:( I am really sorry to hear that Tim has passed away. We often ran into each other at Publix, Ace Hardware and a few other local stores around the neighborhood. We live just about 1 mile from each other. I will miss gabbing and discussing TreasureWorks cookouts, places that we both wanted to search and places we already had searched. I had been over to his house a few times several months back. Since his health started declining I haven't seen him as much as I would have liked. We both shared the fight with cancers that are terminal and talked about it once in a while. We could understand what the other one was going through. Sometimes it helps when you can talk to someone who is fighting a very similar battle. The last time I saw him I was standing in line at Ace hardware and he was poking fun about something I was getting. I will miss him.

God Bless you, Tim. I hope you find that elusive treasure we spoke of.

B) I hit the wrong button again. This hit the wrong thread. Oh well, I can blame it on the cancer meds I am on. They mess up my motor skills and head workings. :woohoo:

I'll get to the cookout.....I did it last year and I was in some severe pain and still managed to put away 4 or 5 plates of those awesome ribs and a ton of other food. :lol: I'll be there.

I called Tim about once a week last fall/winter to keep track of how he was doing and try to lift his spirits. When I couldn't get through to his number I suspected the worst. Godspeed BigDogDad!
