Trina and Kjos family, my heart is breaking for all of you. I don't know what it is like to lose a parent or a child so I can't say that I know what you are going through. Please know that God is faithful and He will never leave you nor forsake any of you. Tim fought hard for a long time and now God needs him in heaven for us to meet up with him at another time. Please know that I love you all and I am praying for you. If I can ever do anything for any of you, please don't hesitate to let me know.
