To Carrie and Tim's Family- I was luck to have Tim as a student at Mayo High School in our TV production program and with us on Spartan Scene. Tim was fun to have in class. I could always count on his dry wit at just the right moment. He was always dependable, friendly and a joy to be around. After he graduated and was working at Hy Vee we get to visit when I shopped. I will miss his smile. I am glad I had the chance to know him and share some time with him at MHS and so sorry to learn that he left us so young.
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Dear Carrie and family,
We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of your dear Tim. We enjoyed visiting with him at Hy Vee during his career there and remember his happiness at his graduation from Cordon Bleu. He was a great young man. His presence made shopping a pleasure. Our hearts are with you as you grieve his loss. May many joyful memories, the comfort of dear friends and your faith that he is with our Lord provide you with healing and ease your sorrow. You will miss him always. His love remains forever in your heart. With our deep sympathy.
