We lived in our own little bubble. We didn't need anyone else. The neighborhood is awful and we were looking to move by October to a safer space. Tyler and the kids have been the center of my universe for the past 5 years. Tyler passed away March 20th 2023. I had gone to put my son down for a nap and walked over to Tyler my fiancée to check in on him since he hadn't been feeling great. He was 3 months sober. If you knew him you knew what a big deal this is since he only drank 99proof all day long. The blanket was on the floor and he had two fans running so the coldness of his skin didn't seem strange. Only after the 3rd pat on his back and repeating his name to no prevail I realized something was very wrong. I was too late to do anything but while on the phone with 911 I rolled him on his back and attempted CPR.. I am trained.. but i couldn't do compressions, his hands were frozen to his chest. This man I am still so in love with, The father or my 15month old son, stepfather to my daughter... he is gone!!! I will never feel his arms hold me, I will never be surprised by another sneaky kiss, I will never hear him say my name or the full hearted laugh we shared. He will never dance to make me smile on my low days, he won't be able to teach my son to play football as he did in college. We never made it down the aisle together. I DO wear you ashes close to my heart I DO Still tell you out loud I love you every day I DO have plans to share your last name as our son does I DO wish you were with me every breath I take.
