Too young, far too young.
Twenty years. Not enough time. Not enough time for the world to revel in your charm, to chuckle at your stories, to blush at your bravado. You created a spark every time you walked into my classroom. We never knew what to expect, what morsel you'd share, what anecdote you'd unleash.
I can't even write at the moment for this--this untimely passing of your days on earth--have stripped me and so many others of sense, of understanding. For the past two hours, since I heard that you had just slipped away, I cannot stop the tears, cannot stop asking why.
Rest in peace, Tyler.
