    We have known Tim for over 20 years. He acted more like a good friend to us than a flooring layer. We used to visit and enjoyed his smile so much. We saw him a month ago and told him he was always in our prayers. He fought the good fight and now he can rest. We will miss him.

    I knew Tim when we were both in our early 20’s. He was a cook, I was a bartender. I remember seeing his smiling face through the kitchen window. We met again more recently and he looked great. I was deeply saddened to read the news today of his death. So sorry. May God bless his soul.
