Tim was such a kind, decent, compassionate human being. I'm still trying to process his absence. I loved that conversation with Tim always seemed effortless, and even in the most casual, brief encounters never seemed burdened with the perfunctory ornaments of small talk. In everything he did, he made it obvious that he cared about people, not just his family (whom he obviously cherished deeply) but people in general. I always thought he had a twinkle in his eye.
He leaves as a legacy, a wonderful family who will struggle with his absence, but I'm sure cherish his continued presence. Farewell neighbour, friend.
