Tim, I only knew you for a short time but I always looked forward to playing golf with you at Forest Park. Being a member at Bethel Lutheran Church I heard a lot of good things about you. You fortified my belief that there are still quality individuals walking the face of the earth. Now there is one less.
Bless you my friend.
