I went to church camp at ridgecrest with Tyler. He was a good friend to me when I didn't have many. I remember listening to music with him on the bus. Farewell my friend. You will be remembered fondly. I'm so sorry for the loss. You all will be in my prayers.

Dear Robin, I was shocked and deeply sadden to have read about your husband's passing. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and Tyler's family during these difficult times. My sincerest condolences and prayers for strength and comfort.

To my friend and the family that mourns deeply for an irreplaceable loss. All are in my prayers daily. I wonder why and don't have the answer but do know that many people share the loss. Many times Tyler and I joked, laughed and compared notes about family, dogs and current events as we worked on L6. Many times we both worked to get machines back up and running. We would wave and nod if we did not have time to speak. He shared his love of family, relatives and Cooter each and every week that we worked together. He is missed and I hope that his family will eventually find some comfort as time passes. One day we will get together again in My Father's House and we can pick up where we left off. May God's hand comfort those that miss you as I do.

Please accept my deepest sympathies. I passed Tyler in the hall at Colgate most mornings and was always greeted with that genuine smile. My prayers will continue to be with the family as you face the days ahead.

Tyler was such a great Colgate family member. He had some of the greatest ideas when it came to making improvements in his area and he was all about teamwork. His smile would light up the entire line. Thank you McMurtury family for sharing him with us. He will always be remembered.

I havent seen you in years Coot. But you were the first friend I made when I moved to Abbeville. You were always a joy to be around. I hate that we lost touch but your smile and memories will always be remembered.
