    I am so sorry to hear of Tim’s passing. I knew Tim his brothers from Eaton Estates where we grew up until they moved to Columbia Station. We used to play and build snow forts in the winter. Later we moved to Columbia Station where our moms continued being friends and socializing. I remember going downhill in their driveway in the red flyer wagon to end up in the drainage ditch in mud… One of our many fun times and memories. Forever Rest In Peace Tim

    Hi Sue…sorry to hear about Tim…I remember the good times we had in the late 80’s with my late wife Debbie…Lots of laughter and the party never wanted to end! Hope you have some recollection. And life goes on…for it must!!!
