Tyler Logan Forrester was born on July 24, 2009 in Detroit, Michigan. He was the son of Victoria Forrester. Even before his birth his family knew that his life would be difficult, but they received Tyler with much anticipation and with open arms. On October 4, 2009 the Forrester’s were able to have Tyler dedicated at the Stewart Road Christian Ministries Center.
Tyler was blessed by having a large and devoted family. He enjoyed being read to and especially being sung to. Tyler was constantly being cuddled and coddled. He didn’t mind; in fact he preferred sleeping next to his mother over sleeping in a lonely crib. If grandpa had had his way, Tyler would have grown to be an avid Red Wings fan as well.
Tyler Logan Forrester age 11 weeks while being held in his mothers arms passed away at 3:27am, Monday, October 12, 2009. At the moment of his passing Tyler was received in the arms of his Heavenly Father.
