People who hadn't heard about Tyler's passing are just now finding about it by stumbling on his page. For instance, our former youth pastor Rob. Well then my friend Tom (the guy I've known since 1st grade who got me going to church and everything) saw Rob's status and that I had commented on it and asked me what happened. To think, if we didn't have this mind numbing time wasting internet site, people wouldn't even know that their friend had died. Nobody would have called or written or emailed (I don't know if including email goes against my point or not). I don't live there anymore. Neither do Rob or Tom. (Though I am surprised that nobody called Rob, seeing how the former Jr. High pastor was the one who officiated the funeral, which was at our church.) None of us are really in the circle of his super close friends. So, ya know, wtf. Thank God for technology, but damn it at the same time.
ETA 1: Rob did know.
ETA 2: I meant to include this - I did send Tyler's mom a message about possibly meeting up, but she didn't really give a conclusive reply, so I didn't want to push the issue. Oh well :)
