I am so saddened by the loss of Tim. I just saw and spoke to him at the Millikan reunion. He was dedicated to helping his grandfather Loren that day. I got to help him with the door to the church as they were leaving. I wish I lived closer and knew him better. My prayers are with you Linda and family as you grieve this extreme and unexpected loss. Tim was so special. May God'grace help you get through this day and the days to come.
