Tyler Clementi

He will wipe every tear from their eyes.
There will be no more death or mourning
or crying or pain, for the old order
of things has passed away.
Revelation 21:4

Tyler was a wonderful young man who gave his family joy beyond measure. He was a gifted violinist, and was always willing to share his gift with those who loved him... be it with the worship band at church, as part of the many orchestras in which he performed or in the comfort and quiet of his own home. Many of us were blessed to have known such an amazing and talented person. Tyler was loved and will be missed.

Dear Clementi Family,
My heart has been aching for you since the time I first heard about your most talented and loved son, Tyler. At the time of the tragic news, my 20 year old son was studying abroad in China. The news so concerned me that I found the courage to begin the discussion of my son's sexual orientation in a phone conversation that resulted in a loving and open dialogue. I hope and pray that in many ways there can be good that comes of this awful tragedy you had to endure. What a senseless loss. My prayers and concerns go out to you.

I'm so sorry. May he rest in peace. You didn't lose a person; you gained an angel. May God Bless you.

Nothing can compensate for your loss and I am so deeply sorry. I promise, as a mom, that I will always remember Tyler's story and will strive to ensure other families do not suffer as you are--whether it's standing up to bullies or teaching my children to fearlessly stand up for anyone who might need it. I will teach them Tyler matters.

Even though I never knew Tyler, I feel a special connection to him which has not diminished over the last several months. I keep a picture of him on my bedside table, as a way to never forget what happened to him, to remind me to be kinder to those around me, and to, in a way, celebrate his life. We decorated our Christmas tree in pink and purple this year to honor his memory.

Take care

"The front left corner of the sanctuary seems so empty now. That's Tyler's corner; he should be there and I'm so sad that he's not. But in my mind's eye he is, and always will be, violin in hand, blessing us all with his incredible talent."
