1:19am and awake missing you...  / Joanne Cottam (mom)
Only one up and missing you....nights are hard for me Ty. I was in town today and drove by your apt.  wishing you were there, never did get to visit you long  there, you were always on the go...busy life you had. Told you to slow down and take a breath everyonce in a while.

 Your dad is going back to work, i don't think he is ready yet, but we need to survive.  He is so lost without you Ty.. so is your grandpa...I have never seen him this way before.  Maybe stop in and visit them from time to time.  Your sister fell apart today missing you. I still keep hoping this is all a bad dream and you will come back into the house with a big grin on your face an begging to use the truck.  Your truck still sits untouched in the garage. Makes me so sad, to think of the time an money you put into that, and how excited you were when you painted the engine orange.  I wish you were here to finish it and drive it once again... your life was cut short and it certainly was not fair.  you had so much to live for...you were making something out of your life an we were so proud of you...

why god had to take you? I will never know... I do know that not a minute goes by that I don't ache to hug you an talk to you again. I would give anything to have you back here.. My heart is beyond broken for you Tyler... My son I always wanted. You were perfect and I loved  to listen to you tell a story or a joke, i love to watch you play hockey an listen to you play guitar. I loved your smile.... Loved your hugs..and to look into those blue sparkling eyes... I miss you honey....miss you more then anyone will ever know.... love mom...xxxooo Close

Hey Tyler  / Maureen A. (Honorary Auntie )
Hi Tyler, I got to meet your whole family. I kick myself for not getting there sooner, so that I could meet you, too. You have a wonderful family, and it's clear why everyone loves you. Give your mom a sign, if you can. I'm living on the dime and penny sign we got while I was with your mom--I'm figuring that means you and Michael have met. I also got to meet Rachel and her mom. It's clear to me that what you and Rachel had was very, very special. She is a beautiful girl. Find some way to bring her comfort. Everyone is so lost without you. You had no idea the impact you made on your family, mom too!

I didnt know Tyler at all, i have never met any of his family. I actually came across this page by accident. But being a mom of 2 small kids, this page hit me really hard. I am so terribly sorry for all of you, Tyler seemed like an amazing person and i am so sorry that he left you all. He was definately loved alot, and there is no way that he didnt see that. I hope that time helps heal some of the pain that you feel and that you always remember the time that you had with him.
Please take care of each other. Close

Going home to heaven is easy, beautiful, no longer w/ pain, tears, sickness and all the things god's word promises.  even though your time was short here i know you rejoice.  the hard part is for those that will miss you and will always have an empty spot in their heart.  it is for those still here i lift up in prayer and extend my deepest sympathy to all of you.  i was not blessed to know you personally, but i remember you on our trips to canada when your mom or dad would bring you into the store while we stayed at the resort.  my husbands family have traveled to nester falls for many decades and i have come to visit for about 15 years.  Harvey, if your son is anything like you and your family at the resort, i know he was loved by anyone who crossed his path.   know that you and your family have made an impact in my family's life and we love you much.  Close

Sorry for your loss!  / Trina Bugley (was Darby) (friend of Joannes from years ago )

I was a friend of Joannes from years ago. to refresh her memory, she would send me clothes for my girls that didn't fit Kaitlin no more. I live in Oregon.  
She talked about the kids alot, thats how I recognized Tylers name.  I am sooo sorry for the loss, & sending condolences to the family.  I don't know what it's like to loose a son, but I did just loose my husband on Nov 16 this year (Patrick Bugley).  Its hard, but this site brings so much comfort seeing how much others cared about that person.  
Joanne-- if u want to get in touch again contact me thru my email.  Know that I am thinking of u & ur family!!

I put a cute picture of Tyler and my son, Krae in the photo album. Tyler was nearly 3 and my son was 2. We were in Canada visiting Grandparents and of course the Cottam Family. I love this picture because they were cute riding in this little trailer. They wanted Pop Pop to drive them around. Boy, the boys were laughing. They had a GREAT time riding in it. It is one of my favorites. We were glad Tyler was a part of this family. God Bless to the Cottam Family. Close

Hey Punk! Hows it going up there? 
im sure your having a blast, partying and jammin' with devin.
Things have been pretty crazy down here, everyone is still trying to get over this unbelieveable shock that your gone. its been tough.

i had many memories with you. that ill never forget. you were like a brother to me. always looked out for me. i remember one night you were driving me home and you asked me "hey jess, are you gunna be one of those chicks when your in grade 9 that go out with the way older guys in like grade 12" and i was like "no tyler, i dont think so" and you were like, "good, and if ever any old creep like that tries to hit on you, you let me know and ill take care of it" and i laughed. and there were a few guys but you made sure that they would not even come near me. and i thank you for that tyler. for watching out for me.

many other times partying this summer on your birthday and partying at march carnival at travis' house. Snowmaching, i rememeber one time when i was snowmaching with you, you kept doing dounts until finally i flew off the back and then you just took off and left me there. but you came back, you always came back to help me and everyone. always there for everyone. i miss you so much ty. and your great big smile that would light up anyones face.

and your incredible sense of humor and the way you could make anyone laugh. i remember when we were curling one time. and it was clint and me who had to shoot the rock..and we were just about to shoot it. when you came sliding backwards, towards us..with your ass hanging out. me and clint started lying on the ice laughing, pretending it was the most disgusting thing we ever seen as you just had your huge grin on your face and couldnt stop laughing. uhh tyler. im crying while typing this.

you are loved and missed by so many. ill never forget the times we had together. and seeing you at school. seeing you always when i went for a drink during gym class. or when i would leave gym class early and go and chat with you on the bench for a bit. and ill never ever forget the last time i saw you, in the distance, and you used two fingers to point at your eyes..and then one to point back at me. to tell me that you were looking out for me. i know you still are. i know you always will. i know that no old guys will ever hit on me again cuz they know they will have to deal with you lol. 

it was a week ago today you left us. and you will never be forgotten, your always remmeber always loved. i miss you so much

hope your having fun up there punk. ill always be thinking of you 

love bumpkin.

