  5. My sincerest condolences carnal. You and your pops had such an amazing relationship and he was so proud of you. Your dad is the best role model I can think of in my life and I will always continue to look up to him. One word comes to mind when I think of Tim and that’s “content” he didn’t need much at all because he had a deep joy that I can only hope to find. God has been creating the perfect place for your dad in heaven that must have been so perfect there was nothing else to do but call him home to paradise where you will be with him again someday. I love you always my brother
