TJ and Jennifer I am so sorry for your loss. I too lost a son a year ago this July 12th. It's like a piece of your heart is tore out of you. I want you to know that through Christ, your pain and heartbreak is a tad bit easier. I pray that God brings your entire family comfort at your time of need. Your son was my server a few times at Texas Roadhouse, I didn't know him well but he was great as my server. May GOD BLESS ALL Gary D Ashley, Sr

I remember Tyler as such a loving and very smart kid. I was his second grade teacher and I enjoyed him in my class. He was the perfect student any teacher would have loved to teach him. He was well behaved and a hard worker. I remember him telling his mom that he had migraines because I was so loud. Rest well Tyler. I am praying for your strength family! Love, Ms. Green
