Tyler's Ocean

For La Petite's friend Tyler, who is in his last days. Tyler's Ocean collection is being organized by Tyler's good friend and former roommate, Eric. Here is Eric's letter and request.

One thing Tyler really wanted to do again was see the ocean one last time. Unfortunately that is now impossible. However, with your help, we can do the next best thing for him. We can bring the ocean to him. I don’t know exactly how much time we have left but I speak for all of us when I say that I’m not going to just sit around and do nothing while I wait for his time to come. Tyler is still here, this is NOT over, and we can still help him.

So here is the plan. We need ocean pictures. If you have pictures of the ocean, we need them! We are going to take all these pictures and cover his entire room with them. This way Tyler can be at the ocean with all of his friends.

The first way and probably the easiest for everyone is just to email them to an email account I set up just for this. The address is TylersOcean at gmail dot com. This saves people trips and hassles. With your help we can give Tyler something as close to one of his last wishes as possible. With just a little effort you can help us bring Tyler the ocean! --Eric

This is not an anonymous Internet urban myth; this young man is La Petite's friend. If you have ocean pictures that you're willing to share, you can send them to Tyler's Ocean.

This post made me cry. So many kind people willing to help others. We don't appreciate those people enough. I hope the people organizing this know how special they are.
