    Thank you for being my buddy when no one else would. I’m happy we knew each other, and I hope we can talk about our favorite games again someday.

    So sorry for the loss of your son, Tyler. From watching his service from here in Maine, he must have been a fine son. I hope knowing you have so many relatives in Omaha that care about you and are there for you help in the difficult days ahead. I wish I had known Tyler. Love and prayer to you, Jon and Helen
