Jackie, Derek and I are so very sorry for your tremendous loss.  We have been praying for each of you for the last several months and will continue to pray that God draws you near to him and gives each of you the strength and peace you need to move forward as you try to find some kind of new normal.  We both thought a lot of Tim; always had a smile and such an easy nature about him.  He will be greatly missed by all. Keep climbing your mountains, one day at a time Jackie, and know that God will give you the strength to do so or carry you when it is simply too much.  Our deepest sympathy's to you, Cody and Morgan.
