To Sherry, your children and all the family. I just heard about the passing of Tim. My heart goes out to all of you. May all the good memories of Tim never fade away, but help you gain strength as time goes by. Tim was a classmate of mine back in Harvey. He will always be remembered. (Sherry were you from Harvey too? Your name sounds so familiar to me). Peace be with you.

THE PARTING GLASS For Tim it is Appos

Of all the money that e'er I spent
I spent it in good company
And all the mischief that e'er I have done
Alas it was to none but me
And all I did for want of wit
To memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

Oh all the comrades that e'er I had
Are sorry for my going away
And all the love ones that e'er I had
Would Bid me one more day to stay
But since it falls upon my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I will gently rise and softy call
Good night and God be with you all

Sherry & family,
My deepest condolences on your loss.
Grief doesn't stay for a day, week or year, it lasts a lifetime. It's like there's a hole in your heart that can never be patched. With great love comes great loss. Together you can get through "anything," that's one value he believed in.....love of family.
What incredible memories Tim left you with! He lived & played hard. He gave 100% to everything he did. Tim lived more life then 5 men normally do in his lifetime.
He left behind a legacy in each of you.
God Bless you & watch over you during this difficult time.
Love is eternal. You'll see him again...

Sherry, we are so sorry for your loss, our thoughts and prayers are with you and rest of the family.
I was grateful to have Timmy in my live for so long, for his guidance and his friendship. It's been a lot of years since Turlington. It was so cute every time you and Timmy would arrive somewhere; how you two would look at each other , then there was that same smile you two had and you knew the fun was about to start. Thank you making me part of that for all these years.
You can see Timmy and yourself in the great adults that Tracy , David and Earl grew into.
Timmy will be missed but never forgotten.
With all our Love & Deepest Sympathy,

Sherry, What a tragic shock! I'll always remember the spirited cousin I babysat and the amazing man he grew up to be, as well as the fun we had when our kids were involved in Glenwood football & cheerleading. Great memories. You and the family have my utmost empathy and my prayers.

Sherry, Tracy, David & Earl....
Let's see when you guys moved to Lynwood in about 1984 Tracy was one of my first friends. Hanging out at your house on the lake was a natural thing. You guys were involved in everything your kids did from baseball to girl scouts to taking us roller skating in your van. You even opened your home to the entire 8th grade to allow even the "not cool" people a good time. Fast forward 20 years. In October I got to meet with Tracy and visit at our 20 year reunion. We got to catch up lots and talk about how it was hard to live so far away but said she got to visit with you all regularly. To learn of Tim's passing was a shock and I know there is a major void in many of your lives that will never go away. To say my heart is sad for each of you wouldn't even come close to being a good term. You guys have lots of wonderful memories of your time with him. When you get sad think about them.
❤❤❤Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.❤❤❤

There isn't anything that I can say .... What I can do is remember the Good times> The funny times> The ride he gave Jack on the 4 wheeler> The Duck in the tub > The Pig thing.... and maybe an easier way to catch a fish in the lake. What I will remember is his smile > that could brighten up any day. His caring the love he had for you all and others around him . You now have a very nice Guardian Angel > He will watch over you and the family . I know one day you will feel that little cool breeze. There will be no reason for it > But it will be TIM> letting you know he's ok > and that he's close and watching. I Pray that the GOOD LORD WILL HOLD TIM AND YOU ALL IN THE HOLLOW OF HIS HAND and GIVE YOU ALL COMFORT AND LOVE . GOD BLESS .... WE WILL MISS HIM BUNCHES .... PEACE THE DAVIS FAMILY
