From a OHS 1983 Classmate. It has been a long time since I have seen or talked to Tim but I was saddened to hear the news. I will always prefer to remember Tim as I knew him in the early 1980's a really nice kid with his future ahead of him. Godspeed Tim

Still in shock. In so many ways you were my alter ego at work. We bantered back and forth. Yet we never made it personal. I wish you peace now Tim. Though I never really got to know Val I also wish her peace during these difficult times. May God give the peace that only He can give.
