    I have fond memories of Tim, when he would come to youth group back when my brother Timmy would come. We always had great times. I remember the time, we were giving pony rides at the country fair at church, and the pony ran. Tim was one of the ones, who were able to catch him …. all safe and sound. We sure laughed, that night. More out of relief. Lol.
    Then I saw him a few years ago, when he voted at the Hornell Gardens. , I recognized him right away and we got to talk a few minutes. It was nice seeing him again. His mom, Audrey was a dear friend. May you Rest In Peace Tim. It was a blessing to have known you. Prayers and sympathy to you all. God bless.
