Timmy,

What an awesome song ya'll recorded..one that I'm sure will always bring you great memories.

Though we will all carry on after your dad acquires his cross, it, nor him, will not be soon forgotten.

You're extremely fortunate to have so many wonderful memories with your dad!

Just wanted to share something I found as I was reading back through the post from Tims parties. Here is something special he had wrote to everyone at the bottom of his reply. "And Tim you were always the Star."


I thank the people who attend the parties as they are the real stars. I'm such a lucky man to have friends like yall. I hope you will continue in the future to come and let me share my house and all of the love that goes with it

I love you ALL!

Tim

I love you in a place
where there's no space or time
I love you
for in my life
you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone
and I was singing this song for you...

Tim.........You are still my hero ! !God bless ya!

Well, I'm tired and so weary
But I must go along
Till the Lord comes and calls me away, oh yes
Where the morning's so bright
And the Lamb is the light
And the night is as bright as the day, oh yes

There will be peace in the valley for me some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord, I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me!

There the flowers will be blooming
And the grass will be green
And the skies will be clear and serene, oh yes
The sun ever beams in this valley of dreams
And no cloud will ever be seen, oh yes!

There will be peace in the valley for me some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord, I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me!

Well the bear will be gentle
And the wolves will be tame
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb, oh yes
And the beasts from the wild shall be led by a child
And I'll be changed from this creature that I am, oh yes!



There will be peace in the valley for me some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord, I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me!

Tim,

I have only had the chance of going to two of your TIMMER FEST. The first one I lived less than an hour from you and wasnt going to come but you got on the phone and talked me into coming. You met me with a hug and a smile. It made me feel like I wasnt a newbie but that I had been coming to the party for years. The last year I made it to your birthday party and I felt like I had never left your house. I helped Bev make frozen margaritas and passed them to everyone. I have only gotten to chat with you a few times on chat but you make me and I am sure everyone else from reading these post feel like we are all special people but in turn YOU are the special one as YOU are the one because you have opened your house to all of us for so many years and has welcomed everyone. I have been debating for days about buying a new membership on here but every night I come and read this post and end up with tears streaming down my face. I knew that I had to tell you how special you were to me. I would give anything to take your pain away and keep you with us as I am sure everyone else wishes the same thing. But I know that you will become one of the best angels around and that obviously God needs you now.

Timmy and Kristen

I had to set and watch my dad pass on from cancer too. It was the hardest thing that I ever had to do. I never saw my dad sick a day in his life intill then. It was like seeing that one person you thought would live forever just disappear from you and when you need him the most or it so seems. I know what you are going thru and if ever you need anything just let me know.

Tim you are being called for a higher power now. You have a very special job waiting for you in Heaven. It is time to do that job, as your job here is thru. Time to go where there is no pain or sickness.

Love you always

Dee

Each time I've read these posts, I have delayed posting something myself mostly because I could not see for the tears in my eyes.

I met Tim in June of this year at an ES trail ride. Tim rode up behind me at our campsite and was talking to someone about his horse that the vet had diagnosed as "lame." Tim commented that the horse wasn't lame and maybe he should get a new vet. I asked him if a doctor tells ya you have cancer do you just get a new doctor?" Tim paused a moment, smiled and said "that's an idea." Little did I know he did have cancer. When I found out, I apoligized to Tim profusely. Tim laughed and never made me feel bad about the stupid comment I made.

I attended a couple of parties at Tim's house and as others have said he welcomed me as though he had known me for years. He was truly a person who never met a stranger.

The time that I will truly treasure is when Tim was in the hospital about a month ago. I called him to see if he was up for a visitor. He told me to come on up. I asked if I could bring anything and he said no. I got a message on the way to the hospital that he wanted a strawberry shake from Sonic. I picked up one for Tom, who was visiting at the time, Tim and me. Tom, Tim and I sat and chatted for couple of hours as we drank our shakes. At one point, I started to rub Tim's neck. He told me that he loved to be tickled. Tim lied down and I tickled his arms, legs, and feet as we continued to talk. Tim said that he felt the power of touch was very healing. He kept apologizing to me for his skin being dried from the chemo and radiation and his feet being dirty, but he didn’t understand that didn’t matter to me. Tim had been in the hospital for about 2 weeks. The next day Tim was released from the hospital. It made me think about how powerful touch can be – I know that just touching Tim made quite an impact on me. I gained as much from tickling Tim that night as he did.

I left that night thinking this is a man who has given so much to so many and the only thing he ever asked in return was for someone to touch him. I will always cherish the night that I just sat and talked to Tim and tickled him.

Young Tim, I have never lost anyone truly close to me and this is something that is impacting my life as I am sure it is many others. I want to thank you for sharing with us what you are going thru. My heart goes out to you and your family. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you with wonderful memories of the good times you’ve had with your father and ease the pain of your loss. Your father has touched so many lives, so many lonely souls. I feel very fortunate that I was one of them.

Timmers, good ride cowboy, good ride! May peace be with you.

Kim (Kimber463)

The Deal
The horses had been saddled earlier, in the grey of the dawn with no words spoken. As one, the two men rose from where they each sat, knowing the time had come. The campfire embers were all that remained from the long night of memories relived. The last of the coffee was thrown to the coals from tin cups worn shiny from constant use. These were men who had forged a friendship with hearts of iron, into a brotherhood of steel . With backs against each other, they had stood the best and worst of life's enduring trail. With horses side by side, in saddles of worn leather, one last look was shared across an endless land that had long been mistress to both. Across sun faded saddlehorns, a handshake was given to honor the deal made last night. A wink from one, a slight grin from the other. A pull of a right rein from one, to the left for the other. For my friend and brother, the trail's end was near but for me it would come later. In time, we would meet again, both upon winged horses and with new country to ride. It was the deal and I looked forward to it.....>monte<

What do you call someone who you have never met, but feels like your best friend?
What do you call someone who calls you "my brother" the second time you ever chat with him?
What do you call someone who invites strangers into his home with open arms?

You call him TIMMMMMERS!!!!!!!!!!

I will never forget your kindness.........Mike

Timmer,,the last time we talked was about prayer and good friend. There is a poem Penned many years ago,,,goes some thing like this!

We know not what the future holds in times like these today,
The castles that we start to build may crumble and decay,
With all earths vast uncertainties some poverty some wealth,
For some the best the heart could wish for others failing health,
Hold on to Gods unchanging hand no matter where you go,
Relinquish not your faith in him though weaked by the foe,
May Gods eternal leadership our stong hold ever be,
Oh strengthen Lord our faith our hope for what we cannot see!

God bless and be with you old Pard,,Stay close to heavens gate to welcome the rest of us Home!

Your friend,,horseman50 [Bob]
