"…for me and Terry and Micah a wonderful and amazing gift of love and beauty was taken on the night of August the 31st 2006. Today I pray for justice for my son and I also pray for the daily strength to deal with the loss of such an amazing boy. Tyler made up my heart and soul and without him I feel lost..."
