I am so sorry for your loss. Tyler was one of my Soldiers while stationed in Korea. He was a hard worker and loved by many. He will be sadly missed by many.

Until Valhalla

To my baby brother,
I'm sorry I didn't know the pain you felt inside. I wish I had been there for you more often. I was so very proud of you, and I love you more than words could ever say. Your nieces Ivy and Mercdese, loved you. Even though they didn't get to spend much time with you, they spoke about you quiet often. I wish I could have stopped this from happening, unfortunately everyone always gets caught up in their own lives that we forget to reach out. I'm sorry baby bro, I failed you. I will miss you always and love you till my last breathe.

The toilet paper debacle

Shared by Runeas Eldridge on April 21, 2021
A few years ago, while Tyler was still in highschool, my mom accidentally bought one ply toilet paper. This was a major mistake. She rectified this by buying three ply at Costco, but forgot to tell us this news. Poor Tyler went to use the restroom and found that there was no longer any toilet paper in our bathroom, so he asked me to get him some. Since I didn't have any clue we had the good stuff, I innocently passed him the shitty shit sheets, as he called them. Just after he used them, Mom calls out that we have the good ones in her bedroom. Tyler stuck his head out of the bathroom door with the most disgusted face I had ever seen and exclaimed, "You LIED to me! Now my ass is on FIRE!"
  We all laughed so hard we about wet ourselves. He was so disgruntled. I miss you Tyler, and all the laughs we could have had. I love you shield-brother.
