I knew Tim only slightly. He was always rather cordial. I learned through the news. I was absolutely flabbergasted--honestly! Love will always beat HATE.

Tim catered several large events for the business where I worked. He was always so cordial and kind to everyone, he made certain that every detail was perfect, and everyone knew that if Tim handled the event, the food would be delicious. Without fail, everyone I have spoken with has either had Tim cater an event (usually a wedding), or has been to an event that he catered. He has fed most of this county at one time or another. To his family and friends, I send my sincere sympathy. This community will feel his loss deeply.
