I wanted to share about the impact that Tim had. When I say he invested in people's lives, I know he did because he did in ours. We knew him from RMC and from our kids attending CSCS. Whether it was at band, volleyball, or soccer events, he would provide wonderful barbecue to eat that beat anything a caterer could make. I recall he invested in my sons. He had them do some work for them and said they were pretty good workers (when they were still teens.) He had them read the book "Do Hard Things" and they had to talk about the book and what they learned from it. (This book was by young twins also teens about accepting the challenge of more responsibility). When the heating element went out in our stove he found someone to come over and do it and paid him for his work so we wouldn't be without an oven. He would make amazing cajun food for New Years Eve and take some around to people to share. We were recipients of this a couple of times as the red beans and rice, and collard greens were out of this world. He was ever present at everything that went on. We saw our daughters graduate and go off to college. I remember the last thing of his that I ate was a Greek salad that he brought to a church picnic. It was so good! I got a list from him of what goes into it, and wrote it down! This world will not be as wonderful a place without him, but I'm sure heaven is rejoicing and welcoming him home! Prayers for God's comfort to all from Chris, James, Matthew, and Elizabeth (Lizzy).

Pegi and family,
My heart breaks for you in the loss of your sweet husband!!! My prayers are with you during this difficult time and for his other partners as well at Creative Forecasting! You are loved and thought of often, and I know this is not a club you wished to belong to.

Lovingly,
