Tim, Mark and family… truly sorry for your loss! I still have plenty of memories of our more youthful days when we were always driving each other’s parents crazy!
Your dad was always good to me, and it was a pleasure to reacquaint with one another while I was living back in Ohio for a couple years. May you all find peace with your lifetime of memories, and knowing he’ll be waiting on the other side! God Bless!
