Tim you will be missed. Throughout the years I came to love you as a brother and always found you to be incredibly kind, insightful and always humorous. Our talks ranged from time cards to God and everything in between and undoubtedly I always was left laughing and feeling better about life. Thank you for that Tim.

To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die. ~ Thomas Campbell I've known Timmy since I was fifteen, we were married in our twenties, and though we ended our marriage we remained friends and family--including each other's families. We never had any children, but we were each blessed with plenty of nieces and nephews, and Tim loved them all. Timmy was a self-taught musician, he played multiple instruments but he excelled at guitar. He was one of those who could listen to a song, then quickly play it. That was always our thing from the start, he had a nice singing voice and I loved to sing too. When his sister Diann joined us in song, our sound was glorious together, no other way to describe it. For fifty years Tim and I have helped each other through our lives, we maintained the good aspects of our relationship, discarded the bad. There was no bitterness--between us. I will miss my life-long friend, but I'm relieved that he is no longer suffering with the physical pain he endured for too long. Now I have his sweet siamese rescue cat named Sealie, and I'm as attached to her as he was. Rest in peace with God, dearest Timmy.
