Yesterday I attended a park dedication. It was a park in memory of Tyler. His family and friends gathered together on what would have been his 25th birthday to see the permanent structure that was created by his neighbors in his honour. I thought it would be depressing and sad, but, although there were sad moments to be sure, the event was far from depressing. It was comforting, even uplifting to stand with so many people who love him, who miss him too. The event reminded me so much of Ty, we launched rockets, watched fireworks laughed and remembered this bright light that was gone too soon. It reminded me of this song, and it was nice to know Ty could still be depended on to make people laugh.
