Dad, there are so many things to say, so many memories.I will say this, I miss you every day, I think of you all the time. Each milestone in our lives I want to share with you, and cannot anymore, each time I find myself picking up the phone to call you, I cannot. You provided me with so much, you taught me how to live with humility, how to enjoy life, how to be a good man. The best thing I can do to honor you is to live my life with passion, and to live every moment as if it were the last.. You lived with gusto, and you died with grace. Now you live on in our hearts, and in our memory. I love you Dad, I miss you, and I will honor you by living my life to the fullest! God Bless. Love, your son, Tim

The best, greatest, funny jokester, biggest smile ever, can hear his laugh, see his cute pouty face, see his big, happy smile, (could be a known as a dirty old man) hope you don't mind Dolly.)that's what made him so fun to be around,along with all of his good, happy traits. Such a wonderful person. Totally devoted to Dolly. The love of his life. Best friend and uncle ever. He will always be in my heart, forever.
