Dear Tim, as you no doubt remember, during Jr. High, I think I spent more time with your family and at your house than I did my own. I have many fond memories of times out on the boat with you and your dad (not to mention the lonnnngg road trip to Goshen, IN to get that boat). I hope you find some peace, solace, and rest during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you my longtime friend.
