  1. You are already missed like crazy Tyler! I am so glad we got a second chance at living next door to one another! The first time was when you were a little kid; the second time was not so long ago, when I got to know you so much better due to the many heart to heart conversations we had in the yard between our houses. Lol I love you Tyler! We will see you again

  2. Oh Tyler…what a great kid you were..huge heart, loving soul, and a fun are definitely leaving a hole in lives you’ve touched..i know you’re not sure my tyler has found you and you boys are creating high and rest easy kiddo..and watch over you mama..

  3. As a mother who lost her son suddenly two years ago, I truly feel your heartbreak. Tyler worked with my son Austin at Coachmen and attended Austin’s funeral. It wasn’t until last summer that we actually met. Tyler came to my house with my grandson, his friend Josh. We become quick friends, with Tyler always offering to do anything he could to help his old friends mother. The best thing being the stories he told me about their friendship.
    Tyler would call to see if the pool was open, which it always was, and he and his friends would come over and there would be laughter, Man child laughter. I had missed that sound.
    Bless you and your memories this is a long journey. Cry with the ones you love it’s OK.

  4. When I think about Tyler what comes to mind is how he would do anything for anyone at anytime. He was one of the sweetest people on earth and will be missed by many. If you had the privilege to know Tyler then you were lucky. My heart is broken. Please keep his family in your prayers. Until we see you again!!!

    • Oh, my Tyler! Even though I’m your aunt, I always felt like a grandma to you. My heart breaks that I won’t get another earthly hug from you. Remember stuffing up my toilet witha toothbrush? (You were four) taking home the snake skin from the yard? Playing with shadow for days. I love you desperately and miss you. You leave a large hole in my heart. Praise the Lord that we will meet again. My first prayer on hearing about you is grandma Blanch finally got her arms around you. Till later, love aunt Tina uncle Ted andErik

  5. Missing “My Tyler” many memories. .like the couple of pounds of bird seed you tried flushing, the many toys and bikes we had to fish out of the pool..your tutu you had to wear when you were by the pool..the grape issue, you have to admit that was a pretty good one..the time you thought you could out run Gma when you wanted to go to a friend’s house I didn’t sure we’re surprised when I beat you to the gate..the camping trips and my favorite, fishing..remember that big pike you caught, I’m glad that guy showed up or we probably would have lost some fingers..I sure would rather have you here instead of the memories .I miss “My Tyler” . until I see you again..I love you

    • Or when he got that new wrench and screw driver set and took out all the screws in the sliding glass door for papa! .

  8. I never really got to know Tyler except for the time that we to Michigan to visit all of my cousins. He was probably around 15 or 16 then. We hung out at his Grandpa and Grandmas house.
