I've traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way"

I have known Tim my entire life since we were childhood friends. We had many great times together off and on through years, and even when many years had passed, when we were together the fond memories and laughs came easily with Tim. I am so grateful that we reconnected last April and that we had a ski trip together at Steamboat Springs CO. Lot's of laughs as we talked about the old days and some of our crazy times chasing around town in the Pill Wagon. Tim was still a great skier last April, and it was great to be on the mountain tops of CO with him. He will be truly missed.
