I know deep down Tylor was someone you could depend on each day, he always had a smile on his face and he was someone who'd enjoy life, enjoyed being with his friends and family, and was looking forward to his future. I may have not know Tylor very long, but he was one of the best people to be around, my prayers go out to Tylor's family.

Dear Parents and Family, your heart must be broken in a million pieces with the death of your Son. Why do good people die ? Find the answer and more on jw.org. But in the mean time our Heavenly Father Jehovah by means of His kingdom (Matthew 6:10) has promise to swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 35:5,6) May this comfort you in the days ahead. I am so very sorry.

I want your family to know that I have been praying for your family since I heard the news of your son's passing. Please know there are countless people who you do not know standing with you in prayer and support. I pray the comforting presence of the Holy Spirit is near to you.
