My dear friend Tim "Otis". I am so very grateful I got to see you and talk with you last year. My friend for close to 50 years. I will always hold incredible memories of laughter and friendship close to my heart. I am beyond numb and my heart hurts. I will see you on the other side my friend, I love you like a brother.

Where does one start with over 50 years of friendship... our bonding of friends started back in high school and the love for live music and of course "Jackie Gleason and The Honeymooners". I remember back in 1986 and during that summer we must of saw over 30 concerts... one night it was ZZ Top the next it was the Hey Hey were the Monkeys. Best of Times for sure. Will miss you My Friend!
