I was so glad I went to the reunion and Tim was there. We went to Northeast Elementary together and on from there. I lost touch with a lot of people thru the years but NEVER forgot any of them. Tim always had a special place in my heart, he was a fine person and an old  friend. My sincere condolences to his beloved family.
