I love Kyler so much. I just can't believe he's 13!!! He can't be a teenager! I am so thankful for the example he sets for me. He's taught me patience, love, and respect. He is such a great example for his 19 younger cousins. I am sooooo glad he is MY OLDER BROTHER I love you Kyler! Happy Birthday!
Kind, Sweet
Best older brother ever
Young man

Love, Kierstyn

He likes Legos and playing basketball. He is very nice to me and sets a very good example for me. He is a very good learner. I love him. He is very special to me.
Love, Trevin

Happy Birthday teenager!

I can't believe he is a teenager. He is the sweetest most respectful one I know!

I ditto ALL of those characteristics, values, and personality traits of Kyler. He's THE man!! To say I love him is an understatement ~ If all teenagers were a fraction of this good the world would be a MUCH better place. Happy 13th Birthday Kyler!
