Just today before the vigil I went to Zero’s subs on Lauderdale. As I paid for my sandwich a worker there told me “I heard about the boy at your school that passed, and I’m really sorry for your loss. Were you very close with him?” Sadly, I answered, “No I never got the chance to meet him but I sure know who he was.” The cashier proceeded to tell me “He came in here all the time, it’s such a shame.” This really hit me. The fact that Tyler could make an impression on someone who just made sandwiches for him amazed me. His presence was remembered everywhere he went.
