It is my honor to share some sweet memories of my Great Nephew, Ty Spradlin.
One day when Ty was a cute little toddler staying in Hideaway with his Mimi Linda, She brought him over to my house and I had so much fun playing all day with him ! We bounced balloons in the air for a long time entertaining and laughing at each other.
Another memory with Ty was at his Sister’s wedding reception a few years ago when I got to introduce My Husband Don to him for the first time. Later on that night we all had fun line dancing and acting silly together .
I didn’t realize at the time how special those memories are with our families and loved ones.
I was so happy to hear that Ty made a profession of his faith in front of his church as a teen. We all loved Ty and I look forward to seeing Ty again one day because I am going to meet Jesus my Savior, and Ty’s Savior and we just might just line dance Together again!
All my love to Ty’s sweet Mother and Dad too!
We will all miss you Ty!
Love ❤️
Aunt Sue

I was very impressed by Ty's courage and self-control the day I drove him to the ER. Blood was flowing from an earlier wound in his back. The towel he leaned against was soaked. His stitches had ruptured. His voice was a little bit strained, but he remained calm and even joked about it. I think he was about 15 yrs old, and didn't have a license. Otherwise, he probably would have driven himself! We pray for comfort, peace and strength for his family in the wake of this devastating tragedy. No family has loved a son and brother more.

You will always be my middle school sweetheart! ❤️ You had the best hugs and man where you funny! You hated me messing with your ears and calling you a hard head! My heart is hurting for your mom, dad and Tory. They have always been special to me even when we grew up and went our separate ways! I am so glad I saw you the last time you came home and you just bear hugged me! I will forever cherish that moment! 28 years old and your birthday is next month you not being here anymore doesn’t seem fair, but I know where you are and who you are with. Love you Michael Ty!

Ty, words can’t express how heavy my heart is. I still think this is all just one bad dream and I’ll wake up to know that you’re still here with us. We had so many great memories together, from playing little league together to acting crazy in middle school to playing side by side on the football fields together. I’m so proud to have called you my friend but more importantly, I’m proud to have called you my BROTHER! Until we meet again in the heavens above, Rest in Paradise Ty. Class of 09’ B-HIGH YOU KNOW!! #42

Ty was kind, polite, respectful, and just an all around great kid that turned into one helluva good man. My memories of him as a little boy running around the Reserve Center on Carson, the SO on WJB, and then at Tombstone Texas as a man that just enlisted are all great. God gained an angel who will be both loving and entertaining. The Pritchard Family loves you Ty. God speed.
