I never knew Tim, but I knew his father, Troy (when we were all carefree teenagers who were going to rule the world someday), and recognized Tim instantly as Troy's son... same eyes, same smile, same deep family love. Troy, and wife/mother Roxanne, my heartfelt condolences go out to you for your untimely, tragic loss. We expect our children to outlive US. There is no greater pain on this earth than to lose a child... Prayers for healing and comfort go out to your family, and may Tim forever be in the hearts of his loved ones, and the eyes of his children, and grandchildren, and...
