My deepest sympathy to all of Timmy's Family. I'm gong to miss you and your smile and unconditional love and kindness to me. A memory.... was in the kitchen at your home with your Mom and remember her picking on you because you let you hair grow long and she kept asking when are you going to get it cut. We just laughed. You liked it you said. Smile. Thank you for serving our country. Thank you for being you. Love, Cathy.
