He drew near to the God he loved
Was still and silent
God spoke to him of the joy
Gave him a passion to share

To observe Ty’s life was like watching a beautiful, brilliant shooting star. He was in perpetual unfettered motion. Even when standing still, his eyes sparkled. His smile was so infectious that it drew you into his orbit. At Coker Creek, it was such great fun to watch him connect with Adair or to play with Keller and Paden. I loved how Ty worshiped with abandon. He lived and worshiped full-out!
I think you brought God glory, Ty. Just know that you leave us wanting more – just like a beautiful, brilliant shooting star …
From Ty’s Dad:
Ty keeps comforting me from heaven with memories and even his words. “God is here. His presence is evident. Take a look around you: what do you see?” Reading these words makes heaven seem a little closer.
It is hard for me to imagine trying to sincerely believe that this world and everything in it is all that there is … There is no way that this just happened by chance. A greater power, obvious to me, definitely had a hand in creating all of this. One of the things I do not understand is how someone could believe differently. To think that something as fragile yet as powerful and complicated as the brain was not crafted carefully by a higher power is crazy. It does not make sense to me. God is here. His presence is evident. Take a look around you: what do you see? All the way from the intricateness of a cell all the way to the expansiveness of the universe, He is obviously involved.
