Our son, Tyler, took his last breath last Friday, and with that breath, received full healing from the cancer he fought for almost a full year. Our hearts grieve that he’s not here to hug, tickle, and have in our presence, and yet we are covered in the peace that passes understanding and deep comfort knowing he’s healed and wholly restored. God chose to give him a forever healing. We could not be more proud of Tyler and the way his life reflected joy, compassion, courage, gratitude, open-handed living, and faith in a God who loves him even more than we do. Because of our firm foundation of faith, we walk in victory and we walk in hope. We know that Friday was a heavy “see you later,” and not a “goodbye.”
We will celebrate his life this Friday, October 14th, and invite you to join us. While Tyler was given a sprint and not a marathon, his life had a profound impact on many, many lives. He leaves us with a legacy that speaks to both older and younger generations.
