"I have so many great childhood memories with Tanner. Some of my favorites are riding bikes, motorcycles and having sleepovers outside where we had planned all of our adventures. One adventure that sticks out the most was when we headed down to the Army surplus store to purchase old helmets and army paint. It was the Fourth of July when we headed out to the old canal behind our houses with a raft, we got ready waited for the fireworks to start and pretend like we were in a Army battle. I will cherish all the great memories I had with Tanner. I am so incredibly sorry for your families loss, Tanner will be greatly missed. Justin Hancey "
