    R.I.P. His mother must have been so proud of Tyler. I bet he brought her a lot of happiness.

    Look up "KLTA Perez" on you tube. You will find a fantastic video showing Mario being handed his balls in a bag… Good stuff!

    Tyler there is nothing worse than losing your mama. Mine passed two years ago and the pain is like it was the day she passed. The strangest thing about it is you think "I got to call mom about that" and realizing you cannot do that anymore. I wish you love and lots of good memories to appreciate the woman who gave you life. Godspeed!

    sorry to hear that, my thoughts and prayers are with you Tyler.

    I just finished watching him on Barbara Walters most fascinating people of 2009 speaking about how his Mom inspired and protected him as a young boy from an abusive father - She is a good woman to have raised a young boy to become a man with such sucess -mothers should be inspired to do better for their own children when you hear of Mom's like Tylers..May she rest in peace.

    RIP, I lost my brother a few years ago, and I know there is nothing more earth shattering than a death in the family.
    He'll make it though, because you have to keep in mind that we were not intended to stay.

    Tomarrow was made for some.

    That's really weird because on the Barbara Walters fascinating people thing, he was saying how much he loves his mom and how he's most proud of being able to give her things she's always wanted now….that's sad =[

    Tyler, My love goes out to you and your famliy. I am sure you nurturied all of your material from your family, and for that I am grateful. This site is so full of judgement, but your show (House of Payne) is so full of love. No matter what faith, or none at all, I love your show :) I am from Canadian and just flew over ATL and wish I could have stayed for a visit. I discovered your show 3 years ago while in Dominican on vacation and have watched it ever since. I Love You :)
