Denise, my heart goes out to you and your family. I’m so very sorry for your loss of your son. Of course I didn’t know him personally but if he was anything like you, and I’m sure he was, then I know that he had a heart of gold.

Please, if there is anything you need, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You certainly have been there for me this past year.

I wanted to say how much I enjoyed hanging out with Tyler at my sister’s garage sale a few weeks back. He was so gentle and kind especially towards my mother Connie who suffers from mental illness. That is what I will always remember, his kindness and courage. He shared so much of himself that day. Tyler also drove with me to pick up my son Luke from a friend’s house. While waiting for me he met a little boy who loved basketball. Tyler was so encouraging and kind. I even told him he should be a big brother. He smiled and said..’you think?’. I only met Tyler once, but he had a profound impact on my life. My sincere condolences for your loss. He was an amazing soul.

To the family of Tyler we would like to send our condolences. We are sorry to hear of your loss and recognize how devastating losing some one is. Our family has always gained comfort from the resurrection hope that the Bible speaks of, as well as the prospect of no more death at all in the near future. Revelation 21:4 which talks of a beautiful future for mankind also says, ‘and death will be no more’. For more encouragement please go to http://www.jw.org.
Comfort and Peace,
The Olivers

To the Hieserman Family,
I am so saddened to hear about your loss. I had the pleasure of working many shifts with and getting to know Tyler while he was working at New Visions. Although we hadn’t seen or spoken with each other in years, he was such a kind soul and I am so happy that our paths crossed. May his legacy live on and may everyone find comfort in the memories they created with Tyler.

Condolence from Uncle Rob, Aunt Bean and Ris on October 3rd, 2014 10:24 am

you were such a beautiful person, inside and out. my heart will always remember the hugs you gave me, Rob and Rissy. Your hugs warmed our hearts and just showed how much you loved us. You were a big brother to Rissy and boy oh boy did she love that. She loved when you told her how much you loved her. I cant even explain how much we miss you. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think of you. You will live forever in our soul and our memories and we know you are our angel, looking down on us. As I look to the sky, I throw kisses to the Heavens above. We love you…..

Condolence from Chris on November 14th, 2019 7:26 am
