds after i said goodbye, dillon called my name and motioned for me to come back.
when i got there, he generously invited me to come with him and all his friends in their limo to the after party.
i just remember thinking, “i cant think of anyone else who would do that…”
i mean i wasn’t exactly some cool hot chick, i was a girl a few grades younger who wasn’t having that much fun, and dillon never ever passed up an opportunity to brighten some one’s day.
i just thought it was a classic dillon henry story and i know that so many people have similar stories that demonstrate his want for hapiness, his ability to comfort others wihtout even realizing it, and his generous heart that just constantly reaches out to everyone.
Admin reply: thanks camille…
I really needed to hear your story today
I am so depleted, it helps fill me up to hear about all the kind, giving choices he made
