    candle 1My thoughts and prayers are with you Karen and your family. I will remember his sense of humor, which he had until the end, and how he made me laugh. I remember his warm smile and what a hard worker he was as we worked at the fish fries, and the picnics together. I am also blessed in that Tim remodeled my kitchen and what a fantastic job he did! I cherish it even more now. God bless you Tim. Fly High.

    Remember the times playing in the creek when we were kids, riding the “little car, Elroy made, running the raccoon trail at “the club”, going on vacations together. Kids never had it so good.
    God bless, you Timmy. Our prayers are with you and yours.

    Karen, Travis, and Nicole I was so sorry to hear of Tim’s passing. When I moved into my house 13 years ago, I never know what a kind neighbor Tim and his family would be. Love and prayers!

    Dear Nicole & Karen,

    I want to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your father and husband. Tim was one of the greatest guys we’ve ever known, and we think of him often as we enjoy the home he built for us.

    I am so sorry that I couldn’t attend the funeral, but the blizzard made me stay at home so Mike could attend. Mike told me that I missed a great celebration of Tim’s life and I know I would have enjoyed see you two and everyone else.

    Love, Tree (Patricia Hall Miller)
