I'm so glad I had the chance to speak with him a few weeks ago, always loved chatting with him. My thoughts and prayers to his kids and grandchildren who he so deeply loved.

Tim and I had the greatest summer memories as teenagers when I was in visiting my cousin. It took us 50 years to reconnect and I am sorry it took that long. I will miss him dearly.
He was very proud of his family. You were blessed.
