Tim was like a member of our family, as is Karen. In particular, Denise practically grew up around him, having knowing Tim since junior high and having had him present at all the major occasions in her life. He was a cherished mentor for her as she made her way to law school to ultimately become an attorney. He leaves behind a number of wonderful memories for us, such as his brilliant arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court (which Denise was privileged to have been invited to), his love of Cuban black beans which we enjoyed preparing for him, and his deep faith as evidenced not only by his acts, but by the intellectual conversations he would have with Ruben on theological matters.
He was always there for us when we needed an opinion, a recommendation or an explanation. He was a person who was always willing to help you in whatever way he could. He will forever be in our hearts and minds.
