We were very blessed to have Mr. Tyler as our daughter/granddaughter's teacher for two years and his wonderful impact at the school for 4 years. God's light shone brightly through him to influence many. We are grateful for our wonderful memories of him!! "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Phil.4:7 Our deepest sympathy to your family and community.

May God be very close to you as you go through the days ahead if you. May he give you peace. We also know he is at rest now, & that we will see him again. Sorry we cant make the funeral. God bless.
