Janet, Deborah, Mark and Sheila, my heartfelt condolences are with you all. We don’t expect to loose a husband or sibling so early. Especially when they’re so full of life! Tim was so loved by family and friends all around. You are going to miss him deeply but time will heal the pain and all the wonderful memories will always be with you! I’m sorry I couldn’t stay longer after his funeral. It was a beautiful service. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you. May God bless you with His peace.
