In Loving Memory of
TYLER MAXWELL THARPE


My little Tyler was such a caring and dear child. He would go to all extents to make someone smile. He was amazing and so grown for his age. He once told his mother that she was a good woman, not a good momma, but a good woman. He was holding a strawberry the size of a small apple in his hand and when she asked him why he simply replied, "Because you bought me these strawberries." In his short life he went camping among other things that a child of his age normally would not have been able to do. He kept beautiful hair cut to the base of his neck and loved wearing it in a pony tail but it would give him a horrible head ache to do so. He had a way with people. He would be sent to his room to play. A few minutes later he would come out with something so witty to tell us that we would burst into laughter and it would take us up to an hour to realize he was supposed to be in his room! He loved everyone and everything and had this amazing charm for a child of his age. I loved spending time with little Tyler. I feel guilty though. The night before he died was the night of my fifteenth birthday party. All I wanted was for my sister and nephews to hurry up and leave so that I could have time with my friends. If only I had known that it was the last time I would ever see him I would have made so much more out of that night. Tyler was the only one who sang happy birthday to me... The next morning I was awakened with the news. My Tyler was dead, gone forever, drowned in a pond behind the house he was visiting at. This was only the beginning of the hell I would experience in the future because of his death.

TYLER, YOU ARE MY BABY AND ALWAYS WILL BE!
I LOVE AND MISS YOU FOREVER!
LOVE,
AUNT LADYBUG
