I am broken-hearted to hear about Tim. We were friends since youngsters. Tim was my brother's best friend for years, and Tim was in his wedding. My brother is very saddened. We all loved Tim. My mother keeps saying how grieved she is for Joanne and Harold who were close friends of my parents. We are praying for all the family at this difficult time. “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms…” Deuteronomy 33:27
