Tom GillTracy, Cody and Kyle, I worked with Tim when I first started in construction. He took me under his wing and taught me so much, he gave me a lot of responsibility as a young college student and was always willing to teach and explain anything I had questions about. The knowledge he passed on to me has been tremendous in my career and I was able to start my own surveying company. I felt the gravity of his passing and regret not letting him know how much of an impact he made in my life. Words cannot express your loss and I am truly sorry.

We will keep you in our thoughts during this difficult time.
Bonnie Spencer-BeerRuth and Norm - So sorry to read the obituary of your son Timothy in this mornings newspaper. I can not believe how you are coping right now with the death of your brother as well one day apart. It has been years since we have been in touch - but I can picture your faces from high school and I pray that somehow you both can find peace. Know that many prayers are being said from your former Beck friends as well. Words are at a loss at a time like this.
Anne Semple GarrettRuth and Norm, I am so saddened to hear of your losses. Losing a brother and a son is unbelievably heartbreaking. May you find comfort in cherished memories.
