Dear Rob and Rhonda;

Uma and I are devastated. Words cannot express our sorrow.
Over the years the times I got to meet Tyler were a pleasure. He had a pleasant smile and was easy to talk to. It was so nice to learn of his love and gift for music. I am sure he is playing his guitar and humming tunes!
We love you both and the children. Please let us know if we can help.

Rajiv and Uma
