    Kim, Larry, Gary and family I am so very sorry for your loss. Tim was such a sweet person and he accepted whatever life handed him the good with the bad kept the faith and carried on. I admired you Gary for picking him up on Sundays and bringing him to church showing such brotherly love. Tim always ha d a smile on his face. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead as you go in life without your dear brother it’s a big adjustment as I have walked in your shoes and know. God bless you all
