True character is revealed during times of struggle. The true character of our little community has been glowing since the day we lost our larger than life son, Tyler. We have been both humbled and extremely impressed with the generosity, concern, and sincere willingness to help our family in any way possible; and you have helped us immensely.
We have been so fortunate to receive, in their own unique ways, the generosity and support of family, friends, businesses, organizations, the Marine Corp, and total strangers, who are strangers no more. The display of love, respect, and admiration from Tyler’s friends, both near and far, can only be described as incredibly comforting and deeply heart warming; it’s something we will never forget; to simply say “thank you” to everyone isn’t or never will be enough.
Just know that as you read this, you’ve forever touched our lives, provided us with strong support, and reinforced what we already knew about our county; we come together in times of struggle and our true character shines.
Doug, Becky, and Baylee Brewer
