For Tyler, lost to suicide due to covid isolation

On Tuesday , July 21, 2020,  Bre and Dan Gleason's 10 year old son, Tyler died as a result of suicide due to covid isolation. He was life flighted to Tampa Childrens Hospital; however, his injuries were extensive, and he passed away at 5:37pm on July 21. My fiends are hurting so much and grieving so hard for Tyler. 
Tyler was kind, funny, talented, and so, so smart. He was a  brilliantly unique child. He loved to play the drums and he loved Van Morrison and the Big Bands. He loved to cook and dance. He loved geography and his favorite ice cream was lemon chiffon. He was a unique and very amazing child, and he was also the best little brother ever to Ray. Tyler was so loved and he will be so, so missed.

I have set up this fundraiser to help with the astronomical medical expenses Tyler's family is now facing. I know there's nothing we can do to ease their pain, but we can help with the medical bills. All money raised by this campaign will be used for Tyler’s final medical expenses. Even with insurance the bills may be very high. If we are successful at covering those expenses, extra money will also be used to cover therapy for the family. Please donate if you can, and share if you would. I know it will be very much appreciated .