Its always the most beautiful boys who go too soon  / Lesley
Dear Joanne Rachel and everyone who misses Tyler so much. You don't know me ... I live miles away in South Africa but my son Mark died aged 17  two and a half years ago so I know how awful this pain is and I wish I could take it away and make it right. But you can't. It's just a long road through grief and anguish and slowly you learn to understand more about the other dimension where our beautiful boys are now.


I hope that you feel Tyler's spirit near. If I have learned anything in that last two and a bit years, it is this: The body dies but our spirits are eternal and love never dies.  We have had many experiences of Mark contacting us through dream visits where he talks to us and through many signs and symbolic things that are so unique they simply can't be by chance,

His friends and brothers and I have documented all of these experiences on his website and I encourage you to read about them in his legacy section in the hope that it will encourage you to keep on trying to find joy and meaning without Tyler.

I am so very sorry. It's always the brightest and best ones who go early.

Lesley

Tyler James...  I remember when you were born and what joy your brought into all our lives.  Your Mom and Dad loved you more than anything.  I remember your Mom sleeping on the floor next to your crib because she was so afraid something would happen to you and she wouldn't hear you.  So many years later, and I could see how much you were loved by all the people that showed up at your memorial service.  I think your parents realized just how many people's lives you touched.  They had a pretty amazing son and you will be missed every single day.  I just hope and pray that you have found Pop Pop and Grandma in heaven so that they can be with you always.  We all love you, Tyler....  Aunt Janet Close

Hi honey....

    I am hoping you are reading these postings from heaven. I feel your presence and we sure felt it at the funeral.  I love you so much and your dad and i are so lost without you...you were our life, our laughter, the best story teller, best hip checker in hockey. we will miss you skating and playing hockey and fishing. Your grandparents are so sad. especially grandpa he has just not smiling anymore. I hope you can cheer him up and talk to him.  I sleep with your purple bear with the stuffing gone, i have put pictures in there of you and I kiss your picture every night and say a prayer.   Rachel and I are up late like 2am talking, she misses you so much. I feel for her, know her pain. Hug her lots for you...she is a trooper hon...you and her were perfect.   We took your snowmobile out yesterday and all of your family rode it, including aunt claudia and uncle kenny. I know you were there with them riding, your dad had so much fun. I felt you in my heart and laughing that goofy laugh and smiling so big.  we love you and miss you soo much. Your sister has taken it so hard. and your brothers too.  We are keeping cheyenne and she misses you...bailey too...I am sending you a BIG BIG LONG hug......know that I love you forever and a day!!! love mom and dad

Tyler,


It was Feburary of 1999 when you and I first met. I was in grade three and you were a year older. I remember all the crazy /fun things you, travis, clint and cameron taught me. I never knew how to throw a football, or play soccer, I barely knew how to stop on my skates. In four years of hanging with you, I learnt soo much!! We'd be idiots and snowmobile up steep cliffs,you encouraged me to ride up one, but once i was up, it tumbled down, though you soon rescued my machine before all the gas spilt out of it haha. I was pretty scared but you assured me not to worry, mom and dad wouldn't know lol. Or that time on Travis' birthday in 2002 when we all went out on Crow lake and watched the Juniors win Gold!! That was an amaziing day, watching hockey while ice fishing, doing cat walks on our machines or attempting to ha. So many memories! One of my favourite ones was the day you asked me to be your girlfriend! I was in grade 6, you were in grade 7. You were so nervous, and we were eachother's first girlfriend/boyfriend. it was fun. I appreciated that this past August you let me ride your beast of a truck around, whle you tried to find a lighter lol. You were one crazy (in a good way) guy!! We had a couple drinks at Cameron's, and i'm glad we did! It was nice seeing you once again, because we barely got to! I also appreciated the phone call you left that reached my answering machine saying hi to all of my family, but i called you back and we joked about how we liked to make travis jelous and how janet and eddie just made you the best steak dinner ever! I was really gonna come out and check out this appartment you were so proud of!! I am missing you, and there has always been a place in my heart for you, and your family and there always will be, you were the funnest person anyone could grow up with, and i'm so thankful i did! Thanks for all the good times we had! :)


Love: Lauren

With Love From Rita  / Rita Kells-Pitlik (friend)

Dear Harvey, Joan, Darrin, Kaitlyn and Scotty,
I was so privileged to be a part of your family these past few days.  It meant so much to me.
as I said earlier there is nothing to say or do to make things easier for you.  Lord knows we would if we could.
The service was so well done and inspirational.
You must know that you are in our thoughts and prayers as I do  not think Tyler needs them as much as you.  He is already in heaven.
Joan -  I promised I would visit this summer and I will. We can hang out together.
Love,
Rita
