Tim was such a beautiful person. Worked with him in repair at southern bell/ AT&T.
When the schedule would come out & I needed a trade I would go to Tim and say hey Tim you my friend and he would say Emma what you need now. We worked so well together.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Just remember the great memories that was shared.
