Today is a very sad day for my family. My Nehpew who was only 24 years old passed away this morning at 12:16am 6/28/2011. He was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy when he was very young, and the Drs. told my sister in law that his life expentancy would be 16 to 21. He was definately a fighter, he never gave up. even though he stopped walking when he was 8, he just kept going. He graduated from high school in 2005 and was smart as a whip. He really enjoyed working in "his" garage with his grandma and grandpa doing all kinds of wood works and building things. He was an amazing young man and will be missed.
Right now my thoughts and prayers are with my sister in law. Tyler was her life. she woke up everyday just for Tyler, every breath she took was just for Tyler, She is going to be lost. It doesn't matter what anyone tells you and how long you have to prepare for death, when its a child, any child there is just no being ready for that. Although he knew that some day he would walk again and today he got that wish. I may not be the most religious person, but Tyler and his mom and sister are. I just have to picture all his family that has passed before him waiting for him to walk through the gates to Heaven and applauding him that he finally made it and is no longer in pain, no longer needs the wheelchair, no longer needs the insulin, no longer needs the rods that were attached to his spine to keep him upright, no longer needs the oxygen mask. He is able to walk, run, jog.... all those little things that most of us take for granted everyday and never appreciate. being able to feed ourselves, bathe ourselves, drive our cars, brush our own teeth, hair, dress ourselves, even go to the bathroom...
