    Thanks everyone for your heartfelt thoughts. It is wonderful to know that we are being thought of from friends and family near and far. For subsequent readers of this guestbook I did want to clarify that Tim did not have cancer but died of complications of several chronic illness that he suffered and that was triggered by a serious fall.
