Tim was a friend of mine since 1993. I will miss his quirky sense of humor and smile.
Ride on to Heaven, and be set free my friend!

I held you in my arms 57 years old. I watched you take your first step, listen to your first giggle, feed you and nurtured much of your life. You were my first child to love. I taught you to pray and I sang songs to you to send you to sleep. Puff the Magic Dragon was your favorite. I raised when mom couldn't and I was honored to so. You were there when your nephew Josh was born. You and loved him as your your own. I was there when Vanessa passed. We have always been there for each other under every circumstance... I loved you in the beginning and I love you in the end. You were a gentle spirit who read his bible privately, publicly would give your last dime to help someone, stop on the road for a stranger, but was as hard as nails....and defended his family ferociously. You were a good man who carried the weight of your indiscretions upon your shoulders. You wanted better for your children and you leave with them knowing you did the best you could, You always tried to choose the higher ground in life. Now you rest with our family and your friends. I will see you on the other side.
