Tyler's Funeral and Memorial Plaque

Tyler was born on August 12th, 1995 and left our world on July 17th, 2017.

In recent years he struggled with many emotional, psychological and physical challenges. He was a very strong man, not just due to his size, but due to his will. Extremely bull headed and stubborn at times, but also caring and compassionate when the time was right. His inner turmoil was a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. He was never quite able to find his true calling or path in life. Although he searched endlessly. Every time he took a step forward he would get knocked back two steps. For many years this was the case. He fought long and hard to fight what was holding him back and keeping him down. Battle wears you down. At first you get right back up and keep fighting, but eventually, as you become weary you get exhausted. You try to keep your head high, but it becomes harder and harder. Tyler was exhausted. He just wanted peace. He wanted to rest. He wanted to sit back and have the chance to put all of his challenges behind him. Well now he is at peace. He has found his rest. The fight is over and he can put everything behind him.

He has been reunited with other loved ones that left before him. Tyler is happy now. I am 100% certain of that.

I was never blessed with lots of money but what I was blessed with was a loving family that would do anything for one another. I would rather have a strong, loving family any day over all the money in the world. I am asking for help to allow our family to put him to rest properly. We don't have extra money laying around. No one puts money aside to pay for a child's funeral.

I am hoping that by the kindness of family, friends and strangers, we will be able to put him to rest properly. Anyone that has lost a loved one knows the cost of funerals is high. This unexpected loss has put a huge financial strain on us and any dollar that anyone donates, will go a long way to help us. Thank you.

His service will be at Huff and Lakjer Funeral home on July 24th, 2017 at 10am. They are a wonderful group of people and have really helped us through this process.
