  1. Tim was a great person. I grew up with him. I remember going to Bibble School at Browns VIew when his dad preached there and we were on a hay ride and he fell off and broke his leg. Timothy was always a cheery person. My heart goes out to his family..in my prayers always…wendy

  2. Tim was well liked by my son. They had become friends through Chrysalis. They both served on the Teen Board together for Chrysalis and they also attended the same reunion group. Tony will miss him a lot.

  3. Jewell, I was so very sorry to hear of your loss. I know he was the world to you, and my heart brakes for you. He is now with the Lord, and I know you know this already, but maybe it will offer some comfort. I have thought of you often, since Gerber, but I didn’t think the next time I would be in touch with you, would be because of your son. I am so very sorry, and you all are in my prayers. Angel Hugs to you and yours, Judy
