Karen and I were so sorry to hear of Tim's passing. We wished we could have known him when he was healthy but we enjoyed greeting him at the Veteran's Home and interacting with his faithful wife and daily companion, Chong. We extend to you our greatest condolences, Chong and to your family. May Tim rest in the peace he so richly deserves after all his suffering.

Rest easy Timothy. It wa a pleasure to know you and count you as a friend.
May the good Earth be soft under you
When you rest upon it,
May it rest easy over you when
At last, you lay out under it.
And may it rest so lightly over you
That your soul may be out
From under it quickly, and up and off,
And be on it's way to God.
