Our Son


October 31, 1959 – October 11, 2013


He was employed as an “over the road” truck driver.

In three week stints,

his purpose was to cover thousands of miles delivering freight

to various destinations

throughout the country.

Choosing to have his wife and their little dog travel with him,

The goal was to arrive safely at his destination,

and deliver the goods.

The journey enabled him to experience the miles between.

Our journey is the same.

We have our point of origin (birth)

And our destination (death).

How we choose to travel the miles between

defines our purpose in life.

How we accomplish our purpose,

and with whom we travel,

is our choice.


When we choose to travel with Jesus,

the Holy Spirit is our constant companion.

Every experience, every encounter, every trial

is bearable,

because He is with us.   

We grow in our faith

as the mile markers accumulate.

God says to us….

“I am with you always,

even unto the end of time.”


My Prayer:  Thank you Lord,

for being Tim’s traveling companion

as he found his way through life

on his way back to You.
