Such sad news for such wonderful person. Tim was a wonderful person to work with. He worked out of the Dallas off as I currently work out of the DC office. Tim always made a point of stopping by my office to say hello whenever he was in town. Such wonderful, hard working person. You will forever be missed Tim!!!

Many blessings of comfort to the family.
