My heart goes out to you and the kids Wanda. As you know although we were cousins we raised up together as brothers. I think back of all the good times we had, from hanging out at the race track to all the times he rode with me when I was at the Police Dept. Too many memories to put all on here. I will miss him forever. Love you.

I have had the privilege of knowing Tim and Wanda for a few years now. Tim never met a stranger and had the most special smile. I am going to miss that smile and am very proud to have known Tim and call him a friend. May God protect Wanda, the kids and grandchildren and they process this time of loss and sorrow.
