RAISE A GLASS! A tribute to my dear friend, Tim Abbott. You will be so very missed, good sir. I have had the pleasure of knowing you for 17 years - since Dawn was pregnant with Hogan. You were an AMAZING spirit. You were so vivacious and full of life that it was contagious. It was because of my friendship with you and Dawn - with a ton of support from you both that I began Balloonerific in 2000. You were my inspiration with your tireless work ethic and a smile on your face. I'll miss kicking your tail in Fantasy Football or seeing what "bone head" move you would have made at the draft. You were taken way too soon. I raise a glass to you, my friend. My heart is broken for Dawn, Josh, Hogan and little Emmerson.
