When I met Tyler and his family on my mission for the church. Tyler and his family were very welcoming and made life as a missionary away from family for two years easy.
After my mission the Chesnut’s visited me in slc Utah couple years after my mission. Nothing has changed, Tyler and his sibling loved each other and loved to mess around too (As family should). You can tell from his social media that he was someone that people loved to be around and had a smile that made everyone smile.
Mu heart goes out to Darwin and Bridget as well as his twin sibling Mathew and Mackenzie! God be with y’all.
Til we meet again.
