It’s surreal that I have to say goodbye to my nephew. He truly was a fun and loving person. I have many wonderful memories from watching Tyler grow up. Many days were spent watching him play baseball, wrestle, having sleepovers at my house, swimming, participating in school activities, etc.... I love him with all my heart and will now have another angel watching over me! Fly high and RIH Tyler! You are in God’s hands!
