She continued, “While Tyler quietly fought his inner battles, he was outwardly determined to make sure no one felt as he did. Tyler loved the Lord, loved people and did his best every day. It is our sincere prayer that our story might save others.”
Tyler’s passing has also been heavily felt within the acting community, with Just Add Magic: Mystery City director Joe Nussbaum honoring Tyler’s memory by creating the “Do More 4 Tyler” initiative, which aims to implement a seminar for child actors, per the press release.
“One of the greatest joys of making kids TV is the opportunity to work with talented, enthusiastic, dedicated young actors like Tyler,” Joe wrote. “Tyler was so focused on his acting career that he would often write ‘Do More’ on his hand to remind him to work to achieve his goals. Now, it’s our turn to ‘Do More.'”
