  1. To Timmy’s Family,
    We are so sorry for your loss. Please accept our deepest sympathy. May he Rest In Peace & God Speed…….

  2. Shannon and Ashley, Know that we are thinking of each of you during this most difficult time. We can’t imagine how hard it is to let go of a child even when we know they will be in the arms of our Lord Jesus. Our prayers are being sent to our Lord to give you all peace and comfort. He will live forever in the Kingdom of Heaven and you will see him again when it is time. Wish there was something we could say or do to make it easier for you each one. Timmy will live forever in your hearts and wonderful memories. He will always be with you in spirit.
    God, Please give this family peace and comfort and let them know that Timmy is with you. Thank you Jesus for listening to our prayers, In Jesus name we pray. Amen

  3. I am so sorry to hear about the tragic loss in your family, someone so young. Sometime when there is a death people may say ‘it was God’s plan’ or ‘God took them’ as if God is responsible for things like this but James 1:13 explains that God has nothing to do with such a painful event. Instead, he promises to bring to life again those in his memory who have died. John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15. Please accept my deepest condolences.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of someone so young cannot be comprehended completely. We can just imagine that God is holding Tim in his arms now. I will continue to keep your family in my prayers for comfort and understanding during your time of grieving.

  5. My family is grieving with you at this difficult time. We are praying for you and sending strength to get through the days ahead. Timmy really motivated my son Zach to want to open his own business some day. I am truly grateful that he was such an inspiration to my son. We will miss him, but are so thankful that we got to know him and spend the time with him that we did. He was a gift that will never be forgotten. The Knudsens – Rick, Lori, Andy, Zach, and Matthew

  6. Ashley & Shannon, Anita & John and all the family of Timmy, I was so sorry of hear of Timmy’s death and express my sincere sympathy’s to his family and friends. It must be so hard to think about going on without him but trust in God and your faith to help you through it all as he will provide you with the strength and courage that you will all need now and in the future. God works in mysterious ways and I am certain that he has wonderful plans for Timmy in heaven. I will continue to pray for all of you.

  7. We are so sorry for your loss. I know it cannot be easy. Lean on the Lord when you need to and let Him carry you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  8. Dear Ashley & Shannon & boys, Tim and family, Anita & John, Jake, Amber, Sarah, great-grandparents and families,
    There are no words to express how sad I am to lose Timmy. BUT I KNOW HE IS WITH THE LORD! His testimony was sure! Jesus never fails. The price he paid on calvary covered if all. Thank you Jesus for this Blessed Hope, for the assurance of heaven if we have put our faith and trust in you, like Timmy did. Only heaven will reveal what Timmy’s testimony did to bring this NE KS community and beyond to Christ. “To live is Christ, to die is gain!” Timmy has gained the place where “joy is unspeakable and full of glory!” He has seen Christ and our Heavenly Father!” He is meeting all of the saints that have gone on before us! So happy for him, but so sad for us that are feeling the loss of such a wonderful boy. We just have to trust in God’s will. Our life is just a vapor…. our family circle will not be broken!

  9. Dear Alfred, Cheryl, and Family,
    I was so very sorry to hear of Timmy’s passing. He sounds like a great young man. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
    With my deepest sympathy,
    Dinah Tilley (I used to work at Dr. Botz’s office.)

  10. Anita and family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. From all the memories I have seen posted about Timmy on facebook, I know he was a special young man. Although we haven’t seen each other in years, I think of you often. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
