Tyer Tuesdays.... my gramps




I think this is my favorite picture of all.


Dick Daniel Tyer
was a great, great man. He always had the warmest smile. And he was so smart, it's seems he knew about absolutely everything, and could do anything. He built the house my mom grew up in with his own hands. One of my favorite things was the small waterfall and pond he built in the side yard. And his workshop was a sight to behold. He could fix anything. And he was always so interesting to talk to. I miss my visits with him. He was always tinkering around the house. I remember once going to visit and he was vacuuming out the coils in the fridge. And he kept right on going while he visited with me. I never knew two retired people to be as busy as my grandparents were. And boy were they technology savvy. They had us using the internet and email before the phrase www was ever coined. Gramps was a great man. He was always happy to help and loved to be with us. I love you gramps.

xoxo Always,

Amber

Thank you, sweet Amber. Your tribute to your Gramps is very tender and helped me remember much of what he offered everyone whose life he touched. I know he is very proud of you and your beautiful family.
Love, Mom
