I am so very sorry to hear Ty has passed. She and I were in the same class in school. I spent lots of time hanging out with Daryl. I arranged that first date between Ty and Daryl. One of the best ideas of my life! My heart goes out to Daryl and sons. - Dave Cummings, Sr.

Just a little note to say how sad I am to see that Tyra passed away. We try to remember the good times at times like this, of three little girls playing in Morgantown. We were without problems back then....just fun and games. RIP my friend of childhood. My condolences to your family and a special HI to Sherry. May the love of God be with you.

I was saddened to hear of Ty's passing. I remember as a kid how funny, light-hearted and happy she always seemed to be. May GOD bless you Daryl and the entire Hicks family.
