FRAZEE -- The Sunday, Feb. 14, entry in Tyler Shipman's Caring Bridge journal was brief, but heartbreaking:

"Tyler lost his very brave and valiant fight with cancer and went home to be with his heavenly Father at approximately 7:45 tonight."


Since then, messages of sympathy have been pouring in from all over the U.S., and some from as far away as the West Indies.
