    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all! Our deepest sympathy! We have had so many good times with Tim and Jennifer! Todd and Tim were neighbors their whole life, went trucking together for many years all over the US and Canada. We had many good times at their home, at the lake and on the pontoon, dinners, concerts, and vacations. We had many Christmas, New Years, Super bowl, Halloween and birthday get together’s with them, good friends and family! Tim, like Stan, always had a good joke to tell, and we had many laughs and good times. I always thought we had many more good times to come as we approached retirement together. Forever in our hearts! Love, Todd and Patty
