  14. Tys I still don’t want to believe it mate. I’m so thankful I have so many memories with you. The late nights we had, all the skatepark trips from our younger days, and that cheeky smile when we gave each other banter when you were up home. Just some of the things I’m never going to forget. Rest easy up there Tyson. Finally back with poppy.

    Love always Jack, Rommi, Charlee and McKenna

  18. Tyson, im still in shock, you’ll never be forgotten.

    Your goofy laugh, contagious smile, your way to make everyone else feel good, will forever be held close to so many people.
    You had such a massive positive impact in my life, my daughters life, and you taught me what a true friend is and you will always be that one true friend no matter how far you are away now.
    I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for me, my daughter and lil bubs growing in my belly, I wish you could have stuck around and we could have all done the things we planned.

    I’ll do what you always told me, be strong.

    💫 My Detective Drayton 💫

    Forever in our hearts & thoughts,
    We love you so much.
    Fly high my beautiful angel.

    I’m so mad at you 🥺
    I dunno how you thought this would be easier for everyone , because it’s the hardest , I wish you knew just how loved you were 🕊 .
    Life is moving forward, another day comes n goes but I still feel like I’m standing in one spot waiting for you to come and say a smart arse comment to me, BUT you don’t.
    Now the one day of the year I loved the most is coming up, an every year is say to you it’s all about me bitch, this day is mine . you’d laugh, have a cheeky evil look at me n say right what’s the plan 😂
    BUT now I want it to be over already.

    Love Sammy x
