Name: From Janie, Stacie & Dexter
Message: This goes out to all of our loving family and dear friends: Our lives are forever changed! Tim (and Daddy) was such a unique man, who loved and enjoyed life to the fullness. He never met a stranger. And if he liked you then you could expect that he was going to pick with you. We know that he is in God's precious arms and him, his Dad and my Mom and Dad are rejoicing for the day that we can all be back together. But, for now, we have to continue on this Earth without the love of my life and our precious daddy. We will overcome this, just as many have. Right now, it is very, very hard, but with all the support from you guys and our Lord, we can do this. Thanks for everything that you all have done to make this more bearable. Tim and Daddy's love for us will forever be in our hearts and souls. Heaven has just been more blessed with his presence. Love to all!
