Tanner LOVED life, Tanner was very compassionate towards others....Tanner LOVED to play the Wii and Nintendo..they became favorite pastimes in the hospital. Tanner was an amazing son, an amazing brother, older AND younger, Tanner liked animals, Tanner never complained, Tanner would often visit other children in their hospital rooms when he could, their parents would ask for him to come see their children because they were so amazed at Tanner's strength and spirit, Tanner loved to read books at night in bed before falling asleep, he loved Spongebob, his favorite episode being about Spongebob taking on a jellyfish as a pet...he loved Wallace and Grommit, he loved his swingset in the backyard and the snow in the mountains...Tanner was a Histio Warrior...truly, a warrior with the brightest eyes and the most warming smile I've ever known...my son.....who would have known the most inspirational person in my life could be a 4 year old?
