Kendal Hansen on February 13th, 2015 - 1:41 am said:
I wasn't very close with Tyler but we were friends when he was a Santa Fe for freshman year. He sat behind me in history which I had no interest in so instead we talked about fishing off little Gasparilla island. My family had a house down there too. He told me he would come by sometime when we were both down there to "show me how snook fishing was really done". I grew up fishing so I was like "oh please I already know how." So one time when we were down there he pulled up to our dock at night to go snook fishing with my dad and I. I had told my dad that Tyler was supposedly a pro. I am literally not exaggerating when I saw he hooked an enormous snook on the first cast and landed it on the dock. My dad just looked speechless, clearly impressed by this 15 year old kid who was already a pro. I am sure you know already how many lives Tyler has touched but I just wanted to share a positive memory. I am praying for you all in this difficult time. Warmly, Kendal Hansen

Kim Rose '77 on February 12th, 2015 - 7:33 pm said:

Dear Bobby and Debbie: My heart aches for the pain and agony that you are feeling with the loss of your dear son. Although I did not know Tyler or the other members of your family, I do know and care for Bobby, and offer my sincere condolences to you all. Nothing can be said or done to erase the hurt that has been etched in your hearts, but I offer the belief that, sooner or later, The Good Lord will turns things around for you and bring your peace. There is a great gospel called, "Turning Around for Me". When you are alone in the quiet and you question if you can make it, listen to this gospel and find some peace.

I didn't know Tyler long but in the short time I did I really liked this young man cause he showed a genuine kindness and respect to me ( even when I was his terrible partner playing corn hole) man he was awesome at it. He was a great friend to my son Aaron Brown and to all his friends. It truly was and is a brotherhood they all shared, and it saddens me he is gone, and that I only got a little bit of fun and time to really know him. May God let him sit on the edge of the clouds and with that big smile watch his little girl grow up.

Johanna was a wonderful woman, full of love and kindness. She brought my Dad communion every Tuesday at Carpenters. She also brought him communion, prior to this, when he lived at Savannah Court. Over the years she became a friend to both of us. Dad and I always looked forward to her visits. I was shocked when I got the news of her passing. She will certainly be missed by us, and by everyone whose lives she touched. May God's rewards to her be many for her faithful service in His name. God Bless You All at this time of grief and as you move forward with your lives. She will be dearly missed, and will always be in my prayers.

Mark Dierling on January 26th, 2015 - 1:54 pm said:
I have so many fond memories of Aunt Bea. From the days of going to see her and Margaret at their house in Bloomington to the countless times spent at the lake. I always looked forward to spending time at the resort where Bea always made sure we got some work done before the fun could start. She taught me alot about the rewards of working hard and I will miss her dearly. While I haven't been able to see her much in the last many years, I've thought about her often and always looked forward to the occasional letter from her detailing what her and Margaret had been up to. My dad dearly loved his big sister and as an adult I fully understand why. She was a loving person who kick then give you a little kick in the pants if that is what was needed. I will never forget her. Mark
