Shelbi, Josh, Rhonda, Polly, and Zaden,
I am so so very sorry for your loss, as this is a loss for me as well. Tim and I had been friends for over 20 years. I will always keep him in my heart. He could always make me laugh even when I didn't want to. This life won't be the same without him being a phone call away.

August 9, 2019 are the most giving person and you have the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. You are so loved and missed by many people. You helped me when no one did. I love you Tim.

Wow, it's so hard to believe you are gone. When I got the news I didn't say anything for a minute. I just sat there in shock to what I was hearing.
You had been on my mind a few days before I found out. Friday a week ago I think it was. We hadn't talked in a good while. But I was just thinking of old times and how this had been the longest we had ever been w out checking in on each other. I should have called and asked how to get in touch with you. Just to say hi and let you know that I hoped you were doing good. It never mattered how long we didn't see each other for ... we picked right back up where we left off. Had I gotten in touch with you it would have been the same way.
We had so many laughs along the years. You were easy to make laugh.
You were always there for me even if I was talking about the SAME thing, if I was upset you were there and let me cry on your shoulder. You always told me everything was going to be ok..(and you were right.) You would listen as long as I needed you to. You were and always will be one of my dearest friends. One of my best friends. And a REAL friend. And I thank you for that.
I have too many memories to list here. They are all racing through my head. I can hear you laughing. Rusty and I (and a few other people)have been sharing stories back and forth about all our memories w you. One of my favorite things was beating you at a game of darts. It made you so mad if I won lol. You taught me how to play.
I wish I could see you one more time. Hug you and tell you thank you for always being there for me. Through good times and bad. You were like a big brother to me. I remember being there for you when your sister passed away. You loved her so much.
My face is a mess now so I better go. I love you sweet friend and I will never ever forget you EVER. I can promise you that. You will always have a special place in my heart and I'll never forget your big smile. Fly high my dear friend. Until we meet again. Love you, Shawna.

There are a lot of memories and lot of good times. We were friends for over 20 years. He always made me smile and laugh even when I didn't want to. I am at a total loss and life won't be the same without him in it. I will miss him terribly as I know everyone will.
RIP Tim, I love you.

I have known Tim for years through my son, Matt Ryan. When he would come to the house he always cracked jokes about Matt. A mother loves to hear the fun the two of them had, yes clean fun. Your Dad was a pleasure to be around Shelbi. May Memories see you through this difficult time. Rest in peace Tim.
