Dear Barbara: I just got home from St. Mary's 11:30 mass where there was an announcement made about Tim's passing. I was not aware or I would have been there at the service yesterday.
Please know that you and your children are in my prayers. Tim was a good man and gave so much of himself in everything he did. He was a power of example of how a Christian should live. He was loved and admired by many. No question he will reap his rewards in eternal life.
I'm sorry I don't have your Texas address or I would be in touch with you.
Our love to all of you.
