**************************************************************** Sincere thanks

Let me begin by saying thank you to the Sault area Fire, Police, Hospital staff, staff and students at Sault College, staff at the Northern Treatment Center, and Mike Quinn at Best Western in your fair city.

Everyone in the Sault can be very proud to have so many caring people in your community.

Our son Tyler life came to a tragic end April 29 2003.

Tyler was doing what he enjoyed doing being with nature and pushing himself to test his limits. It must be very unnerving for all of the emergency personnel to have to attend to an accident of this nature.

You all have to return to families and loved ones and try to maintain some form of normalcy in the face of tragedy.

With the support of loved ones, friends and a passion to help your fellow man you all persevere. The outpouring of support has been overwhelming; so many people have offered and given their support.

All of Tyler’s friends and teachers; you hold a special place in our hearts. Always remember learn from the past and live for the future.

- David, Liz and Devin Yuke
