    The Davidson family believes in the resurrection so we will see Tyrone again face-to-face. Although he’s no longer physically present, our memory of him will never fade. We bid him farewell for now and we know he’s at peace with no more woes. Rest on Tyrone. We love you and we’ll see you face-to-face once again in Heaven.
