    Tim I think I speak for all of us at Kenmore Lanes when I say how much you are loved and missed. Your smiles and laughter always brighten up the room. You were a good friend to those who knew you and to the ones you just met. I will think of you often and I will never forget.

    Im a friend of your daughter and I know she misses you dearly.
    She wishes she had more time with you.

    After she was numb for a few years she finally realized you weren’t coming back. I think her brain wouldn’t let her believe that you were truly gone.

    She told me about how she won’t have you there by her side for many things and I think that scares her.

    I’ve noticed she likes to keep to herself about her feelings so I want it to be out there that she dose miss you.

    Every holiday and event she thinks of you.

    I just want to say that she misses you dearly even if she is afraid to say anything.

    Rest in peace

    Love
    Takillya

    I was very saddened to hear of your passing. I had left the Kirkland area some years ago and only recently returned on a visit. To hear this news so long after the fact makes my heart hurt. You were a good friend, father, and I will always hold dear the time that I shared with you. My thoughts and prayers are with your wife and daughter. God speed.
