    We feel so fortunate to have known Tyler. Your entire family has always been so kind and generous with your time and love. We appreciated the many hours Tyler came over to work with my Dad after his stroke. He truly loved his family and life.We send you our thoughts and prayers . My Mom is out of the country, but she wanted you to know how much Tyler touched her life! He will truly be missed.

    All our love,

    Leila, Fred, Viv & Lindsey

  3. Dear Shannon, Dani, and Brett,
    I cannot even being to express how horrified I was to hear of this tragedy, or how deeply sorry I am for your family. You guys have always acted as a sort of family to me and the rest of the Sternfelds, and you all have honestly impacted my upbringing and childhood more than you know. It really hasn’t hit me yet that our neighborhood will never be the same again. Without Tyler, there will forever be something missing, but I am so confident that his legacy will live on both in his memory and through the three of you. Mimms, you are honestly the most generous, considerate, and fun family that I know. You have done so much for me, my family, and others over the years, and it really just kills me that you of all people are experiencing this pain that you so clearly do not deserve.

    When I think about growing up on Rancho Grande, there are few things that really stick out in my mind as characterizing my daily life. Of course, I remember fighting with Peter over toys and playing in the cul-de-sac with the other kids in the neighborhood. But perhaps one of my most distinct memories was my morning walk to Marian Bergeson every morning. There was one thing I could consistently count on, right about as I crossed the street and turned onto Rancho Azul: Tyler Mimm singing belting, actually “Mariaaaaa,I just met a girl named Maria.” Though I may have been embarrassed at the time, and may have even rolled my eyes occasionally, when I think back to those mornings, all I can do is smile. Tyler Mimm had a magical way of radiating energy and happiness to those around him unlike any other person I’ve ever known in my life.

    How is it possible that a man could always be happy or at least appear so??? Even when he was picking Peter and me up for carpool in his white truck or the Mimm taxi at 7:30 in the morning, he would still have a huge smile on his face as he said “Good mornin’, Sternfelds!” in his undeniably loud voice. He was definitely always a lot more upbeat than any of the kids in the car.

    Shannon and Dani, the last time I was home and we went to Riptide for sushi with my mom, I remember distinctly having a conversation about how Tyler was “such a good one”, and we all agreed that you guys really lucked out in having a husband and dad as amazing as Tyler. That’s really the best way to sum it up- you guys and Brett, of course are so incredibly fortunate to have been blessed with such a genuinely kind, thoughtful, involved, fun and all around good natured man as Tyler.

    Though I am currently more than 3000 miles away from the “Rancho Posse” I think that’s what the boys called it?, my thoughts and prayers at this time are firmly planted back home, in our neighborhood. This loss will affect so many whose lives were touched by Tyler in the community, and of course you realize that he will never be forgotten. I know you are in the utmost of pain at this time, but you are three unbelievably strong people who I respect greatly and I am confident that you guys will get through this. Tyler would want you to. Once again, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.

    Maria or “Ia” as Shannon says

  4. To the family,
    I had the great experience to work with Tyler. A wonderful man, kind, big hearted, funny. Always making the office laugh with his practical jokes. He will be truly missed, but never forgotten.

  5. Dear Shannon,Dani And Brett:Although I have not met you personally, I feel that I know you. Tyler was my physical therapist for the last year and a half but most importantly the big brother I never had. He was always so proud of his family and what they were accomplishing. He was always so open about his love and concern for all of you. He never spoke about himself. It was always “the family”. At physical therapy he loved his music. We would have “guess the artist” contests while listening toKEARTH101. He understood the link between music and helping me to heal my body and more intrinsically, my injured soul. The medical profession can be so cut and dried about injury. Not Tyler. Tyler was all about healing and finding a solution to that which caused one suffering. He was passionate about everything he did. He loved his fireworks,family celebrations, nature, and his passion of surfing. The only time I saw him get upset is when he would talk passionately about taking advantage of “the little guy” in our world like the oil companies,medical system, and erosions of personal freedoms. Tyler always made me feel part of his family and the Family of life. I know he has caught the ultimate wave and is surfing to a much happier place where we will all will see him soon. Smiling,laughing joking, enjoying his food and drink and shooting the breeze with all of us. The world has lost a superstar who connected us all in such a simple but vital way. I will not say goodby Tyler, but see you ——–
