Dear Lesley, Chris and the entire Clarke family,
Please accept my condolences on the sad passing of Tim. He was a long-time co-worker, a fine friend and also recently my Supervisor. I thank him for his bright, humorous and caring outlook and can hear still hear him telling everyone to "Make it a Great Day" as he did for so many people. I sincerely admired him and will miss him very much.

Lesley and Chris,

I am very saddened at the news of Tim's passing.  You were both very welcoming to me when I first came to AEP.  You welcomed me into your home and treated me like a friend.  Please know that I will keep you all in my prayers as you go through these trying times.  I am sure that Tim would want us all to remember him for the happy guy he was and that is how I will alway think of him.  Please let me know if you need anything at all.

Lesley and Chris - I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of Tim. We will always remember Tim as being awesome. I can hear him yelling Oliver whenever he saw me and his infectious happy go lucky attitude will always be in our minds.

Please call us if you need anything at all.

Your friends

Tim was a wonderful person.  He brought light into the life of everyone he knew.  I will miss him every day.

"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." John 8:12
