Prayers to the family. I haven't seen him in years but he is a staple of my childhood. He was such a sweet soul. We rode the bus together when I was living in pendleton. I'm blessed to have known him and he will be forever remembered ❤️ rest in heaven ❤️

Tanner was one of my babies at the daycare I was working at, little peoples, he was such a joy and sweet little boy, who grew up to be just as sweet, he always smiled and gave me a hug when we saw each other, which wasn’t often. But, he remembered me and said I was his favorite teacher. I will forever remember Tanner and he will be missed dearly. He will now be with a very dear Angel close to my heart in heaven now, my sweet mama, Miss Mary Boone, she will give him the biggest hug and a warm smile. You Rest In Peace, my sweet Tanner.

Tanner was such a kind and gentle soul. I told him he was so young but had an old soul. He will be greatly missed. I know my brother was there to welcome you home Tanner.

I never had the privledge of knowing Tanner, but I knew his parents, and Im so very sorry for their loss. may the good Lord give them the strength to endure the days ahead.

My heart just broke when I heard the news of Tanner's passing. I still thought of him as a little boy swimming at the pool and Trick or Treating with Nathan and Loren, such good memories. Those days were good times and memories like this are what we have to hold on to now. Love and prayers go out to the family and I hope time will heal the void you must feel right now but God will get you through these tough times, lean on him and your family and friends.
