There will never be another soul as vibrant as yours. The catchy sayings were just one of the awesome things that made you who you were. But your drive... your passion... your heart... you were unconditionally amazing. I will never for get that spunk. My kids will never forget you and the energy you would always bring. I am so happy you gained your wings. But our human hearts will mourn you! And we will cry some bitter sweet tears, but I know we will meet again. And I will be expecting you to have everyone in Heaven just as hype as you had us here on earth! Until we meet again my friend. Rest easy and fly high! Love, Tiffany Byrd and family

Forty-One (41) chapters of life I've been granted, before you left this earth I never had one regret! Though you were present for many of those chapters; you were only featured in one! Though it's not promised how many I have left I promise you I'm dedicating them all to your memory. You fought well Ty, this rest you've received (though it's killing us all) you deserved the peace. Rest well babe, until we meet again. G.F.P.

This beautiful soul pushed me kicking and screaming into the cheer mom life and I will never be able to thank him enough. So many memories we shared, thousands of laughs and millions of tears. Thank you Ty for everything you did for me and Emilie. Our hearts are broken beyond measure but I know heaven is dancing in glorious steps right now. Much love my brother, much love.

Ty was such an influence in my life. He motivated me in everything I did, and pushed me to be the best athlete possible. Heaven gained a bright personality with him.
