In sixteen short years, Tyler’s kindness and fun-loving spirit have made an incredible impact on our community and beyond. He has left many “gifts”, but his mama and I treasure the text he sent her just before the accident. It has helped carry us through this and we want to share in hopes that it helps carry you, too.
Fwd: Hey mom just wanna give you an update. I’m really having a great time here and Schuyler’s grandparents love me and think I’m a really nice, laid back, and responsible kid (props to you?) me and Schuyler saw a shark swim next to us yesterday which was awesome yet extremely scary. It’s literally like you wake up at grandmas house here cause everybody’s up and breakfast is cooking and everyone sits together like us and just eats and has really cool conversations. Schuyler’s mom made this dip that is literally heaven and I’m getting the recipe so we can have it( it’s heaven dip) the beaches are saltier than Peter chens soup but that’s ok cause they have the best waves to body surf in. I haven’t found any seaglass yet but I’ll find some eventually for ya. I have been super good at brushing my teeth(surprisingly) and have been showering like once a day. I love you and want you to know that I’m safe and are having a blast!
