My condolences go out to Tyler’s family, friends & many loved ones. Tyler was a sweet, charismatic, funny, handsome & extremely caring young man. Tyler reached out to me after I lost my son, Drey, also 24 yrs old, whom he was childhood friends with. Which is how I got the privilege of getting to know Tyler a little more, especially his extreme care & ❤ for others. There are no words to say at this time that’ll even ease this pain for the Kosler family. My heart breaks for you all & I wish I could lift just a little of your pain. Sincerely Tasha
