Wyatt C Olson, i don't know where to begin, he was such a sweat heart an angel. I have never met anyone just like him. this effected me so much, my heart breaks everyday and hes always on my mind. sharing science class freshman year was the best part of my life we would talk everyday, he sat right next to me. im so saddened.i remember him asking for gum 1 day and i couldn't give it to him so the next day i brought him a whole pack and he was so surprised,his smile was so contagious.and when me and him gave each other science answers,I will never forget his laugh he was one of a kind, i hope to see him again one day... i use to talk about him all the time to my sister freshman year... i miss you so much.he always made me feel so good because he would tell me that i was such a nice person and, he would stop everything he was doing and turn to talk to me and no one elsedid that, he made everyone feel special, west high school was rough for me because of how political and diverse it was, but he made it so worth it. :*(my heart broke to see his obituary picture,it felt like i was dreaming my heart stopped and i was in disbelief because i remember how happy and sweet he always was, i have a reminder on my phone for the 30th of every month.i moved away sophomore year and wasn't able talk much,but he left a huge impact on me.i know i will see Wyatt again one day,it just takes time.The heavens have gained yet another angel. i will keep the family in my prayers.happy 17th birthday August 6th,2001 Wyatt

Dear Kerry Jo, Erik, Cody, Kylie, and the rest of your family, I am incredibly sorry for your loss. Wyatt was a wonderful kid--he was so polite, so happy, always smiling. I loved the friendship he and Dayne had. I never had to worry about the two of them getting into trouble together, but knew they would be having a good time. Wyatt will be sorely missed. Love, Kathy and Andy

Wyatt is one of my oldest friends. I remember our days as best friends in elementary school so clearly. I remember the days we ran around on the playground playing football, tag, sandman and so many more games that would fill us with endless fun everyday. I remember every good day all of the time's we would go to his house after school or during the summer and we would play club penguin for hours or just grab a football and play in his yard. I even remember all the bad times on the play ground where we would be in a argument and my 11 year old self would yell "Im not your friend anymore" and the very next day i'd apologize and we would continue being best friends. No matter what we were doing it was always fun and perfect because we were with each other. He always had a smile on his face. I don't think its possible to take a picture of wyatt without him smiling. He never talked down to others and was always a nice spirit. I don't know a single person that didn't like Wyatt. Everyone I know at west appreciated having his opinion and having him as a friend. It seemed he enjoyed everything he did. I loved Wyatt and I will never forget him.
