    Dear Tim,

    Since our time together has come to an end, I just want you to know that I am sad that we didn’t make more time for more memories. Life goes by so very fast. The times we spent together – the many years riding, camping and going to meetings – will have carry us through until we meet again.

    To Tim’s family: Please know how much Tim was loved and will be missed.

    ~ Melody
