Tyler ( kid ) he was a very good friend couldn't have asked for a better one ever since I knowed you you would give the shirt off your back to some one in need. He was like a big brother to me if I called he would pick up no matter what time it was and If I needed help on anything he was right there! Praying for his family and his sweet babys and his wife love you all so much!

I honestly don't think anyone could forget your sweet spirit,laughter the way you cared so deeply. I remember when sissy was little the babies and I coming over to just hangout with you and valerie and you and her passing sissy back and forth and you playing with Kayden. You was so young. My heart goes out to the babies and Valerie. R.I.P kid... <3
