I was shocked to hear of the news tonight. I will miss all of his emails. We have remained in touch since he, Tara, and I met. While I have only met Tara, I have seen photos and heard about the rest of his family. My thoughts are with you in this tough time.

Tim was truly a special person. I miss talking to him, and will miss him when I visit Richmond. I last saw Tim a month ago. Ironically, he and I had a long discussion over dinner about faith. Please take comfort knowing that Tim is now with his heavenly father. I feel very fortunate having known Tim and will remember him always. My prayers will be with you and your family during this difficult time. Please feel free to contact me if you ever need anything.

Work just isn't the same without Tim calling me up and telling me what to do or just to say hi. He meant a great deal to me and I just can't stop thinking about how unfair life can be.

Chaley and family-I hope that the pain fades quickly. I know the memories will last forever for all that knew your father.
