    Dear Stephanie.
    I am so sorry for the loss that you and your family have been given. I know he meant the world to all of you. I remember you telling stories about him as we worked. You are a wonderful person and I know God is with him now. God’s love is not just for you and the family right now but, with him in the father’s kingdom. Love and condolences with all of you. Sorry to not be there today but I have strep throat and didn’t want to share it with anyone.
    Love you always,
    Tamara

    Stefanie and Chris – My heart goes out to you. I can’t begin to imagine the heartache you are feeling right now. I will always fondly remember Ty as a part of the soccer family that we were with for so many years; both with Henry Mpagi and then later with Alex Tomlinson. I pray that you feel God wrap his arms around you and comfort you in this time of such great loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
