having two kids.. I have a small understanding of what you are going through...nothing close to the real thing....

I am very sorry for your loss... No parent should ever have to bury their child.

Bill ,I am so sorry for your loss.

Bill, I just can't believe this. You were just in Afghanistan with me talking about this long year here and getting home to see your family and your son play football. You wouldn't even travel around much because your son didn't want you to not come home after a friends father was killed traveling around. When words fail all I can say is I am so sorry and my heart and prayers are with you. God's peace be with you my friend.

Bill, I can't believe it. I had no idea until I read an article about it in the USA Today on the flight home. I was sharing a story with my Dad & then just stopped dead when I saw Tim's name, I couldn't believe it. I'm so sorry, Bill, I know how proud you were of him & how much you loved him. I've been praying for you & your family ever since I read it on Saturday, & I'll keep on doing so. Please let me know if there's anything I can do.

Thank you once again for your thoughts, prayers, and kind words.

We miss our son. On Earth, he was what my wife and I focused our lives around. We had big dreams for Tim and he had bigger ones.

He was a loving son, grandson, and nephew, a Gators fan, a Broncos fan (and I'm a Raiders fan), an MMA fan, a fisherman, a mountain biker, a practical joker, an excellent imitator of his head coach, a smiling friend to all, a protector of those that couldn't always protect themselves, a kind and thoughtful brother to his teammates, a boy that always strived to do better, a lover of animals, a daredevil, and so much more.

The night of the visitation, there were A LOT of people that showed up wearing a #73 button that some Falcon Momma's put together and the time just flew by as my wife and I stood, listening to each and every one of them share a moment of our sons life that we hadn't experienced first hand. The day of the memorial service, our church ushers handed out an additional 500(and then some) buttons and I noticed when I got up on the stage to say a few words that the place was packed (our church has two services and seats roughly 1500). That really got me thinking.....if I had passed when I was my son's age (16)I don't really think that many people would have showed up. I would have had the obligatory family members and such, but not teachers, coaches, teammates, the multitude of friends, State Representatives......

Tim is a wonderful young man, for those that know him, he's a joy to be around.

We've had a few of his friends over since and they've spent some time in his room or helping me get our new printer set up or tossing the football with me or eating with us or anything, and I see the hurt, the pain, and the loss in their eyes and I can feel the hurt in their hearts. So, please continue to pray for them, as we do, that they find strength to make it daily as they start school and start the season looking to 'top the hill' and win another state championship.

Thank you once again for taking the time to post a message to us here.
