Many people expressed their love for the gesture, with people writing such messages as:
"THIS IS JUST THE BEST ! Toni- I love how you are honoring Tyler and blessing someone else and sharing with us all to cherish our time with our loved ones. We are not guaranteed another day and we all to often take that for granted. I didn't know Tyler personally but I know Ryan was close with him and greatly impacted his life!"
"Oh my goodness - this is beautiful and a wonderful way to honor someone. Thanks, Toni! Now everyone is cherishing your son today."
"This was so sweet on behalf of both. Later this year, I will be celebrating my daughter's ten year rebirthday. Ever since her passing, I have done something, even if it is little, to celebrate her birthdays and rebirthdays. It is impossible to express how paying it forward in some slight way really is therapeutic in making a bittersweet day better."
