I cant believe this happened. I had to look this up after last nights conversation of pain. I was shocked to learn of this passing even 4 years ago. I speak often of this tragedy. I just cant imagine losing a beautiful child. But I understand tremendous amount of pain. I am so sorry for your loss and the pain you feel.

Michelle and family,

A Healing Prayer to St. Jude

Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, I place myself in your care. Pray for me; help me remember that I am not alone in my struggles. Please join me in asking God to send me hope in my sorrow, courage in my fear, and healing in the midst of my challenges. Please ask our loving God to fill me with the grace to accept whatever my life holds and to strengthen my faith in His healing power. Thank you St. Jude, for the promise of hope you hold to all who believe, and inspire me to give this gift of hope to others. Amen.

I love you Michelle. I hope this brings comfort to you and your family. It did me during my life struggles.

Richard and Pam (and all of the Schultz family). So very heavy hearted in hearing the news tonight at church about Tyler. I'm very sorry that I wasn't there to be with you at his homegoing services. He was such a good kid and I know a wonderful young man. Praying God's strength, comfort and mercy to you all during this time. In Christian Love, your sister in Christ, Lynne

Tyler was one of my best friends. One of the few people in the world I knew I could go talk to about anything. He was so wise beyond his years, such a clever and creative person, and could talk about things in such a way that he could make your jaw drop. Such a powerful person, with so much life left to live, it pains me that I will never get to see him again. It's been over 2 years since I've seen him, but we've actively kept contact and shared music, books, and film with each other. There are things about him that have helped me shape who I am today, and for that I will never forget him. R.I.P Tyler, you have all the answers now and I've got to admit I'm kind of jealous. Love you buddy, I will always miss you.

I'm so very sorry for the unexpected loss of your son Tyler. He was a best friend to my son Jordan and he would take the time out to play basketball with my youngest son Cameron. He will be missed greatly at our house. It's just so hard to believe that he's gone. My thoughts and prayers will be with you through this difficult time. Please let Jordan know if we can do anything for you.

Richard, Pam and all of the family. I am so sorry. Unexpected is so very hard. My family and I have you all in our prayers and thoughts. Tyler was a big help to me during my times of illness, he would always come in to talk to me and check on me after moving the lawn. He smile, boyish laughs, hugs and funny humor were a light. He will be missed.
