Everyday it hits me a bit more that i will not be able to see my wonderful uncle anytime i want. We didn't stay in contact all the time over the years but he played a very important roll for me in my life . Memories flood back like flip book pictures of him teaching me to ride a bike , taking me to jet ski, singing to me, trips to oklahoma, family get togethers filled with so much musical talant and love . He even started me on my crazy animal loving journy when i found a tiny hachling box turtle stuck in the mud when i was a little (about 4) . i still to this day remeber what he said , " sammy gurl , its not ours to keep forever but we can give it a bath and a bed by the porch but when he is ready he will go back to his home . " So many wonderful memories i will forever hold dear in my heart.

My heart is completely broken by the loss of my brother. Even though I know that he was ready to go home, I just can't conceive a world without Tim in it. The thing that makes it a little bearable is the knowledge that I will see him again someday. I had the honour to witness the day he gave his life to the Lord. He isn't in pain. He isn't worrying about anyting. I will carry the many memories we shared for the rest of my life. He could always make me laugh. Even when I didn't want to or when it wasn't the best time. Like after surgery.... When I was drinking something.... I loved to sit and listen to him play the guitar and sing. Some of my fondest memories was of our family sitting around at the lake while the brothers played and sang. And when Timmy would take me to places with pinball machines or on driving trips. I love you Brother and look forward to seeing you again.
