Tim was a young man full of dreams, hopes and promise.
His dream was to build his house from the ground up and design it anyway he wanted to.
He was good with his hands.
His sense of humor was amazing and he was a total goof ball.
He was a child at heart, and I know he would've never grown out of that.
He loved to hike up at Flathead lake in Montana.
He was loyal, hardworking and loving.
He had only been in Iraq for a short while before his death.
He joined the army to start his life off new, so he could get out of his hometown and be a better person.

Timmy, I will miss and love you forever. I'll think of you everyday. You'll always be alive and well in my heart.

(this is Tim's girlfriend. We were going to get married when he was done with the service)

I love you, Tim
