Tim was my son Nick’s friend since 9th grade. He was famous for giving the best hugs ever. In the photos one hug was from a few years ago and the second from last year. Always loved you and will always miss you Timmy 💗💗

Tim, You will certainly be missed greatly. We had some great times that certainly helped shape the person I am today. We may have had our differences but the good times are all that I can remember now anyways. I'll always cherish those great times and forever remember you.
