Never in my wildest dreams, could I imagine that you would leave us. Gone too soon. We shared many memories, laughs and tears. I always enjoyed your company, always sad when you left me. I love you son and I’m always going to miss that one last hug. Love in memory for all of us who truly loved you Tyler.
