Our Beloved Tyler's Memorial

I can't put into words this unbearable pain I am feeling but I can say what I said to my Sister, she looked so beautiful Tuesday night that I could not leave her side, her family, friends, teachers, basketball coach, school nurse, boss, co workers, church family & our Pastor...her love touched so many that from 4:00 to 9:00 that line never moved and I pray she saw that and felt how loved she was. I know God has her in His arms and her purpose here was fulfilled because people spoke of her love, encouragement, kindness, smile, selflessness, giving ways, no matter day or night, when someone called she went, if they needed a safe haven she provided that, it was her God given gift. I don't understand why this happened now but I do believe things happen in God's time and I hope & have faith that one day He will reveal the answer to that one question...why my daughter, my best friend, my life? Thank you all again for so much love & support, I love you & please continue to pray for us.

On behalf of myself ,Tina Butler McKenna and the entire Family, We Thank you Sincerely for all the Love and Support shown at this diffuclt time for our family.

The family regretfully writes...a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a niece, a sister in law, an aunt, a girlfriend, a friend...our Tyler Tosca Marchese...a mere 20 years old but filled with feelings none of us were aware of...March 16, 2018 our family was hit with the most devastating unbearable news...our princess Tyler decided her time was over...no need to say more. The pain we feel is immense. Our now and every tomorrow is once again forever rewritten. We find ourselves crying after realizing we're in a space you will never grace again. If we had known we would have sat longer just to watch you, taken in moments longer so our memories would feel like life, hugged you longer so we could still feel your warmth and you can be devoured with our unconditional love, talked longer so your voice would become a natural echo, looked on until you were out of focus and told you how beautiful you were everyday so we could sketch you as if you were right beside us still - trying to stay grounded with perspective, you did everything we were proud of, ALWAYS!! How we wish our strength could have been yours - keeping hope in the little things and grateful for our family that loved you oh so much - you were and still are our princess, our first baby girl; shamefully you never realized just how important and needed you are. The unknown but now painfully present...same as it's always been, chaotically wonderful we thought and all of us...but these emotions tell us otherwise. We will forever miss everything about you...the significance in a day, an hour, a meal, those meaningless things typically...suddenly they carry such weight and in mere seconds the weight is overwhelming but we'll feel you most even in those moments. The donations are not a need but of assistance to lighten the stress brought upon without warning - in Jesus Name We Pray....Amen
