    I’m so sorry to hear this sad news about Tucker. I have a grandson named Tucker, which gives me pangs of grief. You’ll be in my prayers.

  • Rosie Jones (Courtney Lee’s mom) Posted June 15, 2017 11:09 AM

    I will be forever grateful for Tucker’s big heart as he befriended my daughter who had moved to Little Rock for her first travel nurse assignment 2 years ago. Tucker took her canoeing for the very first time ever and they biked the trails around Little Rock. As a mom I was so happy to know she had a good friend in a city where she knew no one at first. Courtney shared so many amazing photos of their adventures around the city from biking, hiking and just having fun and loving life.

    I am heartbroken to have never gotten that chance to meet him as he touched my heart and my life so much even though I had never met him in person.

    Rest in peace sweet Tucker, I wish your family and all those who were lucky enough to know you comfort and peace at this difficult time. Love lasts forever and you are truly loved by many.

  • Frances Roller Posted June 15, 2017 11:31 AM
