"The easiest thing we ever did was to welcome you into our lives, the hardest thing we ever did was to let you go." - The Springer Family
For those of you who have been with us for a number of years you shared our joy and the pain we experienced with our son-in-law, Tyler Easton.
Tyler's leg was broken in a bull ride and never healed. Later Tye's leg was diagnosed to be cancer, osteosarcoma. Tye's leg was later amputated and numerous surgeries and trips to cancer institutes were a true test of courage and character for both.
In June of 2010 Karley and the cowboy with the still mile wide smile, Tye, were married. Tye lost his fight with cancer on November 15, 2010 at the age of 22.
Each year we raise funds for the "Tyler Easton Foundation" and this year we are raffling off a shot gun with the total proceeds going directly to cancer patients and their families in his hometown community.
This page on our website is meant to celebrate and to remember Tye Easton's life... so, thank you for taking the time to look through the photos, smile and celebrate Tye's life.

Once in a while
Someone comes along
That one in a million heart
So pure and so strong
They can face up to the tears
And somehow still find a smile
We only get it
Every once in a while...
Stop back to this page from time to time, look at the photos, listen to the song, shed a tear, celebrate his life and remember Tye. At 22 years old, he was tougher than most kids his age. Tye, we won't forget you.
