I was so honored to have met Tim and you at Northside many years ago. He was always so kind, and readily anxious to Serve God - and he did so with such Honor. I am glad he had such a loving & God fearing woman as a wife, they don't come any better than you. God sure knew what he was doing when He placed you two together. I pray of all the beautiful memories you have to come, even the ones that stream down your face, that you will find comfort knowing where Tim is - We Love you! Andy and Lisa
